Zachariah Hughes reports on city & state politics, arts & culture, drugs, and military affairs in Anchorage and South Central Alaska. He got his start in radio as an intern at WNYC in New York. Then moved from Brooklyn to Nome in 2013 to work at KNOM Radio, covering everything from sled-dog races to subsistence hunting, traveling extensively in the region.
Zachariah’s work has appeared on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered,” “Morning Editions,” “On Point,” as well as “Marketplace,” “Here & Now,” and in The Guardian. He’s happy to take assignments, and even happier to get news tips, which are best sent via email.
In the fall of 2014, Zachariah joined Alaska Public Media after driving his Subaru up the ALCAN from New Haven, Connecticut, in just five-and-a-half days. A graduate of Harvard University, Zachariah has lived throughout the East Coast, from a tiny lobster island off the coast of Maine to a tiny New York City apartment, as well as overseas in Turkey and the Czech Republic.
