This week we meet Jen Stansel, 28, who is from Arizona but moved to Anchorage from Idaho.
“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.
Co-Host and Producer
Sarah Wilcox is a 4th generation Alaskan who grew up in Valdez, left the state for college and, like so many others, was drawn back by the mysterious pull of Alaska. She joined the New Arrivals team because she is fascinated by the stories of what brings such a variety of people to Anchorage, and she hopes to help capture and share this unique time in history. Sarah spends her days listening to stories in a different context as a medical social worker, and loves to play outside.
