public radio

Alaska’s governor announced a 182-line item veto to the state operating budget. Those cuts include more than $2 million for public radio and $600,000 for public television.

Gov. Mike Dunleavy spoke about his cuts to public radio and television during a June 28 news conference in Juneau.

A proposed budget by Alaska’s governor zeroes out funding for public broadcasting, including more than a half-million dollars to fund public radio in rural parts of the state.

Rural public radio stations stand to lose about $600,000 under Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s proposed budget.
