KUAC TV’s name changes, mission remains the same


KUAC TV’s name changes, mission remains the sameEffective July 1, 2012 at 12:01 a.m., the public television signal to Juneau and Bethel and their translators will begin originating from KAKM in Anchorage. The AlaskaOne consortium will be discontinued.

KUAC TV in Fairbanks will continue to broadcast the same quality programming with the same program schedule to viewers in the Interior, with the name of the public television service in the Interior changing back to the original KUAC TV.

Although the name changes, KUAC TV’s mission of the past 40 years – to create television programming that is thought-provoking, trustworthy and life-changing – remains the same. KUAC will continue to provide all four digital channels, KUAC TV, WORLD, Create, and UAFTV.

Viewers in Southeast Alaska and the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta will receive a letter from KUAC General Manager Keith Martin explaining these changes. We wish to thank all our dedicated and supportive viewers for allowing KUAC – a service of the University of Alaska Fairbanks – to bring you high-quality public broadcasting for the last 17 years!
