WPPB Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board for WPPB will hold a regular meeting on Friday, February 10, 2017 at 6 PM at the home of John and Lindsay Landes, 21 Bluff Point Rd., Sag Harbor, NY. The public is welcome.
  Public Broadcasting’s Community Advisory Board (CAB) is a volunteer group of interested listeners who meet twice yearly to gather public comments and ideas as to whether the programming and policies of WPPB meet the specialized educational and cultural needs of the communities on the Eastern End of Long Island served by public radio station WPPB-FM. All CAB meetings are open to the public and the Board and Management of Peconic Public Broadcasting and the Staff of WPPB.  

The Community Advisory Board, as required by federal law, reviews the programming goals established by the station, and assesses whether the programming and other policies of the station are meeting the specialized educational and cultural needs of the communities served by the station. The CAB deliberates independently of station management and Board of Trustees of Peconic Public Broadcasting, determining its own agenda and electing its own leadership. The CAB is an advisory body only, and is not authorized to exercise any control over WPPB’s daily management or operations. The CAB conveys its findings and recommendations based on public input to the Board of Trustees. All Community Advisory Board meetings are open to the public and held twice each year. Meeting schedules are posted on the WPPB website, announced on the air and printed as a Public Notice, at least two weeks in advance of each meeting, in the Southampton Press.
