Arts & Culture

Arts and culture reporting on news and community topics. Arts and culture coverage is occasionally submitted by community members.

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 November, we focused on Zoë Sobel, who worked in the newsroom from 2016 to 2019. She told KUCB's Laura Kraegel about her experience at the radio station.

Thanks to the generosity of supporters near and far, KUCB's 2019 Pledge Drive broke all of the station's previous fundraising records.  

The fall membership event raised more than $43,000 at a time when the station needs local support more than ever, due to the elimination of state funding. In addition to the community's tremendous contributions, the Oct. 4 fundraiser was also memorable for a lengthy and unexpected power outage, which interrupted the on-air drive for about four hours.

The Unalaska Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA®) to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” The NFPA has been the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years, and the campaign works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.
