This week we meet Leanna Hefner, 35, who is originally from New Mexico.
“New Arrivals” is Alaska Public Media’s profiles of people who recently moved to Anchorage, one of the most diverse cities in the world. Every Tuesday, we meet a New Arrival from another country, another state, or another part of Alaska. The stories air at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesdays during Morning Edition here on KSKA, Alaska Public Media.
Host and Producer
Independent producer Vikram Patel makes New Arrivals because he likes talking to people, but especially new people. (No offense, friends and family!) When he isn’t interviewing newcomers to Anchorage, Vikram helps produce local storytelling program Arctic Entries and works his day job at Parks & Rec which, he claims, is exactly like the TV show.
