KVMR board of directors elects new members and officers

The Nevada City Community Broadcast Group, the nonprofit organization that operates community radio station KVMR at 89.5 FM locally and at http://www.kvmr.org worldwide, has elected Diane McIntire as its president of the board of directors for the coming year.

McIntire, of Nevada City, is an architectural designer and general building contractor and has served on the KVMR board since 2014.

She is a KVMR broadcaster and was the owner representative for KVMR and the Nevada Theatre overseeing the construction of the Bridge Street Project located at 120 Bridge St., which provided a new home for KVMR and a new backstage addition for the Nevada Theatre.

She succeeds Mary Ross, who recently served six years on the KVMR Board, including two years as its president.

Ross will continue as a prominent member of the Capital Campaign Committee that, in collaboration with the Nevada Theatre Commission, leads the final fundraising phase for the Bridge Street Project.

“KVMR plays such an important role giving voice to our community and other nonprofit organizations as well as celebrating independent artists and music of the world,” said McIntire. “I believe that independent media is critical to our freedom and must be protected. Our new building allows us to deliver quality programming and content we could not offer previously while increasing our collaboration with other nonprofit organizations.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead the board during these exciting times.”

David Franco was elected KVMR’s vice president. Sharon Connor was elected as secretary, and Barbara Jicha will continue as treasurer.

New additions to the board include Elisa Parker, a KVMR broadcaster and founder of See Jane Do; and Richard Dunk, a longtime KVMR broadcaster and previous board president.

Other continuing board members include KVMR broadcaster, musician, and author Meri St. Mary; KVMR broadcaster, field recording and sound collage artist and recording engineer Tenali Hrenrak; and Phil Ritti, an expert in digital media archiving.

This year KVMR celebrated its 37th year as an independent community radio station with extended reach to the Woodland area at 104.7 FM and to Camino/Placerville at 88.3 FM.

KVMR is also heard in the Tahoe/Truckee area at 105.1 FM and online around the world at KVMR.ORG. KVMR’s fall membership drive is under way this week with all listeners invited to call 530-265-9555 or go to KVMR.org to join or renew their membership.
