Our Spring Membership Drive, while still virtual for the most part, included some fun surprises and a return to form. Thanks to members like you, we met our $100,000 goal! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Many of our on-air pitchers still joined in via Zoom. Pictured, from top to bottom: Becky Meiers (far right,) Lauren Wild, Lauren Bell, Lily Wasserman, Bryan Lovett.

Sitka’s beloved Belly Meat played live, in studio, for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic started.

We were thrilled to welcome former reporters Ed Ronco and Emily Kwong back to the KCAW airwaves! Ed kicked off the drive with Kayla Boettcher on Monday, April 5th and Emily pitched our last ATC shift with Molly Blakey on Friday, April 10th!

In addition to Belly Meat’s live performance, we enjoyed special editions of Root Cellar, Aurora Borealis, Ridin’ for the Brand, Sitka Tells Tells, and Indigenous and Other Expressions!

Lakota Harden hosted a special edition of Indigenous and Other Expressions.

Happy Hour Spectacular!

The Happy Hour special you’ve come to know and love was particularly thrilling this pledge drive as we went into overtime and met our goal! Andrew Hames was joined by a long list of guests including brother Roger, mother Mary, and Mayor Steven Eisenbeisz!
