The late and beloved John Active has joined the ranks of the Alaska Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame. John worked with KYUK for more than 40 years in both radio and television as a journalist, Yup’ik translator, storyteller, talk show host, and radio personality. The Alaska Broadcasters Association inducted John on Friday at the Association’s annual awards ceremony in Anchorage. KTVA "Frontiers" host and former KYUK News Director Rhonda McBride, along with KYUK General Manager Shane Iverson, nominated John and presented the award. John’s cousin Marie Meade, a professor of Alaska Native Studies at UAA, accepted the award on behalf of John’s family. Below are their speeches in full. John, congratulations. We wish you could have been there.
