Off Mic: Signal problems resolved

The problems that affected All Things Considered last night plagued programming today that included NPR’s Morning Edition and Day to Day . The equipment that caused the problem was located and adjusted and, by 10:00a.m., we were back on our regular Tuesday lineup. Thanks for letting us know you appreciated the updates and the classical music this morning. We are glad to be back on schedule.

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.
