WCTE's Community Advisory Board

WCTE CAB (l-r) Diana Baranowski, Nina Lunn, Kelly Swallows

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.

We gratefully welcome our CAB members and are proud to introduce them to you. They are Diana Baranowski, Nina Lunn, Kelly Swallows, Dr. Steve Copeland, Dr. Carl Owens and Jack Barton.

In this issue, we will spotlight the ladies…
