KOCT’s Board of Directors were on hand to answer questions and lead guests on tours of the station.  KOCT’s Station Manager Jacob Rush did a great job leading KOCT’s production team, interns and volunteers on the elaborate set-up of the studio, mobile studio and edit bays.   Mark your calendar for this annual event next April and thanks to everyone who attended.
