From Neil Best's Desk: Strengthening Community Ties

KUNC Pres. Neil Best

You have had a chance to learn about KUNC’s new community series, Get Involved Colorado, through on-air and digital updating.

The goal is to share, each month, through our broadcasts and website, background about a local organization that depends upon volunteers to assist in their efforts to serve the community.

As we've discussed in this forum, the role of broadcasting is changing. What once was very much a one-way street (radio staffs broadcast and listeners listened) is increasingly interactive. We think that makes for a better system.

Knowing how vested you and your family are in your community, it is our desire and intent to help with the process of connecting communities.

We will continue on a monthly basis to introduce you to nonprofit organizations across the KUNC listening area that can benefit from your talents and enthusiasm.

We've already highlighted several worthy organizations. To recommend agencies and organizations that would benefit from additional volunteers contact KUNC’s Robert Leja at robert.leja@kunc.org.

Warm Regards,

President & CEO
