Hometown, Alaska: Liane Hansen

Liane Hansen, familiar from Weekend Edition Sunday, brings her friendly voice to our studio in Anchorage for a wide-ranging talk about NPR’s impact and development over the years, the inside story of how Weekend Edition is produced (including the puzzle segment with Will Shortz), and her own life story–including her decision to retire and travel on a farewell tour.

Friday night is your chance to meet Liane in person at UAA’s Wendy Williamson auditorium. Get your tickets now for the APRN Speaker Series and join us Friday afternoon for a special edition of Hometown, Alaska from 2:00 – 3:00 pm on KSKA FM 91.1.
