We are community members and students who work together as Curry County Voices to produce government and education programs that can be watched on Charter Cable Channel 182 under a permit granted by the Curry County Board of Commissioners. We have an agreement with Brandt Media to assist us by training us in the use of equipment provided by Curry County and then assisting us in the use of that equipment to produce original government and education programming for cablecasting on Channel 182 and viewing on this website. Curry County Voices is a member of the Alliance for Community Media.
Curry County Voices is administered by The Gold Beach Rotary Foundation, Inc., a non-profit Oregon corporation having a letter determination from the Internal Revenue Service that it is a 501(c)(3) entity and that donations to it qualify for tax deduction.
We are guided and advised in this undertaking by an Advisory Council. All persons, firms, corporations, businesses, organizations, schools, institutions and other entities in Curry County who subscribe to our purposes and who support us by participation or with a donation of money, service or equipment are eligible for membership on the Council.
If you wish to join the Advisory Council, please fill out the membership form and email to email@example.com.
If you wish to assist in the production of programming, or have an idea for a new program, or wish to sponsor an existing program please contact Carl King at firstname.lastname@example.org.
