Zero state funds would go towards public broadcasting under the budget proposed by the state senate.
KYUK General Manager Shane Iverson says that such a cut would eliminate all the programs and services that residents of the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta have relied on for decades.
"So things like ARCS television, that would be eliminated. As far as radio, Talk of Alaska, Alaska News Nightly, Alaska Morning News, 360 North... I mean, these are some trademarks of what public broadcasting is in Alaska. This proposed budget would eliminate them."
