49 Voices: Tribute to Annie Feidt

This week on 49 Voices, we’re doing something a little different. Our long-time editor and producer Annie Feidt will be leaving Alaska News Nightly to manage Alaska’s new Regional Journalism Collaborative focused on energy and environment. While she’ll still be heavily involved in making statewide news, she won’t be the one editing frazzled reporters, wrangling deadlines, and making sure there’s a show to air every night. As our editor she may very well be furious that we changed to tonight’s program without her permission, but we thought it was important to let her know how much she’ll be missed.
