Curry County Sheriff John WardThis is the inaugural show for “Curry Matters” on Curry Coast Community Radio, KCIW. It’s community radio. I, your host Jan Barbas, have never done anything like this before. I didn’t ask my guest, Curry County Sheriff John Ward if he had ever done a radio show before, but my guess is that while he has probably been interviewed by local reporters when a story breaks, this is likely his first experience with an extended interview for radio or podcast. This is community. Real people, real challenges, the real faces of Curry taking a moment out to share with you, our listeners.

At Curry Matters we’ll try to bring you the news makers in Curry County in their own voice. It’s a chance to get a little deeper and more personal look at the issues we face in our community.

I’d like to thank Sheriff Ward for taking the time to do this first show, and I’d to thank our listeners for taking their time as well. We’d love to hear from you. Please let us know how you liked the show, who you’d like hear on a future show and what issues you’d like to know more about. You may leave comment in the 3C Radio General Discussion forum section of our website or on our Facebook page.
