Staff

KBUT has a small but dedicated staff. Staff members handle the tasks of managing the programming, finances, volunteers, membership, underwriters, grants, donors, events, and the music library for the station.

Eileen Hughes, General Manager

gm@kbut.org - 970-349-5225 ext. 11

Eileen accidentally moved to Crested Butte from Homer, Alaska in 1994. Eileen and her husband Jack planned to spend one winter in Crested Butte, but the sunny weather, longer winter days, recreational opportunities and great community lured them into making Crested Butte their new home. Eileen has been involved in community radio most of her life as a listener, supporter and volunteer DJ. Eileen was the News Director at KBBI Public Radio in Homer, Alaska for many years and was KBUT’s Program Director for a stint in the late 90’s. Eileen was hired as KBUT’s General Manager in December 2012. Eileen’s show “The Dirt Farmer’s Revenge” airs on Thursday nights from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Chad Reich, Program Director

chad@kbut.org - 970-349-5225 ext. 10

Chad moved to Crested Butte after graduating from the University of Iowa in August 2005. He came for the fantastic biking and skiing and stayed for the community here in the valley. Chad joined KBUT as a volunteer shortly after arriving in CB, became the Music Director in late 2006 and began serving as the Program Director in July of 2008. He is on air Mondays from noon to 2 pm.

Tyler Lucas, Underwriting & Music Director

underwriting@kbut.org / music@kbut.org970-349-5225 ext. 15

Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, Tyler moved to Colorado in 2001. After graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2005, he moved to Crested Butte to ski and mountain bike. The rest is history. Tyler began volunteering at KBUT pledge drives and events in 2006, and in 2011 became a fill-in DJ. He now has his own show, “Playin’ Thru” on Thursdays 10-Noon. In May 2013, Tyler joined the KBUT staff as the Underwriting Director. He is also active in the local music scene, playing guitar.
