Nome for the Holidays

Festively dressed Gabe, Zoe and Karen point to the Christmas Star light switch

KNOM runs 24 hours a day, and even on holidays like Christmas and New Year’s, there’s weather to be recorded, hotlines to read, and closures to be announced. So for the holiday season, we don’t get to go “home” to the Lower 48.

In some ways, it can be hard. It was sad for me to be away from my family. But in others, it was a wonderful opportunity to broaden our Christmas celebration experiences.

Join us for a merry and bright discussion of what it’s like to be in Western Alaska for the “most wonderful time of the year.” Listen above!

Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
