The KUCB newsroom is taking a hiatus this month.

Staring next July 8, there will be no local newscasts for four weeks.

KUCB's Laura Kraegel sat down with General Manager Lauren Adams to discuss why the radio station is taking a news break — and what listeners should expect.

Every year, KUCB takes time to evaluate the station's programming with help from the community advisory board.

The group met last week and asked the station to increase volunteerism, update music and informational modules, and play "throwback" shows from former deejays. 

KUCB's Laura Kraegel sat down with General Manager Lauren Adams to hear more about the advisory board — and how she's planning to use their feedback.

It's a time of transition at Unalaska Community Broadcasting.

Reporter Zoë Sobel is leaving KUCB's newsroom Friday after more than three years with the radio station.

KUCB's Laura Kraegel asked Sobel what's next for her as a fellow in the Luce Scholars Program, which connects Americans with work experience in Asia.

Unalaska Community Broadcasting has covered local news for the past 20 years.

To mark the newsroom's anniversary, KUCB is spending every Thursday of 2019 looking back at our former reporters and sharing some of their stories.

In June, we focused on Lauren Rosenthal, who was with the station from 2012 to 2015. She spoke with KUCB's Laura Kraegel about her time on the island.

Over the last 10 years, the Lost Villages Project has helped Unangax̂ people to reconnect with the communities of Makushin, Kashega, Biorka, and Attu — none of which were resettled after the evacuation and Aleutian campaign of World War II.

Now, the project is being commemorated with a film premiere, a museum exhibit, and a reunion trip.
