Who We Are

Message from the CEO

My service to WKRBC is not just a career; it is a mission. This mission has been part of my life since 1981 and has made me a better person.

Over the years, I have developed a passion for our donors as well as our staff. Through them and the examples they exhibit in everyday life, I have been able to see the best of individuals in many of life’s most difficult circumstances. They inspire me to always seek what is the best for my community. I have learned to live each day as a thank you for what I have been given.

Janet Howard,
Chief Executive Officer
