Michael Fanelli

Statewide Morning News Host/Reporter

a portrait of a man outsideMichael is the statewide morning news host at Alaska Public Media, and he covers local and state economic trends as a reporter. (Catch his weekly Economic Report on Thursdays!)

He started in his current role in July 2022, shortly after relocating from Southern California via the gorgeous and gloriously-potholed Alaska Highway. Prior to that, he spent five years learning the ins and outs of public radio at LA station KCRW.

In his free time, Michael enjoys getting outside and exploring all that Alaska has to offer. He loves seeing moose and has to resist trying to pet them. He frequently marvels at the natural wonder of this magical state, and has never once complained about the record amounts of precipitation during his first winter here.
