Tuesday on Alaska News Nightly:

New data from the FBI show that reports of crime nationally are generally on the
decline, but by most measures Alaska is bucking that trend. Plus: A popular new podcast called “Midnight Son” tells the story of a well known Alaska Native actor whose career was cut short when he was convicted of attempted murder.

Reports tonight from:

  • Zachariah Hughes and Nat Herz in Anchorage
  • Andrew Kitchenman in Juneau
  • Hope McKenney in Unalaska
  • Liz Ruskin in Washington, D.C.
  • Eric Stone in Ketchikan
