LONG BEACH, Calif — Long Beach Community Television and Media Corporation (LBCTMC), the group spearheading efforts for a low powered FM Long Beach radio station, announced today that recently appointed director and Long Beach resident, Ashley Aguirre, will step in as interim President of the organization.
Aguirre, who currently works for Culture COLLiDE, (a boutique culture agency, festival creation company and travel magazine) hails from a world of music marketing. In the past she has worked for Fingerprints Music and Los Angeles based music promoter Spaceland Productions (The Echo, Echoplex, and The Regent).
“Ashley brings with her a high level of integrity, ethics, and organizing abilities. Her deeply rooted connections with diverse community organizations and businesses will provide an opportunity to strengthen LBCTMC’s connections with the same. We are looking forward to her balanced and all inclusive style of leadership with our nonprofit as well as the community radio project,” said longtime LBCTMC Secretary Judy Baker.
“My commitment to this project is rooted in the belief that the person who sees him/herself reflected in his/her community, is most likely to engage with that community. KLBP will always belong to the people of Long Beach. As a board, we want to ensure that this platform for community discussion, objective reporting, storytelling, and diverse music programming thrives for generations to come,” said Aguirre.
LBCTMC was granted a construction permit by the Federal Communications Commission to build a low power FM station last December and is expected to begin on-air broadcasts May 2017. The group formed in 2009 and previously helped form PADNET, the city’s public access digital network.
