Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) is a group of people reasonably representative of the diverse needs and interests of the communities served by Rhode Island Public Radio. The CAB operates independently of the governing body and staff of RIPR and is intended to provide a vehicle for effective community input into the station’s governing body about station programming, community service, and impact on the community from the station’s major policy decisions. The role of the board is advisory in nature and does not have the power to exercise any control over the daily management or operation of the station.

The members of the Community Advisory Board are:

  • Antonieta Falconi
  • Annie Talbot
  • David Leach
  • Chad MacFarlane
  • Kristin Crane
  • Emily Steffian
  • Don Deignan
  • Alexandra Hahn
  • Dawn Robertson
  • Diana Kushner
