Frosty mornings and flocks of geese, ducks and swans winging their way south signal the end of another busy…and wet…summer. Here at KYUK we’ve also been busy and are looking forward to even busier times ahead.
Our news department continues to work diligently to report on the events and activities important to our listeners all across the Delta, from the fishery disaster to the Bethel airport runway reconstruction and everything in between.
After many months of hard work, our radio crew is nearly ready to launch new program schedules on both 640 AM and 90.3 FM. More music variety, new programming, including local shows, and more live DJ time on the air are coming up in early October. Stay tuned.
On the 15th of October we launch our Fall Radio Fundraiser. Our goal this year is $10,000. We’ll have a number of great thank you gifts available including a drawing for round trip tickets to Anchorage. There’ll be auctions and give aways and special guest appearances on the radio. Be sure to tune in, starting Monday October 15th on 640 AM.
October is also Permanent Fund Dividend time and the Pick Click Give program is a great way to share a portion of your PFD with non-profit organizations that are important to you. KYUK is on the Pick Click Give list again this year. If public media is important to you, I hope you will consider a donation to KYUK. For those who donated to us last year through Pick Click Give, thank you.
And thank you all for your continued support of public media for the Yukon/Kuskokwim Delta.
