The City of Steamboat Springs is launching a new monthly radio talk show, City Limits, on Steamboat Radio’s KKSB-105.7FM, airing the first Monday of every month starting April 2, 2018.
“Public input is extremely valuable and sought after from council and city staff,” said City Manager Gary Suiter. “The new radio show is another means to inform residents in a more in-depth way early in the decision-making process on topics council is addressing currently or in the near future.”
An one-hour radio show will air monthly featuring up to two council members, the city manager and occasional special guests tackling a variety of subjects in front of the city. The show will be taped the last Thursday of the month and aired in prime time on KKSB (105.7FM) at 5pm the first Monday of every month.
In addition, City Limits will run at 6am on Sundays on Steamboat Radio sister stations on the following schedule:
- First Sunday of every month on KEZZ (Easy 94.1FM)
- Second Sunday of every month on KBCR (Big Country 96.9FM)
- Third Sunday of every month on KTYV (Sports on FM 98.9FM)
- Fourth Sunday of the every month on KCOQ (The River 100.5FM)
The first show will discuss Council Goals, the West Steamboat Neighborhood and Fiscal Sustainability. Future segments will cover current community topics, issues facing the city or focus on a city council goal. These monthly discussions can range from community housing options to defining a downtown vision to fiscal sustainability that spans long-term revenue diversification, emergency services, Howelsen Hill and city services.
One of Council’s goals is to increase community engagement in a way that grows community awareness, promotes transparency, encourages educational opportunities and nurtures civic engagement. The radio show joins a new monthly column in both the Valley Voice and Steamboat Pilot & Today written by individual councilors.
