KRNN’s sister station, KTOO News, is looking for some volunteer sound editors who can help us prepare recorded audio for broadcast. Some voicework will be involved. Familiarity with computers and a good ear for production is needed, but we’ll train you on everything else. If you’re interested, send us a note and we’ll get back to you. Please put “Volunteering” in the subject line. Thanks!
- The Sitka Sound sac roe herring fishery is in full swing. In less than a week, the fleet has caught over half of its quota. And while most crew members work on the water, spotter pilots fish for herring from the sky.
- A lot of eyes were on the U.S. House today, but, as Republican factions shuttled to the White House to negotiate, it was a day of waiting for most.
- Gov. Walker’s legislation creates a new definition for independent contractors that would determine whether employers have to pay to insure against on-the-job injuries.
- Gone are the days of throwing explosives from the air. AELP's avalanche crews trigger slides using a Daisybell, dangling about 150 feet from a helicopter. This is a cheaper -- and safer -- solution.
