The 27 members of Louisville Public Media’s Community Advisory Board are a diverse group of people who care about our community, come from all over the area, and believe LPM’s music, news, calendar service and events can connect people and make life in our city better.

Louisville Public Media is far more than its three well-loved, non-commercial radio stations: 89.3 WFPL News, 91.9 WFPK Independent and 90.5 WUOL Classical. It puts on events like WFPK Waterfront Wednesdays, which bring together 15,000 people for free concerts with the best local and national bands at the Big Four Lawn. And it runs Do502, the citywide events calendar.

It also operates the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting, which digs deep into public records and holds accountable those with money and privilege. LPM goes into Jefferson County Public Schools to introduce children to classical music. And it brings together people across race, class, gender and politics to talk about issues that matter.

LPM strives to be a community commons for ideas, culture and information sharing. Our Advisory Board members give us feedback and guidance on how to best meet that mission.

Board members talk with their neighbors, attend our events and work with LPM’s board of directors and staff. Like LPM itself, the Advisory Board aims to connect our community.

The Advisory Board meets every other month for about an hour at LPM’s studios on South 4th street. In between the meetings, we may ask you to listen to our radio programs, attend our events and be part of committees working on specific projects. Sometimes we’ll ask you to meet with people in your neighborhood or others to get feedback on our work or to learn about needs we can help meet.

No matter your skills or interests, serving on the Community Advisory Board offers you an opportunity to help make Louisville Public Media the best place for news, entertainment and connecting our neighbors to each other.
