Fairbanks, Alaska (KINY) - Public broadcasting took a hit Friday under Gov. Mike Dunleavy, who vetoed more than $2 million in broadcasting funds.
According to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, the vetoes — $46,700 to the Alaska Public Broadcasting Commission, $633,300 to public television broadcasting and $2 million to public radio broadcasting — came as part of the governor's 182-line item vetoes to the fiscal 2020 state operating budget.
In Fairbanks, Dunleavy's veto will cost KUAC-FM $77,239 and KUAC-TV $78,300. That's how much the Fairbanks radio and TV station were allocated for fiscal 2020 under the state's funding of public broadcasting.
Elsewhere in the state, television stations KTOO in Juneau, KYUK in Bethel and KAKM in Anchorage each lose $78,300; among radio stations, KIYU in Galena loses $75,427; KOTZ in Kotzebue loses $80,484; and KCHU in Valdez loses $77,780.
