Candidates Talked, People Listened

On Thursday, October 30th, 360 North teamed up with public broadcasting partners from around the state to provide the final broadcast candidate debates of the election season. In the case of the race between Senator Ted Stevens and Mayor Mark Begich it was the only forum both candidates attended. An hour was dedicated to the candidates of that race and another hour directed toward Congressman Don Young and his opponent Ethan Berkowitz.

KTOO produced the coverage collaborating with KAKM and the Alaska Public Radio Network in KAKM's Anchorage studio. AlaskaOne, 360 North, KAKM and ARCS broadcast the debates on television and the audio feed was available to 26 APRN public radio member stations.

On Sunday, November 2nd, Hays Research Group asked Alaskans if they saw or heard the programs. 603 Alaska households were called at random.

35 percent watched or listened to the public broadcasting debates.

28.4 percent of those people said YES when asked if the debates helped them make up their mind or influenced the way they would vote on November 4.

The candidates talked and the people listened.... on Alaska Public Broadcasting.
