Remembering Ted Stevens

Alaska has more planes and pilots per capita than anywhere else in the world. Too many times those planes go down. Alaska has lost an icon.

Today on The Shannyn Moore Show we will remember Ted Stevens.

First Hour, former Senator and presidential candidate Mike Gravel will call in from Washington DC.

Second Hour, Don Mitchell will join me in the studio. Donald Mitchell is an attorney in Anchorage, Alaska. From 1977 to 1993, Mitchell was in Washington, D.C., working as then-vice-president, then-general counsel of the Alaska Federation of Natives. Mitchell is the author of Sold American: The Story of Alaska Natives and Their Land and Take My Land Take My Life: The Story of Congress’s Historic Settlement of Alaska Native Land Claims, which in 2006 the Alaska Historical Society recognized as two of the most important books ever written about the history of Alaska.

As always, we will be taking your calls.

907.569.1080

We broadcast on KUDO 1080am Anchorage and KXLJ 1330am Juneau from 11am-2pm ADT/3pm-6pm EDT.

  1. Why Mike Gravel???? He doesn’t live in Alaska and has no credibility. Please do better than that for Ted. There are many progressives who have the utmost respect for Stevens and Gravel is not one of them. Please show some class.

    • Senator Mike Gravel served in Washington DC with Senator Ted Stevens for 12 years. He was commenting this morning on national television about Ted Stevens’ life.

      They certainly had disagreements but Mike is a friend of mine and a great Alaskan. I thought Mike was an appropriate guest.

      You’re certainly welcome to suggest other guests. And you’re always welcome to call in. I was up very late-into the wee hours of the morning waiting for any sign of hope for survivors. That didn’t leave a lot of time to book guests.

  2. Don Mitchell was an excellent guest choice.

    I’m emotionally exhausted today. So very, very sorry to see him go this way.

    My sympathies to his family, his youngest daughter Lily.
