STATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Letter from the Chair
My name is Sheila B. Nanaeto, I am an enrolled member of the Southern Ute Indian Tribe located in Southwestern Colorado. I am the Station Manager of KSUT Tribal Radio. Established in 1976 KSUT serves the surrounding Native communities of the Southern Ute, Ute Mountain Ute, Apache, Dine Nations of the Four-Corners region.
I would like to first say thank you for the opportunity to serve as the Chair of the Station Advisory Committee. I started in radio as a volunteer in January of 2000 hosting the Wednesday Native Morning Show; hired fulltime in January 2010. Music has been a passion of mine since a young age. Traveling throughout Indian Country dancing and singing with family and friends attending ceremonies and powwows.
I want to welcome each of you to utilize the programs and services provided by Native Public Media. The Station Advisory Committee serves as a liaison that bring forth the needs of the Native radio network to Native Public Media’s Board of Directors.
The year we have all experienced has brought challenges for Native stations to continue to provide resources for our own individual communities. The Station Advisory Committee is dedicated to helping Native radio continue to serve their communities while navigating the new obstacles. Thank you for all you do for your people.
Chair, Southewest Representative
What We Do
The Station Advisory Committee (SAC), a formal committee of the Native Public Media Board of Directors, is critical to the work and services of NPM. Comprised of 7 representatives from the Native radio network, members help to ensure that our services continue to meet the arising and evolving needs of Native stations; specifically those stations that are receiving the Community Service Grant through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
