KAKN is a commercial FM Christian radio station with the main studio located in Naknek, Alaska (100.9). Translators are located in Dillingham (104.9), Egegik (103.9), and Manokotak (102.9). KAKN is the only Christian radio station available to people in the Naknek area.
Whereas weather often hinders access to villages, radio proves to be the perfect medium to reach into every camp, cabin, cannery, and home on the Alaskan wilderness. Our mission is to provide the Bristol Bay area and beyond with quality Christian programs, music, and Bible teaching.

KAKN has been broadcasting the Good News to Alaska’s Bristol Bay for over two decades. AFLC Home Missions assumed management of the radio station in August 2008. At that time, Pastor Brian Davidson accepted the call to serve as interim station manager. Summer 2010 Pastor Bob Lee accepted a call as full time station manager and missionary pastor in Naknek. His wife, Margaret, is a teacher in the local school.
A Unique Ministry to Fishermen
Fishing is an important industry in Naknek, especially during the summer months when commercial fishermen arrive from all over the world. The government makes use of KAKN to broadcast daily fishing announcements and regulations. These fishermen are required to tune into our Christian radio station in order to catch these government bulletins, and in between times, hear the Word of God.
KAKN Studio and Apartments
The KAKN tower reaches over 300 feet into the vast expanse stretching across the Alaska Peninsula; a literal beacon guiding the area’s pilots and a spiritual beacon radiating the light of Christ to a world in darkness.
The radio studio also houses three apartments for use by Home Missions staff and visitors. Currently the Crowells and Lees reside there. The apartments are simple and have been furnished in part by ladies in the Women’s Missionary Federation of the AFLC. Thank you, ladies! We have compiled an Alaska Hospitality Registry for those interested in sending a care package to the KAKN station and Alaska missionaries.
Please pray for Pastor Bob Lee as he manages the station and the outreach of KAKN.
