INFORMATION

 

NEW-The KIYU Black Friday Membership Drawings start at 1pm on Friday. Members will be eligible for weekend trips, gift cards, free gas, hoodies and more! Stay tuned and good luck!

 

Applications for the KIYU Board of Directors are now closed. However, KIYU is still looking for members to fill our Community Advisory Board. The CAB consists of community members who meet at least yearly to provide feedback on programming, guidance on policy decisions or assistance in fund raising. This board has an advisory role only and does not have governmental authority of KIYU. The input of the CAB is beneficial to KIYU as it is a link between community members and the radio station's management. We would like representation from any of the villages we serve. If you are interested in being a member of our Community Advisory Board, send us your letter of interest to office@kiyu.com or mail to P.O Box 165, Galena, AK. 99741. You can also call us at 1-800-478-5498 and we can give you more details. The CAB list will compiled on December 1st to be presented on December 2nd at our annual meeting.

KIYU BINGO is on the way. It's another way to support Community Radio and have fun at the same time. Stay tuned for details.

 

Get in the Holiday spirit in Galena and around the world. Our sister station Sasquatch 92.9 is now Christmas 92.9 and we will be spreading holiday cheer through Christmas. You can catch it in Galena on 92.9 or from anywhere at this stream.
