Board of Directors

The broadcast license for KUOW was awarded to the University of Washington Board of Regents in 1951. Under an agreement, the station is managed by KUOW Puget Sound Public Radio, a private, nonprofit corporation established in 1999 and governed by the KUOW PSPR community board of directors.

The KUOW PSPR Board of Directors provides fiscal oversight and management of affairs, property, and interests, ensuring the organization meets its goals, steering the organization towards a sustainable future by providing insight for ethical governance and financial management practices. The KUOW PSPR board is comprised of 16-25 directors who serve for three terms, three years each.

Unless noted, All Meetings are being hosted in a hybrid format via Zoom virtually and at Rita Koontz Community Space- (1121 NE 45th St Ste 100, Seattle, WA 98105) in person.
