If you are a collage student from any community within the KYUK listening area in the Yukon/Kuskokwim Delta or Bethel apply now for the Alexie Isaac Memorial Scholarship. If you know a college student from the YK Delta or Bethel encourage him or her to apply now. College is expensive and the Alexie Isaac scholarship can help you pay for school.
Once again this year, thanks to the generosity of our listeners during our Spring Fund Drive, we are able to offer three $1,000 scholarships. That means three students will be eligible to receive a $1,000 for their school year’s expenses.
The Bethel Broadcasting Inc board of directors makes the selections of scholarship winners at the September board meeting.
The deadline to apply is August 1st and while that date may seem far away it’s only about four months from now and the time will fly by fast.
Information and application forms can be found on the Scholarship page of the KYUK website. The application forms can also be requested by calling 543-3131 between 8am and 5pm Monday through Friday.
Don’t delay, apply today!

We’re please to introduce Daysha Eaton as KYUK’s news director, taking over new room management and news reporting from Angela Denning-Barnes who moved to KFSK public radio in Petersburg in February. Daysha joined the news team of Ben Matheson, Charles Enoch and Julia Jimmie on March 24th. Regular news listeners have already heard her reporting on our noon news.
Daysha hails from the Port Townsend area of Washington State. She had news broadcasting experience in the Pacific Northwest and then spent one year as a news reporter at KDLG Dillingham and two years as a reporter for KSKA and the Alaska Public Radio Network (APRN) in Anchorage. We’re excited to have her here to bring her reporting experience to the issues and topics of interest to all our listeners throughout the YK Delta.
We also want to welcome Charles Enoch to our news team. Charles is from Tuntutuliak and started work as Yup’ik news reporter in mid February. He’s quickly learning the skills and techniques of news reporting in both Yup’ik and English languages. He’s already had two stories go statewide on APRN, one on the Bethel Winter House and one on the Manakotok VPSPO memorial.
Welcome to both Daysha and Charles.
