Board Election

Candidates for Board of Directors

KBUT is holding its annual membership meeting on Saturday, January 11th at 5:30 p.m. at Crested Butte Town Hall. Members will elect three candidates to the KBUT Board of Directors, and there is an additional vote to amend the KBUT bylaws. Ballots will be available at the KBUT studios starting Friday, January 3 for members in good standing. Ballots will also be available at the meeting, or members can vote online using this form.

The candidates running for election are: Heather Bischoff, Steve Crowley, & Karah Cunningham.

The Ballot Question reads as follows:
Shall KBUT's Bylaws be amended to change the constitution of a quorum for the transaction of business at any meeting of the Board of Directors from five directors to a majority of seated members of the Board by amending Section 7 of Article II to state: "A majority of the seated directors shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at any meeting of the Board of Directors."


The Board of Directors will hold a regular meeting following the annual meeting. For more information contact KBUT GM Eileen Hughes at 349-5225.

Heather Bischoff

I'm excited by the prospect of joining forces with you all in ushering KBUT's continued awesomeness in our community! Being a well-traveled, independent artist, I've worn many hats and possess a keen sense for creative collaboration. I like to understand the big picture while being mindful of all the little details that contribute to the whole. Beyond my love for music, I'm invested in the well-being of our community and the crucial role of independent media serving it.

I grew up tuned-in to diverse radio (both commercial and non-profit) in the northeast and got my feet wet in 2003 behind the scenes at 88.5 WRUR in Rochester, NY. I worked as Creative Services Director in addition to DJing and supporting efforts in event production, fundraising, promotions and business management. Most notably, I organized and presented a Katrina Relief Concert showcasing local music while raising awareness and funds for New Orleans. Additionally, I've 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 I go (KBUT being partly why I've chosen to call CB home).

Similar to my broadcasting experience, I've worked with a variety of independent publishing projects which has further solidified my belief in the power of alternatives to mainstream media. If elected to KBUT's Board of Directors, I will be empowered to fulfill these beliefs by dedicating time/energy to our station's mission. I'm particularly interested in Development, Events and Creative Consulting.

Steve Crowley

Steve Crowley grew up in Helena Montana and spent his first 40 years in Montana.  Helena was pretty void of exposure to the outside world, but the town did have a decent radio station—KCAP.  Through KCAP, young Crowley’s mind was molded during the sixties and early seventies by listening to bands like Sugar Loaf, The Grassroots, Led Zeppelin, and The Rolling Stones.  Steve became interested in outdoor activities in grade school and became an enthusiastic skier, cyclist, mountaineer and white-water boater.  While Steve’s mountaineering endeavors have mellowed to the hiking end of the spectrum his interests in skiing, biking, and boating remain undiminished. 
 
At age eight, Steve became fascinated with a place called Gunnison Colorado because it often beat out Wisdom Montana as the coldest spot in the lower 48—Steve likes cold weather.  When Steve turned twenty he began a circuitous journey to Gunnison taking a brief stop (twenty years) in Missoula Montana and the Bitterroot Valley—the home of KUFM, Montana’s premier radio station.  Then Steve turned forty and spent his mid-life crisis skiing at Alta and earning his Ph.D. in accounting and information systems at The University of Utah in Salt Lake City—home of KRCL. 
 
Mistaking north for southeast, Steve returned to Montana clutching his fresh sheepskin and got a job as an accounting professor at Montana State University, where he had flunked out when he was 18, in Bozeman—home of KGLT and Bridger Bowl.  After three years in Bozeman, Steve realized he had made a wrong turn in Salt Lake and he got a job at San Francisco State University in San Francisco—home of KUED, a bit west of Gunnison.  Realizing that there was no skiing in San Francisco he finally homed in on Colorado exploring Durango—home of KSUT and Purgatory; Ridgway—KVNF, KOTO, and Telluride; and, Grand Junction where Steve became a programmer at KAFM, but overshot Gunnison.
 
Steve finally got a map and is realizing his life-long dream of moving to Gunnison Colorado and teaching at Western.  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 this fall.  After completing the first training session in November 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!

Karah Cunningham

Hello my name is Karah Cunningham and I am seeking reelection to the Board of Directors for KBUT Community Radio. I have been involved with KBUT since 1991 as a volunteer DJ and in 2010 ran and was elected onto the Board. I am very passionate about community radio and its future. I also run my own businesses. In the last three years I have helped KBUT hire and secure its new general manager, and been directly involved with the Power Up signal upgrade project on many facets, which was successfully completed in October. I like to think I bring a fresh outlook to the table and can wear many hats when need be, I ask for your vote to reelect me for three more years to continue service to the radio station and the community. If you would like more information about me I can be reached at: kandb_4@msn.com
