Telos Tackles the Last Frontier

Posted by Tom Vernon on Dec 14, 2016 11:29:00 AM

So it is in Alaska. “The Last Frontier” is served by 26 public radio licensees. Scattered across the state, they cover over 90 percent of the population. Reflecting the unique needs of each community, their program content varies widely, ranging from locally-produced entertainment to town meetings to regional and national news and information.

Posted by Dave Sarkies on Mar 2, 2016 12:30:00 AM

This may be why he's in high demand, having worked in a variety of settings and countries.
