Our overall radio project — called Bainbridge Community Broadcasting or BCB — is brought to the island by local nonprofit Sustainable Bainbridge.

Expect stories — all with a local focus — about artists, musicians, local food, farming and gardening, island nature, outdoor activities, community issues, local history, local economy, and the schools.

Our BCB project spans the generations — seniors, other adults, teenagers. And our current group of more than 30 active adult volunteers is supplemented by the Bainbridge High School Radio Club that BCB helped to establish and equip. BCB will continue to seek local volunteers — with or without prior radio experience — to fill openings for interview hosts, studio techs, audio editors, trainers, schedulers and social media power users.

Contact us to inquire about opportunities for you to play a role in local community radio!

And for more information about opportunities for volunteers or how to receive BCB’s radio shows, contact Barry Peters, the BCB Project Manager, at BCB@BestofBCB.org.

When contacting BCB about your potential interest as a volunteer, please let us know the community topics that are of particular interest to you and any relevant experience or background that you may bring to BCB. Or simply fill in our contact form for potential volunteers.
