This weekend’s story features Pippin Hum, who is combining his love for computers and games into school work. Spirit of Youth tells stories that allow adults around the state to hear positive and accurate portrayals of youth while counterbalancing negative stereotypes so often perpetuated by the media. Spirit of Youth’s radio series airs on virtually every public radio station in Alaska reaching nearly 100 communities and 94,000 listeners.

The budget situation at KUAC has been resolved for this fiscal year (July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015). This was accomplished by one full time position being laid off, the previously mentioned Development position going to half time, and two positions becoming vacant with a mandatory 90 day hold imposed by the University.
There will be no programming changes in the future barring additional budget cuts. APRN programming will no longer be impacted by the budget gap.
Despite this, KUAC needs your support now more than ever. Please consider giving a gift today to help ensure KUAC’s programming in the future HERE.
