Comprised of volunteers from the station and the community,
the KOSW Radio Board is vital in helping the station stay the course
of its mission by overseeing the management and operational procedures.
Open to the public, your attendance at regular Board meetings is a great way to help KOSW grow and be more YOUR community radio station.

Starting at 6:00 p.m. on the third Monday of every month, Radio Board meetings are held at the
Canterbury Inn - 643 Ocean Shores Boulevard - Ocean Shores, WA.

Guests and volunteers are always welcome and encouraged to attend.

Please contact one of the following officers if you have questions, or if you are interested in becoming associated with the radio station.

John Farra - Treasurer

'The Shark' seems to have a thing for green stuff... Seaweed, money, moss on the Shark-Mobile...
Sunday afternoons at 1 p.m. is the time you can hear the 'Shark of the Shores' as he reports on and gives commentary about political and legal issues affecting our local region.

James 'A.J.' Ward - Secretary

Having stepped down as the station's Operations Manager, A.J. continues to serve as Technical Advisor to the staff of volunteers. Now on the Radio Board, his commitment to seeing the station continue to grow in it's mission takes a different tack.
