Native Voice One Set to Launch
Public radio’s new Native network hits the airways July 1
Albuquerque, NM: Public radio gets a new radio network this week with the
July 1 kick-off of Native Voice One (NV1), an Albuquerque-based group
comprised primarily of Native American radio stations located across the United
States. NV1, a division of the Koahnic Broadcast Corporation (KBC), will
service affiliates with a 24x7 programming stream and reach listeners across the
world with streaming and on-demand audio via its on-line program service,
NV1.org. NV1 will replace AIROS (American Indian Radio on Satellite) as the
primary distributor of daily, weekly and special Native programming created by
independent producers, stations, and KBC.
The formation of NV1 was first announced in April at a Native Radio Summit
convened in Portland, OR with news of a significant start-up investment from
the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the support of NPR
Distribution which is providing a 24x7 satellite channel for NV1 programs. NV1 is
working with SchardtMEDIA to lay the organizational foundation of the new
network, including an on-going collaboration with PRI and Public Interactive to
provide service and support to Native stations and producers.
In April, NV1 brought on Burt Poley who will lead the initiative as NV1’s
Network Manager. Poley is a veteran of Native radio, having served as Manager
of Station and Audience Relations for KBC, station manager of Hopi Radio/KUYI
and in technical operations at KNAU in Flagstaff, AZ before stepping up to
his new post. KBC tapped Nola Daves Moses to serve as Program Manager of NV1.
Also a veteran of Native radio, she has worked behind the scenes primarily
on the technical side since 1997. Daves Moses has been an integral member of
the production team for both Native America Calling and National Native
News – two of Native radio’s flagship programs – and is co-founder of the
Albuquerque non-profit group, Southwest Stages.
NV1 has inherited from AIROS an existing affiliate base of approximately
35 public radio stations and a dozen producers. NV1 is developing new
policies designed to encourage production opportunities for a wide range of
producers and assure a strong and growing roster of content offerings. NV1 has
formed a unique partnership with the Center for Native American Public Radio
(CNAPR) and its advisory council who will help guide NV1. Over the course of the
year, NV1 will also upgrade the live stream which AIROS established as a
lifeline to Native listeners everywhere. In addition to the higher-quality
streaming, NV1 plans to offer an on-demand menu of programs to listeners across
the world, establishing a uniquely branded Native American radio presence on
the Internet.
“The support of our affiliates and partners in this new venture has been
tremendous,” said Jaclyn Sallee, President and CEO of KBC. “We‘re very
enthused at this opportunity to contribute in important new ways to building and
expanding the spirit and culture of Native America across the US and the world.”

In 2007, NV1 will look to reaching across to mainstream public radio
stations and listeners as it seeks new distribution outlets and develops a new
generation of Native-themed content serving a broader audience. Gregg McVicar,
owner of RadioCamp and host of a popular new daily music service,
UnderCurrents, co-produced with KBC, shares NV1’s desire to reach new listeners on more
stations. “AIROS gave us a good foothold in public media and now we have a
golden opportunity to take the enterprise up a great big notch,” said McVicar.
“We’re especially pleased that folks everywhere will be able to enjoy NV1
via a higher-quality Web stream.”
