About Us

Established in 1976, KRBD-FM is Ketchikan’s only public radio station. We are a non-profit organization owned by our members. The heart of the community radio station is its approximately 50 volunteers, who produce a variety of music shows that offer up everything from classical, jazz, folk, blues to rock. KRBD is a major source for local, state, national and world news and  local weather. We are proud to say that 36 percent of the station’s programming is dedicated to news and public affairs. We are also proud to say that 48% of KRBD’s funding is raised locally through membership, underwriting, and special events! We also adhere to the Public Media Code of Integrity 


Copies of Annual Financial Reports are available by calling KRBD at 907-225-9655.  KRBD is part of CoastAlaska, Inc, and our financial information can be found in the audited financial statements for CoastAlaska:
