FAIRBANKS- A radio station focusing on interior Alaska Native issues is set to launch in Fairbanks.
KRFF-FM is finishing final paperwork with the Federal Communications Commission and expects to broadcast soon.
The station is sponsored by the nonprofit Athabascan Fiddlers Association and was eight years in the making.
KRFF will be staffed by volunteers. It will Athabascan stories, music and indigenous language programs.
Fiddlers Association general manager Ann Fears says Anchorage-based Kohanic Broadcast Corp. will allow KRFF to use its feed for at least six months when local programming isn't available.
Gaming money from the association is backing the station.
