Public radio station KOTZ served Eskimo communities spread along the rivers and coasts of northwest Alaska. This radio’s studios were tucked into the schoolhouse in the village of Kotzebue, a small cluster of buildings huddled on gravel spit jutting into the Chukchi Sea.

KOTZ FM generates unique ideas, and to believe creatively about how to communicate them to audiences. Most public radio stations were planned to be alternatives to commercial radio, playing classical music, folk music and jazz, music genres not typically linked with a mass audience. KOTZ FM is different, this station officially a public radio station with no advertising support, didn’t fit the model. DJ and news providers of this radio have excellent presentation skills. They served all the listeners in Northwest Alaska, and they sounded more like a commercial station with top 40 and country music.
