Twenty years ago this past weekend, Evan Ramsey shot and killed two people at the Bethel High School: Principal Ron Edwards and student Josh Palacios. This week, KYUK, in partnership with KTVA’s Rhonda McBride, is re-broadcasting a series that looks back on the tragedy and the Ramsey family. McBride produced the five-part series for Alaska News Nightly in 1999, two years after the shooting.
Rhonda McBride was one of the first reporters to cover the Bethel shooting tragedy when she worked at KYUK. McBride is currently host of KTVA’s Frontiers weekly public affairs program. In collaboration with KYUK, Frontiers will revisit the shooting on its program Sunday with more interviews and insights at 4:30 and 10:30 p.m. on KTVA, Channel 11.
