After being told innumerable times that maybe she asked too many questions, Anne Hillman decided to pursue a career in journalism. Her first radio job was at KDLG in Dillingham in 2007, and then she moved to KUCB in Unalaska where she worked for three years in both news and programming. For two years, until May 2014, she alternated between freelancing with APRN and other Alaskan media and working as a community radio journalism trainer in rural South Sudan. Her current position at Alaska Public Media is as the organization’s urban affairs reporter as part of the community affairs desk.
