Moore Up North: Remembering Ted Stevens

Ted Stevens

This weeks show was taped only a couple of days after the tragic plane crash near Dillingham, Alaska that killed 5 people, including former Senator Ted Stevens.  The assembled panel included a journalist who covered Stevens for decades, a politician who worked with Stevens for decades, and a great friend of the former senator who was his law partner in the early 1960s.

In the first part of the program, we dissect Ballot Prop 2-parental notification.

INTERVIEW:

Dr. Monique Karaganis-Board certified pediatrician at Polar Pediatrics talks about Ballot Prop 2 and why you should vote no. Bernadette Wilson, Chair of Alaskans for Parental Rights agreed to have someone debate the merits of Ballot Prop 2, but apparently, they can only talk about it in the friendly confines of right-wing radio. She cancelled half an hour before the taping.

PANELISTS:
Michael Carey-free lance writer, former editor of the Anchorage Daily News and the host of Anchorage Edition and Running on KAKM Channel 7.  Michael does a great impersonation of Ted Stevens…complete with the F-bomb.
Arliss Sturgulewski-Alaska State Senator from 1978-1992. Alaska Republican Gubernatorial Candidate in 1986 and 1990. Advisory Council-University of Alaska School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences.  Had many interactions with Ted Stevens spanning decades.
Jack Roderick-Anchorage Mayor 1972-75, author of “Crude Dreams: A Personal History Of Oil & Politics In Alaska”. Practiced law with Ted Stevens and shared a great and lasting friendship.

  1. Bravo!

  2. Why did Laurence O’Donnell get the MSNBC prime-time slot? It should have been you. I’ve never even been to Alaska and I love you. I mean, you know, professionally. Your show, and everything. Yeah, that.

  3. This was really a sweet show. And the flyby was so cool. Whether intentional or by happenstance; it was a neat. Thanks for honoring Uncle Ted, may he rest in a well deserved peace.
