Webcam fans spot dead bears at Katmai, Hepatitis C cases concerns health officials, a Coffee House preview, and our Friday conversation with UA president Jim Johnsen.
Coming up this week, if a bear falls in the forest, does anyone hear it? We’ll look at how webcam viewers from around the world are helping the park rangers at Katmai keep an eye on their featured wildlife after the busy summer season. The new president of the University of Alaska Dr. Jim Johnsen joins to talk about higher education in an era of belt-tightening budgets. Plus, health officials are noticing a rise in reported cases of hepatits C, which may be tied to the rise in injectable drug use; Doctor Cathy Hyndman tells us why. And, of course, the Emcee of Saturday night's Coffee House offers a preview (from his own repertoire) of Saturday's highly anticipated gathering of artists. Those stories are coming up after a look back at some of the week's news.
That's it for this week's Bristol Bay and Beyond, our weekly newsmagazine on KDLG. We hope you join us each Friday at 12 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on AM670, and at 8:30pm on 89.9 FM.
