This week (12-31-13) radio stations in Southeast Alaska say goodbye to a longtime friend and colleague, Matt Lichtenstein. Lichtenstein is the most senior reporter in CoastAlaska, and our regional expert on fisheries. He’s been at KFSK in Petersburg for 18 years, but on Tuesday he hung up his microphone and tape recorder and picked up his Grundens to join the SE commercial fishing fleet full time as a power troller. Be sure to listen to him sing “Ode to a Lost Cannonball.”
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!
