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 three 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.

Carlos Velado, Vice-President

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.

Steve Crowley, Treasurer

After a circuitous 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 accounting and finance at Western State Colorado University. Radio has always played an important role in Steve’s life and he has been streaming KBUT for quite some time.. After completing his KBUT DJ training in the fall of 2013, Steve heard that there might be an opportunity for someone living in Gunnison with his particular skill set to serve on KBUT'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!

Nancy Wicks, Secretary

Nancy Wicks moved to the Gunnison Valley in 1992. For several years she has strived to live “sustainably” at the base of Round Mountain. In 2002, Nancy established Round Mountain Institute to promote sustainable living, alternative building and organic gardening through education programs. Through this non-profit endeavor, Nancy learned a lot about what a board member’s responsibilities entail. Now Nancy is excited to be a part of the KBUT Board of Directors. KBUT is like Nancy’s roommate out on the farm! Nancy is so ready to give back to her community by helping KBUT grow and thrive. 

Kirsten Atkins

Kristen first came to Crested Butte in 1987. KBUT has been a part of her Crested Butte experience for as long as she can remember. She enjoys listening to KBUT and turns to KBUT community radio for news and information, often streaming KBUT when she is away from home. Kirsten is eager to give back to this great organization. She strives to make sure that our community radio station continues to be an amazing and valuable resource to our valley.

Heather Bischoff

Heather grew up tuned-in to diverse radio in the northeast.  Since 2003 she has worked in various capacities at various station including, 88.5 WRUR in Rochester, NY, 102.7 WEQX in Manchester, VT and 105.9 WOMM in Burlington, VT. Heather has sought out unique stations where ever she goes (KBUT being partly why she's chosen to call CB home).
In addition to her broadcasting experience, Heather has worked with a variety of independent publishing projects further solidifying her belief in the power of alternatives to mainstream media. As a Board Member, she is empowered to fulfill these beliefs by dedicating time and energy to KBUT's mission.

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.

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.

Marcus Lock

Marcus has been an avid listener of public radio for most of his life. Marcus realizes how fortunate we are to have KBUT in our community. Marcus depends on KBUT to satiate his eclectic taste in all things music, news, and entertainment.
As the managing member of Law of the Rockies, Marcus practices law in a wide range of areas. He hopes that he will be able to use his knowledge and experience as an attorney to further the interests of KBUT and help protect this valuable community asset. When Marcus is not in the office, he is usually spending time with his wife and five kids in this gigantic playground we all call home.
