KRBD strives to inform, educate, entertain, and engage our listeners through national, state, and local news broadcasts, with a variety of national shows that not only entertain, but educate, as well as an eclectic mix of locally produced music shows. We air weekly community interviews during Morning Edition covering a wide range of topics from safety measures to child care, public health concerns to gardening, to events that the public can attend or how they can volunteer their time and skills. Our local City Council meetings, Borough Assembly meetings and school board meeting are covered. During election season we broadcast candidate forums and open our phones so that community members can call in with their questions. All this is broadcast on the air, featured on our website, offered on Facebook and Twitter, and streamed from our website.

KRBD serves the community of Ketchikan, the Village of Saxman, the community of Metlakatla on Annette Island, and the communities of Craig, Klawock, Thorne Bay, Hydaburg, and Hollis on Prince of Wales Island.
