News-Miner is KUAC’s Featured Sponsor for July
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner has been serving Interior Alaska since 1903. What began as the Weekly Fairbanks News morphed through several other names, to eventually become the News-Miner.
The newspaper changed hands, publishers and locations several times until 1950 when C.W. “Bill” Snedden took over as owner and publisher. Under his direction, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner was instrumental in the statehood movement which took place in the late 1950s.
In 2016, the News-Miner was purchased by the Helen E. Snedden Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Today the News-Miner continues to offer its readers up-to-the-minute news coverage, along with entertaining features and special sections, including Sunday’s AK Tickets and Thursday’s Lat 65. It also publishes a monthly health magazine, “Alaska Pulse,” and sponsors reader interactions such as the outhouse photography contest and the Readers’ Choice awards. The “Kid Scoop News” is used in classrooms and homes to promote childhood literacy.
The newspaper partners with KUAC FM on news reporting and generously sponsors the KUAC Kids Club birthday announcements on KUAC FM and KUAC TV. News-Miner reporters normally do a mid-day report on KUAC FM but that is on hiatus due to the pandemic. The News-Miner and KUAC share the mission of educating, informing and entertaining the public.
