Letter: News hires for TV need training

July 4, 2013 

I notice that more than one local television station has hired new people from “Outside.” The giveaway? Tanana does not rhyme with banana. However, Nenana does. 

Before the new hires are put on the air please give them training in Alaska geography and Alaska place-name pronunciation.
