Climate change in Alaska

On this show, in celebration of Earth Day, we hear from several guests about climate change and its impact on the sports and recreational activities that so many of us love. Our guests on this show are Tim Hinterberer, Toby Schwoerer, Rosie Brennan, and Dave Atcheson. Tim is a volunteer with the Citizen’s Climate Lobby. Toby is an accomplished cross-country skier and a research assistant at the International Arctic Research Center. Rosie is a two-time Olympic cross country skier, and Dave is an author, a hunter, and sport fisher. We cover how the climate in Alaska is changing, what these changes mean for all Alaskans, and what we as individuals can do to help combat climate change.

Eric Bork, or you can just call him “Bork” because everybody else does, is the FM Operations Manager for KSKA-FM. He oversees the day-to-day operations of the FM broadcast. He produces and edits episodes of Outdoor Explorer, the Alaska-focused outdoors program. He also maintains the web posts for that show. You may have heard him filling in for Morning Edition or hosting All Things Considered and can still find him operating the soundboard for any of the live broadcast programs.

After escaping the Detroit area when he was 18, Bork made it up to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where he earned a degree in Communications/Radio Broadcasting from Northern Michigan University. He spent time managing the college radio station, working for the local NPR affiliate, and then in top 40 radio in Michigan before coming to Alaska to work his first few summers. After then moving to Chicago, it only took five years to convince him to move back to Alaska in 2010. When not involved in great radio programming he’s probably riding a bicycle, thinking about riding bicycles, dreaming about bikes, reading a book, or planning the next place he’ll travel to. Only two continents left to conquer!
