WGBH Community Advisory Board


Established in 1978 by the WGBH Board of Trustees, the WGBH Community Advisory Board is one of the oldest and most active public broadcasting community advisory boards in the nation, and reflects the tremendous value WGBH places on the needs and interests of our community.

WGBH Community Advisory Board members come from a broad cross-section of WGBH’s viewers, listeners, and Web visitors. Although Community Advisory Board members play a solely advisory role, their valuable recommendations strengthen WGBH’s service to our community.
