KUCB

During the month of December, KUCB is focusing our fundraising efforts on support for the KUCB newsroom.  We have a matching grant that will make your donations go further.

Thanks to the generosity of Alaska Airlines and RavnAir Alaska, we are able to offer a bonus for your holiday giving: for every $25 you donate, you get one entry into a drawing for a round trip system-wide Alaska Airlines plane ticket AND a roundtrip flight on Ravn. 

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're focusing 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.

In October, we focused on Greta Mart, who worked in the newsroom in 2015 and 2016.

She spoke with KUCB's Laura Kraegel about her experience, which started when General Manager Lauren Adams tapped her for a temporary gig.
