In an effort to better serve our viewers and not impact viewing for PBS NewsHour, KUAC will be making one last adjustment to the broadcast of Alaska Weather and will begin broadcasting the live feed of Alaska Weather at 5:30 p.m. on KUAC TV 9.4, GCI Channel 6 and Dish Network Channel 14.
We have successfully upgraded the FM translator, but work to restore the Healy TV service has been delayed. The KUAC engineering department is working on a solution, but it may be be the week of Oct. 31 or Nov. 7 before we can continue, weather conditions permitting.
Thank you for your patience as we work to upgrade your signals. More information about KUAC’s suite of digital television offerings can be found at http://kuac.org/kuac-tv/tv-schedule/.
We will make an announcement when we are 100% sure it is working.
With the sudden passing of John McLaughlin of The Mclaughlin Group, producers have retired the longstanding program which aired for more than three decades. KUAC will replace the program with Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, a series that provides in-depth coverage of the top religion and ethics stories of the week as well as religious and ethical perspectives on domestic and foreign events and the arts. Hosted by veteran journalist Bob Abernethy, the series brings viewers breaking news through live and taped reports filed by a team of correspondents in the field and interviews with prominent newsmakers.
Our condolences go to the family and friends of John McLaughlin who brought our TV family many years of thought-provoking content.
