To build a comprehensive news and information service by partnering with Alaska Public Telecommunications to add hyperlocal blogs and a "virtual community think tank" to the existing public radio and television offerings

As a way to connect Alaskans, the state’s public radio and TV stations will create a robust online news hub. The site will host hyperlocal blogs in addition to virtual community “think tanks” on specific issues like arts and culture, Alaskan natives and local business. Organizers will make a special push to include the voices and contributions of rural Alaskans.
