Koahnic Broadcast Corporation has created a web-streaming component to add to its broadcasting operations, and is bringing in James Dommek Jr. to spearhead the new project. Dommek’s new role will include managing and conceptualizing a new youth radio stream that will offer music, culture and news content to youth across Alaska.
