We’re excited to be starting a new web series — focusing on snapshots of our unique corner of the world. Say hello to #FocusWesternAK, a KNOM.org series through which we hope to showcase small examples of the sights and beauty of western Alaska, online.
Our first post of #FocusWesternAK takes us to KNOM’s hometown — Nome, Alaska — with a special emphasis on the incredible light, sometimes-abundant sunshine, and gorgeous skies the residents of the Gold Rush City enjoy, throughout the year.
Stay tuned for future #FocusWesternAK posts: both on this website and on Facebook and Twitter.
