At KRBD’s annual meeting on Saturday, Nov. 15, Karen Petersen was recognized as KRBD’s Volunteer of the Year. Karen hosts Island Exposure, which airs Saturdays from 7-9 p.m. The shows all are recorded from the comfort of her home in Thorne Bay then mailed to the station for airing. Lately, she has been sending classical shows, too, as back up for any of the classical shows that might need help. What really set her apart (because you must know how difficult it is to choose just one volunteer from all of the many wonderful volunteers who contribute their time and energy to the station) was setting up substations on POW during the fall membership drive. She not only signed up new members, but we understand she helped her local library fundraise at the same time.
Thank you, Karen, for all that you contribute to KRBD!
