Dr. Vance Discussion on Recovery with Specialist Jennifer ONeal

This Friday August 7, 2020 from 6pm – 7pm on A Family Affair Dr. Vance will be discussing the nationally recognized 12 step recovery program for addiction with LMSW (Licensed Master Social Worker) & Addiction Specialist Jennifer ONeal. 

The program is part 2 of a multi-part series on addiction and recovery.  The 12 step program is not just for those suffering from addiction to alcohol or drugs as is commonly assumed, but it is for help with any form of addiction – tobacco, overeating, sex, pornography, gambling, shopping, etc.  So anyone who suffers from such problems or anyone who knows someone who suffering from addiction should tune it. 

Listeners can contact me directly at any time if they or their business, civic organization, or organization would like to be a guest on my show; or if you would like to suggest a future show topic or a future guest by emailing Doug Vance, PhD – host A Family Affair at – family.keos@gmail.com .

Who we are, and what we do

What is KEOS? KEOS 89.1 FM is the listener-sponsored, commercial-free, non-profit, people-powered, and locally supported, all-volunteer community radio for the Brazos Valley. KEOS 89.1 FM is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) licensed, non-commercial radio station, which began broadcasting on March 25, 1995. We are a non-profit educational and cultural organization with 501(c)3 tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service. We are proud to be completely locally supported by pledges, donations, underwriting, and volunteering. Our programming is produced by and for the people–on a volunteer basis. We believe in the power of community public radio. We provide different points of view as an alternative to mainstream media while encouraging direct participation from our community

Bryan ISD Schools remain closed

As Bryan ISD Schools remain closed this week due to COVID-19 BISD
Public Outreach Officer Justin Smith visited the KEOS studios to give
our listeners an update on the closure of Bryan ISD schools.  Mr.
Smith answered questions about testing, school meals, and plans to
continue instruction in the home while students are away from school.
BISD is featured every Thursday at 7:45 A.M. on The Oldies Jukebox,
but they will be on the air more often when they have updates.  For up

Thank You, Listeners

The KEOS Board of Directors and Management Team thanks all of our listeners and donors. We appreciate your comments about our programming, which we do take seriously. As an all-volunteer station with limited resources, we don’t always respond to your comments as quickly as we’d like to, but we do take the time to consider your comments as we make decisions about KEOS and its future. KEOS is committed to serving the under-served and under-represented in our community, as we strive to create and sustain a culture of respect.

If you have any questions or comments about KEOS’s programming or becoming a volunteer, please email the KEOS Management Team at mt@keos.org.

As we look forward to KEOS’s 25th birthday next year, we are very aware that we only exist because of the support and generosity of our listeners. Thank you for all that you do to make KEOS a part of our community!

Sincerely,

KEOS Board of Directors and KEOS Management Team
