Station Highlights

Whereas, Raven Radio rocks!

The Sitka Assembly recognized Raven Radio’s 30th anniversary this Tuesday (6-26-12) with an official proclamation. The document cites the station’s news services to Sitka and surrounding communities, live assembly broadcasts, and “variety of music styles and entertainment for all Sitkans.” General manager Ken Fate accepted the proclamation on behalf of the station, along with his three predecessors. In his remarks, Fate outlined all that the station has accomplished for Sitka over the past three decades — and all the accomplishments to come!
