Alaska magazine

Alaska magazine

"Alaska " is a periodical devoted to news and discussion of issues and features of and from Alaska. A great deal of its readership consists of persons outside of Alaska who are interested in the Alaskan way of life.

"Alaska" magazine was founded in 1935 in Ketchikan, Alaska, as the "Alaska Sportsman Magazine". It operated much then as it does today, being sold through newsstand sales and subscriptions. The major difference in its early daysFact|date=April 2007 was the fact that paper stock to print the magazine arrived via steamship, posing the threat of delays.

The magazine was eventually sold to Robert Henning, who guided it for many years. The magazine is currently owned by Morris Communications, a Georgia-based company which also publishes "the Milepost" travel guide, several Alaskan newspapers, and owns a number of radio stations in Anchorage.
