KUCB

KUCB's partnership with ProPublica began Sept. 1. The investigative journalism nonprofit selected KUCB's former reporter, Zoë Sobel, to join its Local Reporting Network, along with five other public radio station reporters across the country.

ProPublica is partnering with KUCB and CoastAlaska to boost investigative reporting in the Aleutians. The investigative journalism nonprofit announced Friday that six public radio station reporters are joining its Local Reporting Network. The partnership begins September 1 and will last one year. 

 

KUCB’s partnership with ProPublica will allow us to bring back our former reporter, Zoë Sobel. The program will cover Sobel’s salary and benefits for the year, through funding from the Abrams Foundation.

Over 100 people came out to tee off in the tundra last weekend in Unalaska's annual golf tournament. The pop-up golf course featured nine holes in scenic Pyramid Valley and took place over the span of two days.

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