Veterans Programming on 360 North!

All weekend long, 360 North will be commemorating the Memorial Day weekend with special programming focusing on the stories and contributions of America’s veterans. This is our way of thanking all the men and women who have faithfully served our country. Tune in to watch programs like the documentary series, “Lest They Be Forgotten”, a decade long effort to record stories from hundreds of veterans, and “When the War Got Personal”, a show about the 1944 sinking of the USS Hoel, which lost nearly three-quarters of its crew. Click here to see our schedule and don’t forget to thank any veterans you know this weekend!

Last Night of Our On Air Fundraiser!

Tonight is the last night of our on-air 360 North fundraiser! We're airing some of our most popular programs this week and asking viewers to call in or go online to support 360 North and ensure that we are able to continue bringing you programming that matters to Alaska.

Starting at 8 PM tonight, watch Westward in the 21st Century about the Steamer Portland. When it arrived at Schwabacher’s dock on the Seattle waterfront in 1897, burdened with her ton of Yukon gold, Campbell Church, Sr. was among the 100,000 men from every corner of the globe who caught the prospecting fever and set out for Chilkoot Pass.

Then at 9 PM it's all about salmon with The Great Age of Salmon!
This 30-minute documentary brings to life a fascinating era in the history of commercial fishing at the last frontier. Featuring film footage dating back to 1926 narrated by industry pioneer Stan Tarrant, The Great Age of Salmon is the story of the early fishing industry in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, and of the Pacific American Fisheries company of Bellingham.

Come join us as we wrap up the last night of our Spring Fundraiser!
