We’re pleased to introduce Daysha Eaton as KYUK’s news director, taking over news room management and news reporting from Angela Denning-Barnes who moved to KFSK public radio in Petersburg in February. Daysha joined the news team of Ben Matheson, Charles Enoch and Julia Jimmie on March 24th. Regular news listeners have already heard her reporting on our noon news.
Daysha hails from the Port Townsend area of Washington State. She had news broadcasting experience in the Pacific Northwest and then spent one year as a news reporter at KDLG Dillingham and two years as a reporter for KSKA and the Alaska Public Radio Network (APRN) in Anchorage. We’re excited to have her here to bring her reporting experience to the issues and topics of interest to all our listeners throughout the YK Delta.
We also want to welcome Charles Enoch to our news team. Charles is from Tuntutuliak and started work as Yup’ik news reporter in mid February. He’s quickly learning the skills and techniques of news reporting in both Yup’ik and English languages. He’s already had two stories go statewide on APRN, one on the Bethel Winter House and one on the Manakotok VPSPO memorial.
Welcome to both Daysha and Charles.
