KHNS NEWS STAFF
Abbey came to Haines from Massachusetts, by way of Petersburg. In Boston, she worked at WBUR for the nationally-syndicated program On Point with Tom Ashbrook before over-stuffing her backpack and moving across the country. In Petersburg, Abbey worked as KFSK’s news intern, hosting their local Morning Edition and reporting on everything from fish to ferries to puppet makers. At the end of the summer, she hopped on the ferry and made her way up the Lynn Canal to Haines. When she’s not in the newsroom, Abbey can be found hiking, biking, or valiantly trying to learn how to backcountry ski.
Berett Wilber joins KHNS’s newsroom following an internship at KUCB in Unalaska. She is originally from Sitka and worked in the state legislature before deciding to pursue journalism.
