Rhonda McBride

KNBA, the Anchorage-based radio station owned by Koahnic Broadcast Corporation, added two veteran journalists to its broadcast newsroom.

Rhonda McBride comes aboard as News Director, bringing more than thirty years of experience covering rural issues and Alaska Native culture, language, and history. She has also reported on state and local government, fisheries, Alaska Native corporations, and the oil industry. She moderated the first US Senate debate north of the Arctic Circle during the 2016 election. McBride’s work has been recognized both nationally and locally, through the Alaska Press Club, the Northwest Pacific Emmys, the Society of Professional Journalists, and more. In May 2022, she was inducted into the Alaska Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame.

Jill Fratis, the new News Producer for KNBA, previously was station manager of KUHB in St. Paul. She has experience in both early childhood and technical education and as a tribal government service coordinator and wellness advocate for the Aleut Community of St. Paul.
