Bob Petersen bringing new leadership position at Native Voice One
Anchorage, Alaska - Native Voice One recently welcomed Bob Petersen to take on the role of network manager, leading the charge in producing quality programming that educates, advocates and celebrates indigenous life and values.
Originally from Bethel, much of Petersen’s broadcast background comes from producing and hosting a podcast called “Eskimo Bob Lives” where he interviewed musicians, authors and more. He volunteered at KYUK in Bethel and at his college radio station and brings a history of business experience to his new role at Native Voice One, the distribution division of Anchorage’s Koahnic Broadcast Corporation.
“Bob’s passion for Native radio and commitment to Native Voice One’s mission of bringing Native voices to Alaska and beyond will be invaluable to the organization,” said Jaclyn Sallee, president as CEO of Koahnic Broadcast Corporation. “We’re very excited to have him on board.”
