KSTK remembers Dawn Hutchinson

We’re sad to report that former KSTK-FM Program Director Dawn Hutchinson-Stevens died Wednesday. She was a longtime host and programmer whose voice was well-known in Wrangell and throughout the public radio community in Southeast Alaska.

Dawn was active in the Wrangell Cooperative Association, the Alaska Native Sisterhood, St. Philip’s Episcopal Church and other organizations.

Our condolences go out to all of Dawn’s family members and friends. We’ll be sharing more information about her in the coming days.
