ANCHORAGE, AK - Solstice Advertising, an Anchorage-based full-service advertising agency recently underwent a significant expansion. They are pleased to announce this expansion includes Jennifer Castro as staff copywriter.

Castro joins the Solstice team from KTUU, Channel 2 in Anchorage, where she produced the 5:00 Newscast. She was responsible for all aspects of the live, dailytelevised program.

Additionally, she is a recurring host for Hometown, Alaska on Alaska Public Radio. Her work can be found in numerous statewide and national media outlets, including Alaska Newspapers, Fodor's Alaska, 90.3 KNBA, Anchorage and First Alaskans Magazine.
