WJFF penalized for 2011 deficiencies; New board and general manager establish compliance measures

The new board of trustees, elected in June 2013, now meets in full compliance with the open meetings regulation and has appointed a community advisory board (CAB) which meets regularly in open sessions. Adam Weinreich, the new general manager at WJFF, has worked under the guidance of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to put other compliance procedures in place and to create an archive of compliance documentation.

“The hard work that the new trustees and our staff have put toward full compliance at our community radio station is impressive and I am proud to be working alongside them,” said Hedlund. “Our listeners and supporters have stood by us as we worked to restore openness and accountability at WJFF. I cannot say enough about the many people who have stepped forward in volunteer roles and with their pledges of time, talent and financial support to make WJFF stronger than ever. We welcome any questions the public may have and invite all members of the community to attend our board of trustees meetings.”

The WJFF Board of Trustees will meet on Wednesday, May 21 at 6:30 p.m, at the Town of Callicoon Town Hall at the corner of Legion Street and Willy Avenue in Jeffersonville. The CPB Inspector General’s report and notifications of penalty can be found at wjffradio.org.
