Native Public Media and Corporation for Public Broadcasting Provide Broadcast Training

Tribal Station Manager Maggie Rousu, of KKWE Radio, understands what it takes to run a successful radio station in an environment where complying with rules and regulations is serious. "Covid-19 made it impossible to attend much-needed training in-person because people were dying from the virus," states Rousu.

This prompted Melissa Begay, Operations Director for Native Public Media, to take compliance training for broadcasters online. "For the safety of our broadcasters and the general public, the 2021 Native Broadcast Summit was canceled, and training webinars are virtually offered instead," explained Begay. "Education and training are important tools our tribal broadcasters use in operating effective and successful stations."
