Board & Staff


Cary Birdsall


I am a long-time KTNA supporter and volunteer. I grew up near Syracuse, NY, and moved to Alaska in 1971. I have been a full-time Talkeetna resident since 1994 when I moved here to teach at Talkeetna Elementary. I retired from teaching in 2007 after 28 years of teaching here and in Anchorage. My children grew up here, and graduated from Susitna Valley Jr./Sr. High School.

I started my Alaska experience in Denali National Park in 1997 and moved to the quaint little town of  Talkeetna in 2000. Little did I know that this charming town of Talkeetna would become my permanent home. The amazing mix of people I have met here make this town so unique and colorful. In 2002, I volunteered as a music DJ and “the mixing hour” was born. I was instantly hooked. After all these years it is still one of the things I look forward to each week. I fully believe in KTNA’s core mission of keeping the community connected through public radio and am amazed at what a small dedicated staff and a large pool of volunteers can accomplish. I am proud to be a member, volunteer, and listener of KTNA and hope to be for many years to come.
