Nathan Baring

FM On Call Announcer

Nathan Baring grew up in Fairbanks listening to KUAC FM. “It’s been in our family my entire life,” he said. While in high school he volunteered during the KUAC fundraisers, then transitioned to hosting “World Café.” Now he is an on-call announcer. A biology and political science major at Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota, Nathan said his job at KUAC FM makes him feel like he is giving back to his hometown. “I feel closer to the community when I’m reading the weather forecast or wildfire announcements or PSAs,” he said. “It’s helping bring people together.”
