Suicide Prevention

Suicide is a complex and tragic event that leaves a wake of devastation for families and communities. With over 41,000 people a year dying by suicide it is currently the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. Fortunately there are organizations working to develop and implement strategies that combat this often preventable tragedy. With education about risk factors and conditions that contribute to suicide, individuals can assist with early interventions that are proven to save lives. Join host Prentiss Pemberton and Board member for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Kim Hancox, as they discuss Suicide Prevention.
HOST: Prentiss Pemberton

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 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!
