Another Kuskokwim 300 Race in the Books

by Mike Martz on January 22, 2013

Once again the Kuskokwim 300 proved to be an unpredictable and exciting event and KYUK was proud to provide comprehensive race coverage all weekend from the moment the mushers left the start line on Friday night until they returned to the finish line KYUK’s team of reporters and announcers brought you all the action as it unfolded.

An event like the Kuskokwim 300 spotlights the importance and relevance of local public radio staffed by people who live in the community they serve.  I want to thank all our dedicated staff and volunteers for all their hard work keeping our listeners updated on the radio and on our website with the latest race information.  I especially want to thank our volunteers who worked behind the scenes keeping our staff supplied with delicious food throughout the weekend.

I also want to thank our underwriters for this year’s race.  The businesses that provided financial support,  goods or services include: Donlin Gold, Bethel Card Rental, the Bethel Native Corporation, the Valcarcie Law Office, Bethel Alaska PC, ID Variety, Sammy’s Market, Swanson’s Store, GCI and Corina’s Caselot.  Thank you all for your generous support.

We’ll be looking forward to next year’s race and improving on our coverage.

Thanks for your support of public radio in the Y/K Delta and when you file your PFD or even if you  have already filed consider making a Pick Click Give donation to KYUK.
