Kayla Black brings a professional background to her role as voice trainer and podcast host.

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.

Meanwhile, BCB has created two studio facilities in the Winslow area.

Sustainable Bainbridge funded a studio for adult volunteers at the Marge Williams Center on Winslow Way, and the Rotary Club awarded a grant that has equipped the radio studio at Bainbridge High School.

By the beginning of next year, we plan to add internet streaming radio running continuously each day.  That would be in addition to continuing our offering of on-demand radio shows in the form of podcasts.

And, if funds are sufficient, we also intend next year to broadcast local information and updates in case of emergencies.
