Programming/News

As a KBBI listener, you are connected to our surrounding communities because of the quality information on KBBI that bridges all of the communities we serve. The news department continues relationships with our neighboring communities including the Russian villages and across Kachemak Bay in Seldovia, Nanwalek and Port Graham.

KBBI posts the full audio of Homer City Council, Kenai Borough Assembly, and other community meetings that we are able to attend, on our web site. We also post broadcasts of weekly Coffee Table shows within a day of the original. 

 

Community

KBBI broadcast throughout the wee hours of the morning on January 23rd, 2018, updating us all on the Tsunami warning after the 7.9 earthquake shook the Gulf of Alaska. We are thankful for the support and partnership of local emergency responders, including local Fire, Police and government teams-- not to mention this amazing community of listeners for tuning in to KBBI, which we consider a reliable and possibly life-saving service during emergencies.

KBBI continues to be a media sponsor of the Kachemak Writer’s Conference. KBBI also sponsors Cook Inlet Keeper’s Electronic Recycling Event, and Salmonfest /Aftershock with on-air messaging.

KBBI is also proud to support Homer Youth Resource Guide, a resource for teens by teens.

Looking Forward

KBBI launched a Legacy Giving program. By naming KBBI in your will or trust, you'll help ensure that future generations can enjoy and cherish all that local public radio has to offer. KBBI is coming up on 40 years on-air and we anticipate fun and exciting times to come, while continuing to hone and improve our service and engagement within the community.
