KTVA 11 news – “The Voice of Alaska” – is reportedly losing one of its main voices – evening anchor Emily Carlson, who the station has heavily promoted since her arrival in Anchorage five years ago.
Multiple sources have told craigmedred.news that Carlson is among four employees – about 16 percent of a 25-person newsroom listed on the KTVA contact page – laid off because of financial struggles at the GCI-owned television station.
KTVA News Director Janis Harper did not return a Friday message asking for comment, but Jerry Bever, KTVA vice-president and general manager subsequently sent this email:
“While I appreciate your inquiry, unfortunately we don’t provide comment or information regarding personnel issues. Thanks for checking in.
