After arriving in Unalaska roughly three months ago, interim reporter Caroline Lester has returned back home to Boston.


KUCB's Maggie Nelson sat down with Lester to talk about her time on the island, reporting on the coronavirus pandemic, and her upcoming adventures in California.

''[An] old scuba diver enjoying watching from Pittsburgh, PA,'' ''Hi from Summerville Oregon,'' ''Enjoying this from Wisconsin,'' read a few of the comments on KUCB's live Facebook event for Dockside Discovery, which took place on Monday in Unalaska.

 The Aleutian Arts Council, the Museum of the Aleutians and KUCB recently coordinated the first ever AAC Virtual Coffeehouse, which also combined unique aspects from Community Arts Show and the Just Desserts event. 

This unique program showcased a variety of performers from near and far, and was sponsored by the Aleutian Arts Council, the Museum of the Aleutians, A Better Way Heating, OptimERA and Billie Jo Gehring and Roger Deffendall.

Earth Day: The Official Site

Wednesday marked the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. If you head to the official Earth Day 2020 website, you'll find a map of the world that looks like it's been, ironically, littered with confetti. There are pink, brown, green, blue, yellow, red, white, and grey dots covering much of the globe-at least the higher populated regions. And if you scan over the United States and Canada, you'll find a lonely green dot hovering over the Aleutian Island chain.
