KBOO has new managers…Yes, two!

Monica Beemer and Mic Crenshaw, two very well-known local non-profit leaders begin their stewardship at KBOO later this month.  They’ll share the duties of Station Manager.

Monica plans to focus on KBOO’s financial well-being while Mic looks forward to working closely with personnel — both paid staff and volunteer programmers.  In a joint statement, the two expressed eagerness at the prospect of team management: “We would each hold responsibility for parts of the position that best utilized our strengths, skills and interests and support each other in fulfilling those parts.”

Come on Down to KBOO for the Winter Membership Drive

Categories:
Do you want to get more involved with KBOO?  This is your time!  KBOO’s Winter Membership Drive begins Thursday, February 6th  through Saturday, February 15th.  
 
KBOO’s existence depends on on-air membership drives as more than 80% of our funding comes from our listeners--this is, in part, what allows KBOO to be so independent and unique.  We ask that all volunteers at KBOO  help with the drive, as we have more than 400 shifts to fill!
