Bruin Radio is a weekly student-led and student-written news show produced by Brookings-Harbor High School staff, and supported by Curry Coast Community Radio.

Our students interview Curry County Commissioner candidate Jan Barbas. At the time of this episode, Mr. Barbas is one of the four declared candidates for Curry County Commissioner Position 1, currently held by Tom Huxley. Questions for Mr. Barbas were developed by a group of BHHS students with editing by BHHS Staff. Students reached out to citizen advisors in the community for some questions suggestions and ideas. Mr. Barbas was provided with a list of the questions five days prior to the interview and was given the option to decline to answer questions. Mr. Barbas did not decline to answer any of our listed questions.

At the time of this episode, three of the four declared candidates for Curry County Commissioner (Including Mr. Barbas) have responded to our requests for an interview.
