Ready to Cover the Kusko 300!

On the large window of KNOM's main broadcast studio - Studio A - we've drawn a map of the Kuskokwim 300 route. We're ready for the race!

It’s race season once again in Western Alaska, and at KNOM, we’re excited to be reporting on the sled-dog and snowmachine teams that will be racing across our region in the coming months.

This weekend (January 20-22), we’ll be bringing you special coverage of the 2012 Kuskokwim 300 Sled Dog Race, which – as seen in KNOM’s own map, drawn on our studio window – both starts and ends in the southwestern Alaskan city of Bethel.

Join us on KNOM (96.1fm, 780am) for kickoff K300 coverage on Friday, January 20th at 6:30pm, with race updates throughout Saturday and Sunday, January 21st and 22nd: at 9am, 12noon, 5pm, and 8pm.

Listen for regular, live updates from our reporter on the trail, as well as the live finish of the K300 on Sunday, January 22nd.

Here’s the promotional spot we’ve produced, summarizing our K300 race coverage:

If possible, we’ll also post on this blog during the race. Stay tuned!
