Dear KBBI members:

I am writing to let you know that KBBI’s general manager, Dave Anderson, has informed the board of directors and staff that he plans to retire in April. The board has accepted Dave’s resignation with regret, and a search committee comprising members of the community, staff, and board will be formed to begin our work to find his successor. We will celebrate Dave’s service to KBBI at a special event in early spring.

The KBBI Board of Directors seeks a General Manager to lead KBBI into the future.
