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.



This Saturday, Unalaska is hosting the second annual Bering Sea Women's Conference.

Organizer Beatriz Dietrick said the event is about bringing women together to share their stories.

Dietrick sat down with KUCB's Hope McKenney to explain.

Unalaska's cross country team had another great weekend of racing. The young Raider team traveled to the state preview race last weekend at Bartlett High School in Anchorage.

The race is the first look at the course where the state championship will be run in October, attended predominantly by the larger 4A schools. The boys placed 12th, beating out three of the larger schools in the state.

This month's episode of Happy Healthy Unalaska discusses the stigma of addiction. 

Host M. Lynn Crane was joined by Delta Bedard, a behavioral health clinician at the Oonalaska Wellness Center. 

They discussed how the stigma attached to addiction often prevents those who are suffering from seeking help, while sharing information about the resources available for overcoming that stigma.
