General Manager’s Report to the New Wave Corporation Board of DirectorsJune 19, 2007

Financial Affairs –

• •

Financial statements

Transmitter update:

  •  I solicited bids for the HVAC and electrical work based on Gary

    Froeschner’s Installation plan. Four companies have responsed. Reed Heating and Air Conditioning have submitted a bid of $19,162. Brunner- Peters, Chapman, and All Heating & Air are still working on their bids.

  •  Mike McGowan is proceeding with elements of the transmitter installation that are not dependent on the new electrical installation.

    Other infrastructure:

  •  We have received a bid of $3199.00 from Reed Heating & Air

    Conditioning for a replacement air handler for the air & production studios (new conventional air handler, new supply registers & ducts, new safe pan & drains). They also have a used 2 year old air handler for $2999.00.

  •  Rob Nix has roughed in opening for the drop-down attic door in the bathroom, but do not yet have a commitment;

Resource Development –

• See attached Development Director’s report.

Programs and Services –

• Program Committee update:

  •  Met June 5th.
  •  In working on the ballot for programmers to use to elect programmers to the Program Committee, we–Kevin Walsh, Jules Rains and I–came across a number of problems in the Board’s policy establishing and charging the Program Committee.

    The chief problem being the disenfranchisement of a significant number of

    programmers and producers of program material: programmer

New business –

membership on the committee is limited to one (1) local talk programmer and four (4) music programmers–each representing a different music genre. This excludes over a dozen volunteers who are either national programming board operators, substitutes, or producers of programming material who do not hold a regular on-air shift.

Part of the problem, I believe comes from there being no definition or reference to a definition of what is a programmer. The description of a Programmer Producer in Section III of the Programmers’ Handbook adopted by the Board at the April 17, 2007 meeting, is the best we have. I propose that that description and reference be added to the Programming Committee resolution.

I further propose that the programmers elect six programmers to the committee on the basis of this description, with at least one doing local talk programming, at least four doing music programming and the sixth be any eligible programmer regardless of programming or production type except that each music programmer represent a different genre of music.

I also suggest that the Committee’s composition be thirteen persons reflecting that the General Manager is a ex officio member of all committees of the New Wave Corporation according to Article 5.01 of the Bylaws.

I suggest that the committee elect its officers–not just a chairperson. We have needed a secretary.

I propose that Charge #2 be changed from “…advise programmers on ways to improve quality” to “facilitate programmers’ improvement in quality of production through development and implementation of training programs.”

I also propose that Charge #7 also include the facilitation of the election of programmers to the Programming Committee.

I do hope that you will take time to review these proposed changes and support their adoption by the Board of Directors. I would like to include them in the process and on the ballot for this year’s election of new programmers to the Committee.

I am attaching a copy of the current policy, the policy with the proposed changes, Section III of the Programmers’ Handbook, and a draft of the ballot incorporating the proposed changes, for your perusal.

• Sheryl Clapton is working on a AmeriCorps proposal for a youth entrepreneurial educational program for KOPN.

Respectfully submitted,
