The mission of KYUK:
We are dedicated to serving the rural Alaska and Alaska Native population of our region and responding to issues that affect the people of the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. Our mission is to educate, stimulate and inform as well as provide cultural enrichment, entertainment, and opportunity for public access and language maintenance for cultural survival.

Following KYUK’s release of video of an officer-involved shooting in Bethel, there has been some discussion online and some people have asked why KYUK released the video.

A big part of KYUK public radio’s mission is “responding to issues that affect the people of the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta.” Certainly, an officer-involved shooting that took place in a populated neighborhood is such an issue.

We released video of the officer-involved shooting that took place on Friday, August 15th, after much deliberation of the possible impact to the community we serve, the police officers, and to the person who was shot.
In the end, we decided to release the video because we were in a position to provide a window on the facts in a neutral way that allows those viewing the recording to make their own judgments, based on the most complete information available to date.

In addition, we reached out to an immediate family member of the man who was shot and who approved of the release.

KYUK and all media organizations are in a new world where delivering raw information online, sometimes even before it is written and produced for radio or TV, is now possible. In this case, we simultaneously released a news story to accompany the video with as much clarifying information as possible to help people make sense of the situation which had occurred.

KYUK’s news department takes very seriously its obligation to provide accurate information to our listeners and followers in the community of Bethel, the Y-K Delta and beyond. We hope the information provided through our radio and online stories as well as other content, including the video, helps people make sense of the situation that has occurred and assists them in making informed decisions about the current state and future of our community.
