5-Year Strategic Plan

The KBUT Board of Directors has recently finalized a five year strategic plan (2012-2017), providing a vision for continued growth & success in serving our community. All future goals are developed keeping our Mission Statement in mind: "KBUT Community Radio exists to enrich and unify the Gunnison Valley through information, entertainment and community involvement."

Board Members

The KBUT Board of Directors is comprised of nine volunteer members. Their duties include hiring and evaluating the general manager, developing and implementing a long-range strategic plan outlining the goals and objectives of the station, fundraising and fiscal accountability. Terms are for two years. Members are elected by the membership at the Annual Members’ Meeting held every year. The board holds a regular meeting every other month, and meetings are open to the public.

Jeff Scott, President

Jeff has been listening to sounds emitted over the airwaves since he was a wee lad, and he has been listening to KBUT's airwaves since moving here in 2004. Like a moth to flame, he was drawn to KBUT's focus on the community, so when asked to be on the Board shortly after moving here, he jumped at the chance. A product designer, business consultant, and tech-savvy super-geek, Jeff has an uncanny ability to think both outside the box and way beyond any shape you throw at him, and KBUT's community is all the better for it.

Steve Crowley, Vice-President

After a circuitious few decades around the Western United States, Steve finally got a map and is realizing his life-long dream of moving to Gunnison, Colorado and teaching at Western State Colorado University. He had many adventures on his journey to Gunnison. Along the way he has picked up a BS in accounting and finance, a master’s in accounting, a Ph.D. in accounting and information systems, a CPA license in Colorado and a Certified Management Accountant’s (CMA) certificate. Steve has used his skills to teach university students accounting and finance concepts as a professor at seven campuses and has helped launch businesses in the construction and craft brewing industries.
 
Radio has always played an important role in Steve’s life and he has been streaming KBUT for quite some time. KBUT is a fantastic community resource and he contacted Josh Elmer to inquire about programmer training in the fall of 2013. After completing the first training session, Josh told Steve that there might also be an opportunity for someone living in Gunnison with Steve’s skill set to serve on the station’s board. What a great way to take his involvement in radio to another level and give back to something that has impacted his life in such a positive way!

Christy Kong-Eaton, Treasurer

Christy first moved to Crested Butte in 1993 and has been an avid KBUT listener ever since.  Her diverse background encompasses everything from classical dance training to a Wall Street trading floor. She is the founder and principal of Red Lady Capital Management and remains an active participant within the Crested Butte theatre and dance community.

Tricia Seeberg, Secretary

I moved to Crested Butte in 1995 from Los Angeles and immediately got involved with the arts, working backstage for a CBMT production, then becoming a volunteer DJ with KBUT in 1996 or 1997. I started out playing jazz but started hosting bluegrass on the Orange Blossom Special in 2009 or thereabouts. I remain involved with theatre as much as possible. I have a strong administrative background and currently work for Mountain Express as a bus driver and administrative assistant. I am also website administrator for the Center for the Arts Crested Butte. KBUT has been a mainstay for me through the years, and I believe it is one of the most valuable resources in the Gunnison Valley. I’m proud to be on the board and look forward to the challenges that lie ahead for KBUT and public radio in general.

Alex Fenlon

Alex Fenlon is a long-time community radio fan, having grown up in a household surrounded by NPR and classical music. He has been on the KBUT Board of Directors for the last 6 years, serving as President from 2011-2013. Before his service on the Board, he started as a volunteer DJ in 1997, and was on the staff for 8 years. 
 
Alex is enthused about KBUT's current capital campaign and the completion of the new transmitter project in Gunnison. He is a professional photographer based in Crested Butte, where he lives with his wife and 4-year old daughter.

Karah Cunningham

Karah Cunningham has been involved with KBUT since 1991, becoming a volunteer DJ when she moved to CB. Karah wanted to be more involved and learn new skills so ran and got elected for the BOD in January of 2011. She enjoys all the challenges that have come up to keep and make KBUT an exceptional station and experience. Karah particularly enjoys community outreach and fundraising for the station. She plans on many more years with KBUT.

Arvin Ram

Arvin has lived in Crested Butte for almost a decade. He was an on-air DJ from 2007-2012. He owns and operates Townie Books and Rumors Coffee and Tea House.

Carlos Velado

Carlos Velado has been a DJ and supporter of KBUT since 2000. His life as a KBUT DJ began shortly after he moved to the valley as the host of the Midnight Creeper Show. He decided to run for the Board of Directors in order to give more to the station that he believes is one of the best in the world. He is currently the Community Development Director for the Town of Mt Crested Butte.

Heather Bischoff

Heather grew up tuned-in to diverse radio (both commercial and non-profit) in the northeast and got her feet wet in 2003 behind the scenes at 88.5 WRUR in Rochester, NY. She worked as Creative Services Director in addition to DJing and supporting efforts in event production, fundraising, promotions and business management. Most notably, she organized and presented a Katrina Relief Concert showcasing local music while raising awareness and funds for New Orleans. Additionally, Heather has worked/DJed at 102.7 WEQX in Manchester, VT and 105.9 WOMM in Burlington, VT and continue to seek out unique stations where ever she goes (KBUT being partly why she's chosen to call CB home).

Similar to her broadcasting experience,Heather has worked with a variety of independent publishing projects which has further solidified her belief in the power of alternatives to mainstream media. As a Board Member, she is empowered to fulfill these beliefs by dedicating time/energy to our station's mission. She is particularly interested in Development, Events and Creative Consulting.
