CHON-FM and KRFF Fairbanks - Broadcast Partnership

    KRFF - Voice of Denali

    Aboriginal live radio broadcasting partnership starting in July 2018 between CHON-FM and KRFF-Fairbanks to promote, exchange and distribute indigenous language programs.

    NNBY (Northern Native Broadcasting Yukon) and CHON-FM have signed a program exchange and partnership agreement to distribute live aboriginal radio programming and content across the Yukon and Alaska borders.

    CHON-FM will broadcast weekly "Denali Jam" with host Ann Fears Wednesday's from 9:00 - 11:00am.

    KRFF will broadcast CHON-FM's Ben Charlie and his Saturday Gwitchin Request Show in Alaska 

    Voice of Denali was created by the Athabascan Fiddlers Association (AFA). The AFA is well known for organizing and carrying out the annual Fiddlers Festival in the fall in Fairbanks, Alaska. This celebration of Athabascan music, culture and traditions brings hundreds of Athabascan Natives and others from throughout Alaska’s Interior for four-days of cultural and musical celebration. Musicians come together from far and wide to play, and listen, to the best music around. While they are playing and listening they are also sharing, which helps the AFA meets its important mission.
