"Our Community Advisory Board (CAB) was formed to provide a vehicle for effective community input for WCTE. The CAB reviews the station’s programming and its service to the community. The board then advises WCTE President and CEO Becky Magura, who represents the station’s governing body, the Upper Cumberland Broadcast Council."
Romola Drost
"On June 12th, the last night of the Great TV Auction, Romola Drost was kidnapped from her traditional spot behind the Art Board and escorted to the stage. Under the hot lights and in front of the TV cameras, she smiled as the WCTE staff and Auction volunteers sang Happy Birthday to her in honor of her 90th birthday."
"Thompson is one of WCTE’s all-star volunteers. She is comfortable and poised in front of the cameras, and is a valued on-air personality during the station’s Pledge Drives. In the past, she has helped out with Station’s of Imagination, WCTE’s event for kids at the Cookeville Fall Funfest."
