The five new members will supplement the following roster of seated members serving on Radio Boise’s board of directors (listed alphabetically): Jeff Abrams, Steve Fulton, Patty Haller, Art Hodge, Dave Krick, Scot Oliver and Jack Van Valkenburgh.

Radio Boise’s area of service covers almost 500,000 people and spans over 3,000 square miles.  In addition to the terrestrial broadcast on 89.9 fm, their internet broadcast can be heard on www.radioboise.org.  The organization will be exclusive beneficiaries of next week’s Treefort Music Fest – a four day gathering of over 130 emerging artists on eight stages throughout downtown Boise.
