Community Forum: Blogs

The Internet has forever changed the way we communicate. Besides being a handy research tool, the Internet delivers fast and efficient global communications. It’s even changed the way journalists deliver breaking news. Web logs — blogs — are a tool of choice to present opinions to the world. Nellie Moore talks with progressive blogger, Philip Munger and KSKA’s own John Proffitt as they talk about blogs, how they’re affecting politics and society and how you can get started blogging, too.

Bede started her work with Alaska Public Media as a volunteer in 1979, and then the host of Morning Edition in 1980. In 1981 Bede became the Operations Director, and in 1989 she took her current position as FM Program Director. Bede recieved the Alaska Broadcasters Association Employee of the Year award in 1991.

Bede has always loved radio; after her first day of volunteering at KSKA she knew it’s where she wanted to be. A friend of Bede’s, Corky Merkel was a KSKA staff member and she invited Bede to come in to volunteer. Bede began helping Corky edit the program guide and then started volunteering on air Monday nights. That first summer in 1979, KSKA needed a vacation relief person for the on air staff. Bede made herself available to do anything they needed, so she could learn about radio from square one. Over thirty years later, Bede is still learning new things every day about her profession and the wonderful community she serves.
