After the special session...

When the special session of the Alaska Legislature concludes, 360 North will begin presenting its full schedule of programming. There are some great shows with a wide range of subjects and some new programs and series that will be premiering in December.

Immediately after the Alaska legislative coverage ends, there are several Gavel to Gavel Alaska Special Presentations coming to 360 North viewers. They are all long-format public affairs programming at its best.

Through collaboration with the National Association of Public Affairs Networks, 360 North has access to extensive coverage of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Annual Conference that took place this fall in Boston. Sessions that will be broadcast on 360 North include:

-Building the Energy Grid
-Health Care Reform Challenge
-The Traditional School Day
-Climate Change
-Early Education
-End of Life Care
-Property Tax Reform
-Separation of Powers
-New Media
-Immigration Reform
-Public Affairs Networks

Also during the week after the special session we will present fifteen different public presentations made possible by our partnership with the University of Alaska Southeast.
