Raven Radio established itself as a force to be reckoned with in local endurance sports by capturing 2nd place (1:50:40) in the corporate category of the 29th annual Julie Hughes Triathlon last weekend (5-18-13). Post-graduate fellow Anne Brice (run) and news director Robert Woolsey (bike, swim) spent months developing the core strength and stamina needed to challenge the category favorite Hames Center (1:24:31), whom they lost to by a mere fraction of an hour. The near-victory proves that Raven is not only a black bird, but also a dark horse on wings.
The Weather Channel's hit series Coast Guard Alaska was in Sitka again this week to film an episode on the dramatic rescue of the crew of the fishing vessel Kaitlin Rae, which sank off Cape Edgecumbe on September 7, 2012. The boat's skipper, Stonie "Mac" Huffman, drifted ten miles in his survival suit before being picked up; 19-year-old crewman Ryan Harris drifted overnight in a fish tote. The show's producers called the station an asked us to help re-create local media during the event. We did not have to twist Ed's arm to put him in front of the camera. Before coming to Sitka, he hosted his newspaper's webcast.
