HAMMOND – A veteran host of KSLU, Southeastern Louisiana University’s public radio station, has been named chairman of the board of Friends of Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB).
Rosa Dunn of Hammond, who has served as the host of KSLU’s radio talk show “Point of View” since 1988, will chair the fundraising arm of LPB throughout the next term.
Dunn will continue her work with KSLU and “Point of View” as she guides the Friends of LPB board. Board members help raise funds to purchase PBS programs for broadcast on stations throughout Louisiana.
On Sept. 23 at the LPB’s annual meeting, the installation ceremony honored several LPB volunteers for their efforts throughout the year and offered a sneak peek of Southeastern’s own Ken Burns’ acclaimed documentary “The National Park: America’s Best Idea.”
Local Friends of LPB board members include Donna Gay Anderson, director of Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts; Michael Holly of Holly and Smith Architects; and Kim Howse Zabbia, owner and director of the Art Station in Ponchatoula.
