About

The Blue Alaskan Blog (TBA), was known for its hard-hitting and aggressive investigative reporting, shed light on the dark side of Anchorage politics, brought about reform, helped push progressive candidates across the finish line, and kept bad actors out of local government.

Several stories published in The Blue Alaskan led to the blog being cited and its stories further reported on or republished by news and media outlets such as the Washington Post, Alaska Public Media, Alaska Democrats, Book Riot, Business Insider, The Library Journal, The Friendly Atheist, LGBTQ Nation, Los Angeles Blade, The Midnight Sun Blog, Anchorage Press, and the Anchorage Daily News.

Its’ author, Matthew Beck, retired the blog in April 2022.

Social media and website branding was done by a local and very talented cartoonist, Holly Todd.
