Unalaska Community Broadcasting has covered local news for the past 20 years.

To mark the newsroom's anniversary, KUCB is spending every Thursday of 2019 looking back at our former reporters and sharing some of their stories.

This April, we’re focusing on Alexandra Gutierrez, who led the newsroom between 2010 and 2012.

KUCB’s Zoë Sobel spoke with Gutierrez about her experience moving from the East Coast to Unalaska with no expectations.
