Community Volunteer Council
KBYU’s Community Volunteer Council (CVC) is an advisory council composed of viewers, listeners, and leaders who volunteer time each month to better help Eleven and Classical 89 meet local interests and needs. Members represent the broad perspectives that make our audience unique, and their recommendations allow us to better represent and serve the community. Meetings are open to the public.

KBYU is in the process of creating a new strategic plan and CVC members were asked to participate by offering their perspectives and suggestions. As a prelude to the CVC discussion about the stations’ purpose and role in the community, staff presented background information about the history and current status of KBYU Eleven and Classical 89 as well as Utah’s changing media environment. Regarding KBYU Eleven, it was recommended that the station continue offering a broad service—with programs that appeal to a wide variety of audiences and to make serving the significant number of Utah households who rely on over-the-air broadcast a priority. CVC members believe the community values Eleven as a safe place for their children and asked the staff to continue providing “family friendly” programs in the early evening hours. It was also suggested that Eleven widen the variety of people and stories featured in the programs it broadcasts to better reflect the diversity of the state’s population. Additionally, it was recommended that the station promote the non-commercial nature of KBYU’s broadcast schedule, particularly around children’s programs. During their discussion of Classical 89, the CVC encouraged the station to continue having the station hosts provide background information about the music, composers, and performers and to promote the opportunity Classical 89 offers to explore classical music. The CVC also advised that the station place an explicit invitation prominently on its website encouraging listeners to share their thoughts and comments about the station. The meeting concluded with reports from the membership department and the election of Marian Howe-Taylor as the CVC Vice Chair for 2013.
