KCAW bid farewell this weekend to Rachel Waldholz, our summer intern from the University of California Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. In her 10 weeks in Sitka, Rachel covered everything from river restorations to health care reform to social safety nets for youth. Off-the-air, she’s been an outstanding colleague and a wonderful presence in our newsroom and station. Thank you, Rachel, for your hard work this summer.
Thank you, Rachel!
The Sitka Sentinel celebrated its 75th anniversary last year without much fanfare. As many newspapers in big cities have folded or turned into online only operations, the Sentinel has continued publishing five issues a week. The paper is owned and edited by Thad and Sandy Poulson, journalist who arrived in 1969 and are determined to keep the press running. more
