Name of creator
The Trent University Broadcast Board Committee was begun in 1968. It was designed as a joint Senate-Congress Committee comprised of three students and three faculty members. The Board was responsible for the Trent University Radio Service. During the 1968-69 academic year, the radio service was run by thirty-five students and faculty and produced a series of programs which were broadcast on Sunday evenings through the facilities of CHEX-FM. The series was an experiment to determine if radio service from Trent would be adventageous for both the University and the Peterborough Community. The results of the experiment were a success and the Radio Service was expanded the following academic year to AM radio through CKPT-AM. The main function of the Broadcast Board was to approve annual budgets and gain approval for the budgets from the appropriate University bodies. The Board was also responsible for choosing the Radio Service Manager and selecting its own Chairman. The Broadcast Board was designed in a similar fashion to the Publication Board which monitors the University newspaper, "The Arthur".
This fonds was created and collected by David James, in his capacity as Chairman of the Trent University Broadcast Board, before the fonds was donated to the Trent University Archives.
Scope and content
This fonds consists of notes, correspondence, minutes, invoices, program logs, and reports of the Trent University Broadcast Board and Trent University Radio Service. Also included in the fonds are the Trent University Congress of Colleges minutes and budgets from 1969 to 1971.

RG16 was once used to collate all records from student groups and organizations. Other records (from the Trent Student Union, The Commoner, and the Trent Concurrent Education Student Association) were removed from this RG and accessioned as private records.
The records of the Broadcast Board were originally accessioned as 80-029.
