NOTICE: - As part of a long upgrade process to increase our signal strength, listeners in Galena tuning in at our current 97.1FM frequency will soon have to switch to a new frequency. We will be changing to 88.1FM on Monday, February 15th. When the final upgrade is completed (hopefully by the end of the summer), we will increase the distance of the signal, so KIYU will be able to cover more of the river, and possibly eliminate the need for multiple village transmitters. Speaking of signals, we are aware of outages with our Ruby station. We are working on this issue and hope to have it resolved soon. We apologize for the disruption.

 

NOTICE:- We have added Yup'ik language programming to our signal on 96.1 in St. Mary's. Thanks to KCUK in Chevak and KYUK in Bethel in helping bring shows tailored for Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta communities. Click here to see the programs that we are airing in St. Mary's. (2/1)
