Now it’s time for our weekly trip around the state for 300 villages. We’ll take a peek into life in Beaver, an Interior village on the Yukon River with a history going back to commercial whaling days, and then we’ll visit with Moose Pass, a railroad town on the Seward Highway.
That was Derek Murray in Beaver and Dawn Campbell in Moose Pass. 300 villages is AK’s attempt to put every community in Alaska on the radio.
Thanks for listening to AK this week. We had help this week from Diana Saverin on the mail boat and Ellen Lockyer in Anchorage.
APTI Reporter-Producer Ellen Lockyer started her radio career in the late 1980s, after a stint at bush Alaska weekly newspapers, the Copper Valley Views and the Cordova Times. When the Exxon Valdez ran aground in Prince William Sound, Valdez Public Radio station KCHU needed a reporter, and Ellen picked up the microphone.
Since then, she has literally traveled the length of the state, from Attu to Eagle and from Barrow to Juneau, covering Alaska stories on the ground for the AK show, Alaska News Nightly, the Alaska Morning News and for Anchorage public radio station, KSKA
