In August 2014, a group of accomplished and up-and-coming chefs representing 18 states (including Alaska) gathered in New Orleans to compete in the annual Great American Seafood Cook-Off. THE GREAT AMERICAN SEAFOOD COOK-OFF VII features highlights from the event which gives the chefs one hour to showcase their culinary talents in a dish using domestic seafood native to their home states. Then, a discriminating panel of judges comprised of an executive chef, a food magazine editor, a culinary-school teacher, and a representative from The James Beard Foundation sample the results and crown a winner. Tune in Sunday night at 7 on KUAC TV Channel 9.1, or GCI Channel 9 & GCI Channel 657 for HD.

Through March 4th, KUAC TV and FM satellites have been and will continue to be affected by sun outages. These outages occur when the satellite upon which our antenna is focused passes in front of the sun and the signal is lost in the noise. Please expect outages anywhere between 2 and 12 minutes and all services will resume as the signal returns. We thank you for your patience during this seasonal occurrence.
