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 February, we focused on Charles Homans, who ran the newsroom from 2006 to 2008 when the station was still known as KIAL.

Homans sat down with KUCB's Zoë Sobel in New York City to explain how he ended up in journalism.

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 January, we focused on Jim Paulin. He served as the first news director in the late 1990s when the radio station was still known as KIAL. 

Paulin sat down with KUCB's Laura Kraegel to reflect on his early career.

Commercial radio has come to Unalaska.

The Arizona-based Turquoise Broadcasting Company set up a transmitter in the Valley last week, launching two stations with programming from the Kenai Peninsula.

While Unalaska Community Broadcasting fought the arrival of for-profit radio, a number of island residents are excited about the new additions to local airwaves.

This story was produced by KUCB's newsroom, which is independent from Unalaska Community Broadcasting's management and board of directors.

This October, KUCB is celebrating its tenth anniversary as Unalaska's public radio station.

We grew from a telephone-transmitted repeater outlet to a full-service local radio station in 2008.

During our recent pledge drive, we commemorated that switch with help from our staff, board members, volunteer deejays, and listeners.

Below, you can listen to our radio story on the station's history and watch our video recap of the 2018 fundraiser.
