The Alaska Teen Media Institute gives teens a voice in their community by providing them with the tools and training needed to produce their own stories. The stories are then shared through a variety of media. The teens produce a radio show called, In Other News. The show airs on KNBA 90.3 FM at 4 p.m. the last Saturday of the month.
