Tom Lindner on why he's north to Alaska

Posted by: Neal Justin under Behind the scenes, Local TV and radio Updated: September 9, 2011 - 4:25 PM

As reported earlier today, longtime KARE news director Tom Lindner, who was let go earlier this year, is heading to Alaska to work for a station in Anchorage. He responded to my request for some comments. Here you go:

"There are many attractions. KTUU-TV is a powerhouse station with a large and loyal audience across Alaska. The staff has a strong journalistic tradition, gifted visual story tellers and a keen focus on community involvement. I've been blessed to work at great television stations in my career and this is a continuation of that tradition. Combine all that with the chance to explore life in Alaska, leaves me thrilled I'm fortunate to have been approached by a very well respected colleague about the interim position."
