Summer is here and that means it’s time to go boating. Alaska has approximately 34,000 miles of coastline (coast.noaa.gov) and 365,000 miles of rivers (rivers.gov) with people living, working, exploring and enjoying them. They also have accidents and tragically die in boating accidents of all kinds. As we prepare for the boating season, it is worth reviewing the equipment and safety precautions necessary for a safe and enjoyable boating season. Guests of this show will discuss boating safety and will include staff from the Alaska Board of Boating Safety, the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium Injury Prevention Program, the Kingikmiut Singers and Dancers of Anchorage, and the Maniilaq Association of Kotzebue.

Eric Bork, or you can just call him “Bork” because everyone else does, was the audio media producer for KSKA-FM. He now produces and edits episodes of Outdoor Explorer, the Alaskan-focused outdoor program. He also manages the web publications for this show. You may have heard him replace Morning Edition or All Things Considered and can still find him running the sound card for one of the live broadcast shows. After escaping from the Detroit area at the age of 18, Bork traveled to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, where he earned a degree in communications / broadcasting from Northern Michigan University. He spent time running the college radio station, working for the local NPR affiliate, then in Michigan’s top 40 radio station before coming to Alaska to work his first summers. After moving to Chicago, it only took five years to convince him to return to Alaska in 2010. When not involved in a lot of radio programming, he probably rides a bike, thinks about riding a bike, dreams of bikes, reads a book or plans the the next place he will be. There are only two continents left to conquer!
