Join us Fridays for Bristol Bay and Beyond, our weekly newsmagazine on KDLG. The show airs at 12 pm and 6:30 pm on AM 670, and 8:30 pm on 89.9 FM.

Bristol Bay and Beyond, March 4: On this week's show, BBEDC's Norm Van Vactor offers reaction to the Board of Fish meeting, and what keeps Area M and Bristol Bay stakeholders at odds (hint: Outer Port Heiden).  APRN's now veteran Iditarod trail reporter offers a preview of this year's race, plus we'll go behind the scenes with Pamyua as they workshop their music and message with area youth. Pediatric specialists were in Dillingham this week, talking about the lifetime of effects that come from traumatic or adverse experiences during childhood (ACES). And biologists are going to try a new method to count moose in the Togiak Refuge, as mother nature has continued to hamper the old way of spotting their dark brown bodies against the backdrop of white snow. Those stories, plus a look back at some of the week's news, on our weekly newsmagazine.
