The CAB operates independently of the governing body and staff of The Public's Radio and is intended to provide a vehicle for effective community input into the station’s governing body about station programming, community service, and impact on the community from the station’s major policy decisions.

The role of the board is advisory in nature and does not have the power to exercise any control over the daily management or operation of the station.

The members of the Community Advisory Board are:

  • Morayo Akande
  • Frank Baptista
  • Antonieta Falconi
  • Kevin Gaw
  • Alexandra Hahn
  • Corrine Hill
  • Diana Kushner
  • David Leach
