Alaska Press Club Awards

KHNS News Director, Margaret Friedenauer!

At the Alaska Press Club conference in late April, KHNS took home two awards: Second Place for Best Daily News Program, (right behind statewide APRN) called by the judges, " An informative and lively newscast that gives a comprehensive look at local issues"; and third place for  Best Breaking News Story based on the sinking of the tender, Neptune. Again, from the judges, "This was a comprehensive piece with a number of interesting voices from the scene. It summed up the situation well."

Kudos to Skagway News, Heather Lende and Chilkat Valley News as well. We salute your excellence in journalism and service to our communities!

Upcoming Meetings at KHNS:

The Lynn Canal Broadcasting Board of Directors will be meeting next on Tuesday,July 15, 6pm in the Chilkat Center conference room.

KHNS Survey 

To get an updated sense of what listeners want from KHNS, we conducted a survey in late February in which 220 community members participated. The survey was available online as well as on the street.Some were members, some not and all had different concerns and congratulations about our current programming but there was a lot of common ground and that is where we concentrated our focus. See results on survey page.
