When my sister moved to Haines in 1980, she sent me tapes to listen to while living on a boat in Florida. I remember hearing the DJ say “It’s a balmy 40 degrees today” and I thought, “how could 40 degrees ever be balmy!!” I moved here in 1990, met my partner and stayed to raise my 3 daughters.
I worked for KHNS over 10 years, (2006-2009) as GM so I know about the funding and operation of the station. I have seen technology go from recording the news on reel to reel webcasting from the Internet. I am currently the Business Manager for the Haines Borough School District and serve on a variety of Non-Profit boards.
I love KHNS, it’s staff and loyal membership and will continue to do what I can to keep it’s signal broadcasting to educate, entertain, and enlighten the Upper Lynn Canal for years to come.
