Board of Trustees

Oversight of the stations programs and activities is overseen by a volunteer Board of Trustees that meet regularly throughout the year to lead the activities of the organization through a variety of committees.

An Advisory Board, made up of community residents and individuals from the target population, brings a broad range of expertise and perspectives. This mix allows Classic Soul Radio to coalesce the range of knowledge and perspectives needed to initiate its mission and implement its activities.
