About Us

Kuskokwim Public Broadcasting Corporation first went on air July 1, 1981 as KSKO, then at AM 870.  With budget cuts, KSKO had to find ways to save money and still move forward with the radio station. In 2015 KSKO accomplished that goal by removing their generator and made the transition from AM to FM. KSKO is still a Public Radio station which means we are commercial free and here for your listening needs. 

Kuskokwim Public Broadcasting Corporation’s mission is to meet the diverse specialized, informational and cultural needs of the listening area. This mission drives our staff and board as we strive to provide the wants and needs of the communities we serve. You can count on KSKO staff and volunteers to bring you current weather and messages/community announcements along with a wide variety of music.  We also offer NPR News updates, talk/information and public radio programming to keep you in tune with the world.
