When Ed Ronco left KCAW's newsroom at the end of September, one of the first people we sought out to temporarily fill that gap was Rachel Waldholz, our 2012 summer intern: "I wasn't sure if I could hack it in the winter!" But, as often happens in Sitka, her short-term commitment evolved into an interest in sticking around. After six weeks of searching, we found our new reporter already at her desk!
Stef Steffen(left in photo), one of the founders of Raven Radio and a Board Member for more than 30 years is stepping down from the board. Please join us this Friday at 7 pm at the station to honor and thank Stef! Snacks and drinks will be provided. All are welcome!

Morning host extraordinaire Melissa Marconi-Wentzel returned to the KCAW fold this October, bringing her unique blend of poise and warmth to our early AM weekday sound. Melissa has served both as program director (2007-2008) at Raven Radio, and as reporter (2004-2007), before taking some time to raise her family. Melissa's also wrapping up her degree in Communications at UAS, and plans to make broadcasting her career. "I knew I wanted to come back to Raven Radio," she says. "But when I sat down in that chair (in the air room) I knew that this is who I am." We never had any doubt!
On Wednesday, November 6th we held our second annual on-air membership meeting from 6:30-8:00 pm. By broadcasting the meeting we can reach more members in Sitka, throughout Southeast Alaska and the world. We covered a lot of great things we'd like you to know about. In case you missed it, you can look at the outline of the meeting's topics here... Raven Radio On-Air Annual Meeting Outline 2013
...or you can listen to the meeting itself here!
A HUGE Thank You to everyone who helped us reach our Fall Goal of $55,000! We had a great time during the One-Day Drive, and it's because of members like You that we can continue to do what we do. Thank You!

Matt, from Air Station Sitka, was in the studio to talk about his Alaskan experience. He reached back to some hits from the 90s and we also got to hear some B sides along the way. It was great to fit him in before he ships off to Washington this fall. Listen to the whole show here:
