Vic Bedoian, Board Vice-President
For the last six years, Vic Bedoian has been executive director of the Fresno Free College Foundation and general manager/program director of listener-sponsored radio station KFCF, an independently owned affiliate of Pacifica station KPFA in Berkeley, California.
Vic’s life in radio began in 1971 when he began volunteering at KPFA doing various tasks from the menial to the sublime in a variety of departments, including drama and literature, news and public affairs, and subscriptions. Over the years he has produced many radio documentaries and series. He received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for a year-long, weekly series on American history and contemporary life, and from the California Council for the Humanities for documentaries on the oral history of Northern California’s Pomo Indians.
In the late-80s he moved from the Bay Area to Fresno and operated his family’s vineyard for ten years. During that time, he was involved with environmental and natural resource programming projects for KFCF and KPFA, and produced a monthly program on KFCF about nature and culture in the San Joaquin bio-region.
Vic graduated from the University of California at Berkeley in 1966 with a bachelor of arts in physics.
