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

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

In September, we focused on John Ryan, who was with the station during the summer of 2015. He sat down with KUCB's Zoë Sobel to discuss his decision to take time off from his job at KUOW in Seattle to work in Unalaska.

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.

In August, we focused on Annie Ropeik, who was with the station from 2013 to 2015. She spoke with KUCB's Zoë Sobel about making the move from the East Coast to Unalaska.

After a decade of collecting footage and interviews, KUCB will premiere its new documentary on June 13.

The film is called "Tanadgusim Adan Chiilulix: Revisiting the Lost Villages of the Aleutian Islands." It's about a project that brought Unangax̂ survivors of World War II back to the communities they were forced to leave during the war — and then never allowed to resettle.

KUCB's Laura Kraegel sat down with fellow reporter Zoë Sobel to learn more about the documentary inspired by the Lost Villages Project.

Unalaska's post office is back to full service.

This change comes almost two years after the U.S. Postal Service cut hours at the Unalaska branch due to "staffing shortages" and "reduced customer numbers."

Having hired new staff, post office officials say counter service is open for normal operations and package pickup Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except for an employee lunch break from 11 a.m. to noon.
