Visiting with Malcolm and Cindy Roberts

Alaska activists Malcolm and Cindy Roberts have launched their memoir, MAGIC MOMENTS Battles Worth Fighting and Joys Worth Celebrating. Charles Wohlforth will explore 45 years of history that spans Wally Hickel years as Secretary of the Interior including his efforts to convince Congress to approve the oil pipeline and the Alaska Native Claims Settlement; Hickel’s role in reducing the harvest of the world’s great whales; Hickel’s accomplishments as Alaska Governor 1990-94; and the international Community of Friends of Anchorage that grew out of the bid to host the Winter Olympics and the beginning of Bridge Builders of Anchorage. Cindy has stories shared in the memoir that span her (unexpected) job as Mrs. America 1978 to the 2012 publication of CRACKING THE CODE – a glossary clarifying the terms of the Alaska natural gas pipeline discussion. They both have stories about their chance meeting and making Alaska home for their ideas and family.

Eric Bork, or you can just call him “Bork” because everybody else does, is the Audio Media Content Producer for KSKA-FM. He produces and edits episodes of Outdoor Explorer, Addressing Alaskans, as well as a few other programs. He also maintains the web posts for those shows and many others on alaskapublic.org. You can sometimes hear him filling in for Morning Edition or find him operating the sound board for any of the live broadcast programs. After escaping the Detroit area when he was 18, Bork made it up to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where he earned a degree in Communications/Radio Broadcasting from Northern Michigan University. He spent time managing the college radio station, working for the local NPR affiliate and then in top 40 radio in Michigan before coming to Alaska to work his first few summers. After then moving to Chicago, it only took five years to convince him to move back to Alaska in 2010. When not involved in great radio programming he’s probably riding a bicycle, thinking about riding bicycles, dreaming about bikes, reading a book or planning the next place he’ll travel to. Only two continents left to conquer!
