Thanks to all of our members who attended our Annual Meeting. Our membership elected Gabe Long, Jeff Bochart, Diane Sly and Deb Potter to the board.You can read about our current board here.
*All station required documents and audited annual reports for the last three years are available on the website under "about the station, reports and documents".
Lynn Canal Broadcasting extends our appreciation to the Juneau Community Foundation and the Douglas-Dornan Foundation, for their generous contribution to our archiving program. We are taking the old reel to reels from earlier days of KHNS and transferring to hard drive - recycling at its best.
We purchased a laptop and software and along with the support of Southeast Alaska Independent Living and the Alaska State Department of Vocational Rehabilitation have started in on our project. Thank you!!
KHNS 2013 Print donated by Alaskan Artist Katie Sevigny and underwritten by the Skagway Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Golden Circle Chapter of the Alaska Travel Industry Association. Many thanks to our generous donors.
At KHNS we are trying some new models for fundraising in an effort to make up for the shortfalls in Federal funding and the economic pressures our members may be feeling. Our goal is to streamline this process, lessen the time on air and reduce the amount of station funds and staff time spent. We thank you for working with us on this, it's an ongoing process that we are tweaking as we go along. Your feedback about what works is welcome and can be directed to Kay Clements at email@example.com.
Update: June 2012
We asked if you would prefer that we spend a shorter time on the air and some of you have already voted with your dollars - loud and clear. As you can see from our Temperature Guage, we raised over $6,000 from pre-pledges, a great place to start from. This drive is an important time to see if this new model of fundraising for KHNS has legs. it's also a great time to reflect on what KHNS means to you and why you feel it deserves your support. We've got lots of reasons we are happy to share with you but key among those reasons is that 4-5 days is a lot less painful than 7 so let's get'er done and go back to the great programming you know and love.

KHNS Update: April 2012
We made it through the winter with all the usual equipment challenges due to weather...record breaking, indeed. We survived the Bad Bear breaking into our transmitter shed, maintained the vigilance required to keep the satellite dishes free of snow and transmitting clearly, both for KHNS and ARCS and overall, in spite of the heavy snowfall, someone made it to the station and/or the transmitter site and the show went on. We thank you for your patience and your appreciation for the radio on those cold, dark nights.
We have lost our longtime News Director, Tara Bicknell, who decided to take a break from deadlines and news in a small town to stop and smell the roses. Tara has been a gem. Her strong work ethic and ability to keep a journalistic distance helped make the KHNS news a broadcast you could depend on. We will all miss her friendly and energetic presence. The good news is, we hired Margaret Friedenauer as our News Director and you can hear a conversation betwee Margaret and Tara on the April 5th newscast.
This last year we replaced some major equipment between Skagway and Haines, bought new computers for our offices, replaced the old news mixing board and beefed up our basketball remote equipment, all thanks to grants and help from the Municipality of Skagway, Haines Borough, The Chilkat Valley Community Foundation and the Rasmuson Foundation as well as Alaska Public Broadcasting, Inc. These were all special projects that now allow us to operate more efficiently and with more confidence.
Thank you for your ongoing help in keeping our radio station alive and well in the Lynn Canal.
