This week KCAW says goodbye to Greta Mart, our 2014 summer news intern, Greta Mart. Greta worked for 8 years as a professional print reporter in the Bay Area before applying to the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and making the leap into broadcasting. Greta filed stories for the KCAW News Department on her first AND last days of work (and many in between). A letter-writer to her newspaper in Martinez, CA, once wrote that "Greta covers the county like a buzzsaw." We made that nickname stick: Thanks for the hard work, Buzz! Good luck in your career, whether it leads you back to the Bay, or to Infinity and Beyond!

Friday, May 16, 2014, was Emily Forman's last day on the job as KCAW's Post-Graduate Fellow in Community Journalism (aka "Winter Fellow"). Over the past nine months she's reported on just about everything that makes Sitka the interesting community it is: the subsistence herring
harvest, locally-sourced school lunches,
the Orthodox Church,
to name just a few. And it's not just us she's impressed. Emily is spending her last week in town developing her story on birds and airport safety into a feature for National Public Radio's All Things Considered.
