KBRW’s mission “to provide a quality source of information, cultural programming and entertainment unique to the needs of the people of the North Slope, and to share with others as appropriate”.

We keep our listeners informed on local and regional events and activities through daily public service announcements, news coverage, live interviews and weekly programs from a variety of organizations, including health providers, education and local government services. We also provide live coverage of regular and special meetings for the Borough Assembly and City Council, as well as the School Board.

As a means to keep our station culturally relevant and assist in keeping the Inupiat language alive, KBRW has an Inupiaq language translator on staff to record important community information and announcements.
