The WBAI Local Station Board (LSB) is seeking members for consideration to sit on its Programming Committee. Briefly, the mandate of this vital committee is to review WBAI programming for mission compliance; to ensure that programming respond to the diverse needs of the listeners and to examine the process for programming decisions and evaluations.
The Programming Committee is to consist of 7 members, three Local Station Board members (who have already been elected by the full LSB), and 4 more members from the general listenership. These members will be chosen by the full LSB from the pool of applications that are submitted.
As WBAI is committed to diversity, both demographically and geographically, this application is designed to help us maintain that commitment. We encourage all listeners and staff (paid and unpaid) to apply.
