Tube City Community Media Inc., the non-profit publisher of The Tube City Almanac and operator of WMCK.FM radio, is accepting applications from people interested in serving on its board of directors for 2019-2020.

Applications will be considered at the board's next meeting, scheduled for Aug. 4, and should be received by Aug. 1.

Nominees should be at least 18 years old, be able to pass a background check, and live within a nine-mile radius of McKeesport. Most importantly, they should have a sincere interest in local, non-profit media and in promoting the McKeesport area via the Internet, radio and other means.

The board has only one regular meeting per year, but board members are asked for advice and help as necessary. The directors are unpaid volunteers.

To apply, send a resume along with a brief written explanation of why you would like to serve. Applications may be emailed to tubecitytiger@gmail.com, or sent to Tube City Community Media Inc., P.O. Box 94, McKeesport, PA 15134.
