What is the Community Advisory Board?

The purpose of Lakeshore Public Media’s Community Advisory Board (CAB) is to provide a vehicle for the station to receive invaluable input from our viewers and listeners out in the community about our programming as well as our community service efforts. The CAB meets every other month at the Merrillville branch of the Lake County Public Library system. To find out when the next meeting is, email or call 800-276-5656.

CAB members can provide specific feedback about programming on either Lakeshore PBS or Lakeshore Public Radio by completing this Programming Evaluation Form.

Lakeshore Public Media seeks to be the recognized media resource for citizens of all ages to experience lifelong learning, celebrate human diversity, and engage in civic concerns – all to enrich the lives in communities we serve. We cannot do this without your support.
