My Name is Jim Brown, a returning Staff member to the WPFW LSB. Our station seems to be actively improving it’s relationship with the Washington, DC metro communities. With over 40 years of broadcast media experience in radio, television and film, and working with many local community organizations, I will work the very small WPFW staff with promoting the station in new and old developing communities. The Washington metro area is booming with population growth.

For those communities that are not yet familiar with WPFW, I will devote more time assisting those community organizations with promoting their activities.
