Directors & Staff

KGEM is overseen by Community Media of the Foothills,  a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization based in the City of Monrovia, California. We started in the early 1980’s and have grown quite a bit since. In the structure of the organization the community takes top priority. Our members decide the election of our Board of Directors. The nine volunteers who make up the Board of Directors then set policy, the budget and hire the lead staff.

A Note from the Executive Director

Dear Monrovia Viewers,

Many other communities across the Southland have recently lost their community channels due to recent changes in the law. Yet KGEM continues to thrive thanks to the community that surrounds it. This can only continue with your help.

We need new members, volunteers and especially sponsorships/donations. We have several different member and sponsorship packages available for both businesses or members of the community. Please contact us to find out the best ways you can ensure KGEM remains a hub of the community. KGEM is our gem to treasure, don’t let its sparkle fade.

Call today at 626-357-4974 or email us at volunteer@kgem.tv.

Thank you,

Lance Mungia
Executive Director
