Message from the Immediate Past Chairman of the Board

Dick Hattershire

On behalf of our Board let me welcome you to the excitement of Discover Classical. As Chairman of the Board, I can’t tell you how rewarding it is serve the station and the community with such an extraordinary group of committed, engaged members. We take our governance role seriously, and our members are generous in their support, but more than that they’re active participants in the life of the station. That level of involvement will be critical to our success as we work to significantly add value to our programming and implement plans to significantly expand the station’s reach over the next years. As cliche as it may sound...stay tuned.

Dick Hattershire, Immediate Past Chairman of the Board
