In a post-election shake-up, Unalaska's school board has a new member and a new president.

Carlos Tayag was sworn in Thursday after winning seat A with 86 percent of the vote in this month's local election.

"Thank you, I'm excited," said Tayag, taking an oath administered by Superintendent John Conwell.

Conwell praised Tayag's work as a youth programming coordinator for the city's Department of Parks, Culture, and Recreation — and recalled his first meeting with Tayag years ago.

This October, KUCB is celebrating its tenth anniversary as Unalaska's public radio station.

We grew from a telephone-transmitted repeater outlet to a full-service local radio station in 2008.

During our recent pledge drive, we commemorated that switch with help from our staff, board members, volunteer deejays, and listeners.

Below, you can listen to our radio story on the station's history and watch our video recap of the 2018 fundraiser.
