Ways to Connect

The KBBI Board of Directors is proud to announce the dedication and renaming of the principal on-air studio as the 'Gary Thomas Studio'. Gary served this community at Kachemak Emergency Services, as a member of the Homer Volunteer Fire Department, as editor and publisher of the Homer News and as volunteer host and auctioneer for decades worth of fundraising and advocacy events across the peninsula.

KBBI AM 890 is hosting an on-air remote ‘Concert on YOUR Lawn’ Fundraiser June 19th & 20th. This is a socially distant homage to our Concert On The Lawn days and an opportunity for us to celebrate our amazing listener-supporters. Throughout the two days you will hear the regular shows you love as well as live music, KBBI testimonies, and giveaways all culminating in the Concert on Your Lawn Event June 20th from 5 pm-9 pm with local musicians broadcasting from their homes to yours. Follow along on Facebook and Instagram for more updates.

In August the station celebrated 40 years on the air bringing you local and national news, emergency coverage, and the music and stories we all love. On October 11th and 12th we will host our Fall on-air membership drive.
