Off Mic: Lieberman-Warner bill today on Talk of Alaska

The U.S Senate is about to decide whether to cap the nation’s carbon emissions and allow the trading of carbon credits. If passed, this bill will be the first national step toward a carbon economy. Alaska Public Radio Network‘s Steve Heimel and his guests will talk about the Lieberman-Warner bill today at 10:00a.m. on the statewide call-in program from APRN, Talk of Alaska. (The promo that has been running for “TOA” on AGIA was incorrect. Our apologies for the mistake.)

Bede started her work with Alaska Public Media as a volunteer in 1979, and then the host of Morning Edition in 1980. In 1981 Bede became the Operations Director, and in 1989 she took her current position as FM Program Director. Bede recieved the Alaska Broadcasters Association Employee of the Year award in 1991.

Bede has always loved radio; after her first day of volunteering at KSKA she knew it’s where she wanted to be. A friend of Bede’s, Corky Merkel was a KSKA staff member and she invited Bede to come in to volunteer. Bede began helping Corky edit the program guide and then started volunteering on air Monday nights. That first summer in 1979, KSKA needed a vacation relief person for the on air staff. Bede made herself available to do anything they needed, so she could learn about radio from square one. Over thirty years later, Bede is still learning new things every day about her profession and the wonderful community she serves.
