In light of recent state budget cuts, Unalaska Community Broadcasting is looking for volunteers.

Last month, Gov. Mike Dunleavy vetoed $2.7 million in state funding for public broadcasting.

General Manager Lauren Adams said KUCB Radio and Channel 8 Television are losing about $76,000.

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.
