Community Advisory Board

The existence of a Community Advisory Board (CAB) is mandated by the Federal Communications Act. Public stations are not eligible for funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting unless they establish a Community Advisory Board. The CAB is a direct arm of the KVNF Board of Directors and serves as a review and comment body for the Board of Directors. It is the legal mission of CAB to review and comment on the programming goals established, the service provided and the significant policy decisions made by the station.

The CAB is responsible for determining whether the programming, service and policies of KVNF are meeting the particular educational and cultural needs of the many communities it serves. Our CAB members truly represent the geographical distance and diversity of our 10,000 square mile listening area.
