Kuskokwim Public Broadcasting Corporation, KSKO, first went on air July 1, 1981, as an AM station at 870. With budget cuts, KSKO had to find ways to save money and still move forward with the radio station. In 2015 KSKO removed 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 reach to provide community listening needs. We stick to our schedule, and you can count on our announcers to bring you current messages, and weather, as well as a variety of music. We have a variety of NPR programming / NPR special news announcements, as well as local news and information.
