In honor of the Edmund Fitgerald the online scanner will be replaying "We're Holding Our Own" all day.

Originally broadcast in 1995, this documentary continues to be among the most requested programs broadcast on KUWS. Listen again, as KUWS Presents features this 2 and a half hour documentary uninterrupted.

Five years in the making, this documentary covers two expeditions to the site of the wreck and includes exclusive audio recordings of ship-to-shore radio transmissions between the Coast Guard and the Arthur M Anderson announcing that the Fitzgerald was missing and presumed sunk. The documentary also includes the last interview ever given by the Anderson's Captain, J.B. Cooper, who passed away in 1993.

"This documentary brings this most recent of Great Lakes tragedies to life with interviews from eyewitnesses to that night, expeditions to the site, and families of the crew still dealing with this great loss," said the documentary's creator Mike Simonson.

KUWS coverage of the loss of the Fitzgerald, including We Are Holding Our Own and other news stories, have received both regional and national awards.

"We are holding our own," were the last five words heard from the Fitzgerald only minutes before she disappeared.
