Mayor Bronson hires Corey Allen Young for his press office


Corey Allen Young is leaving the governor’s media team and joining Mayor Dave Bronson’s office as his communication director. He has been deputy press secretary for Gov. Mike Dunleavy, and earlier worked in the Walker Administration in various communications capacities, including the Department of Corrections.

“Corey Allen Young brings a level of experience in media, government and non-profit communications that will prove invaluable for my team and the Municipality of Anchorage. His wealth of experience and knowledge for our community, particularly as a born and raised resident, will serve the Municipality well as we work to advance critical priorities relating to housing and homelessness, economic development, public safety and more,” said Mayor Bronson. “I want to personally thank Governor Dunleavy for sharing such a talented individual with our team and look forward to our continued work together on behalf of Alaska.”

Young has worked in television news as a journalist in Fairbanks and Anchorage with KXD, KIMO, KTVA, and KTUU. He has worked in Special Education for the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District at West Valley High School.

He has also worked in communications for Catholic Social Services Alaska and Charis Bible College, served on boards for Standing Together Against Rape, Children’s Meal Mission, and Alaska Adoption Services and has coached youth football and basketball with East Anchorage High School, West Valley High School, Boys and Girls Club Alaska, and the YMCA of Alaska for more than 20 years.

Young is a graduate of East Anchorage High School and Marquette University. He begins work at City Hall on Monday.

Matt Shuckerow will continue working as an adviser but will return to the consulting and communications with the firm he founded, Fathom Strategic Communications, after managing Sen. Dan Sullivan successful 2020 reelection campaign. Shuckerow was communications director during the Bronson transition and for the first seven weeks of his administration, as a temporary assignment.
