KDNK seeks candidates for advisory board
Public radio station KDNK is proving that the airwaves belong to the people.The station is reorganizing its Community Advisory Board, and its board of directors is recruiting volunteers for appointment to one-year terms.The Community Advisory Board is a requirement of KDNK’s federal Corporation for Public Broadcasting funding as mandated by the Public Telecommunication Act of 1978. According to the KDNK bylaws, CAB members are to be appointed by the board of directors for terms of one year and may be reappointed. The CAB can have up to 30 members and is open to all community members, though no individual or representative of any particular organization has a legal right to be on the CAB.The CAB is to submit an annual report to the board of directors outlining programming and community interests, and recommending direction in programming and opinions on the art of radio. The CAB is to be solely advisory, and no recommendations by the CAB are required to be implemented.The KDNK listening area includes Carbondale, Basalt, Aspen, Snowmass, Woody Creek, Redstone, Marble, Glenwood Springs, New Castle, Silt, Rifle and portions of the Eagle Valley. The board would especially like to see representation on the CAB from the Latino community, schools, youth, seniors, emergency services, non-profit organizations, the business sector, and both old and new residents of the area.An organizational meeting will take place shortly after the first of the year.
