Back Stage – Third term as chair for Brian Terhorst

Community radio KVMR General Manager Brian Terhorst was elected last week to his third term as National Federation of Community Broadcasters board chair.

This re-appointment follows Terhorst’s nomination, and subsequent election, to his second term on the national federation’s board of directors by the participant member stations of the Federation. The nomination was made in April at the Annual Community Radio Conference in Albuquerque, N.M.; the election was conducted by mailed ballots.

Board terms are for three years; chair terms are on a one-year basis.

“It’s an incredible honor to be selected by stations from all over the country to sit on the board,” Terhorst said. “Being selected by fellow board members to be their chair – for the third time – is really icing on the cake. It’s quite a compliment from an extraordinary group of people. It’s nice to know they feel I’m doing a good job.”

The Oakland-based, member-supported National Federation of Community Broadcasters is an alliance of about 200 stations, producers and individuals committed to community radio in the United States. Terhorst rejoins the board of eight with representatives from California, Colorado, Minnesota and Oregon.

Besides leading the Nevada City-headquartered KVMR, Terhorst hosts the “Harmony Ridge” show featuring folk and acoustic music Saturdays from 7 to 10 a.m.

KVMR can be heard at 89.5 on the FM radio dial or online at Call Terhorst at 265-9073 for any questions.
