About KTOO News

KTOO has a mid-sized newsroom in a small market, which means we have robust reporting power and a strong presence and reputation in the community. 

Our editorial focus is a mix of stories of local and statewide importance. Our statewide reporters focus on state government, health care, energy & natural resource policy, Alaska’s economy, science and climate change. Our local reporters focus on city governance, housing & homelessness issues, tourism & other local economic drivers, social justice, early childhood education & schools, and Alaska Native culture and governance.

KTOO supports station-wide efforts to increase diversity and inclusion. The newsroom is committed to consciously seeking out voices, perspectives and stories not found in other outlets or in the media at all. We keep track of the gender and race and/or ethnicity of all our sources and strive to source our stories with diversity and inclusivity in mind. 

KTOO is honored to broadcast on Lingít Aaní. Our studios sit on fill that was once tideland, and is the home of the Áak’w Ḵwáan L’eeneidí, or Dog Salmon People. We respect the Lingít people for the care of this land and these waterways for thousands of years.

Our mission

Relying on voices, perspectives and stories historically underserved by news outlets, KTOO News provides information our community needs to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and our role in local, statewide and national issues and events.

    I believe every Alaskan has a right to timely information about their health and health systems, and their natural environment and its management. My goal is to report thoughtful stories that inform, inspire and quench the curiosity of listeners across the state.

    Social Justice | History

    Juneau is built on hidden and assumed layers of power and access, influencing how we interact with identity, with the law and with each other. I bring you stories of the gaps in access to power, and those who are working to close those gaps.
