As 2020 comes to an end, KUCB's newsroom takes a step back to reflect and share some of the most noteworthy news that was produced over the year.

The onset of the coronavirus pandemic in March brought the closure of schools and public facilities, forcing people into their homes and away from friends and family.

Despite that isolation and a string of local tragedies, moments of hope and unity stood out throughout the year in Unalaska.

Listen to some of those stories below. 

To find the full stories from this end-of-the-year special, visit our website at KUCB.org.
