Kuskokwim Public Broadcasting Corporation, KSKO, first went on air July 1, 1981 as 870 AM station. 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 community listening needs. You can count on our announcers to bring you current messages, weather as well as a variety of music. We have also offer a variety of NPR news/breaking news, information/talk and public radio programming as well as local news and information.
