KNOM’s last Exchange, before a brief hiatus during race season, was focused on housing in Western Alaska.
In this two-part discussion, our different sets of guests, who are local and regional housing experts, talked about the realities of the housing crisis in our region. We discussed what could be changed, how other people or organizations could help solve the issue, and what kind of resources would be needed to really address the shortage of adequate housing.
The Exchange program on KNOM will return to its regular schedule in April, airing every first and third Tuesday of the month. Stay tuned to KNOM for the latest information on what the next topic will be and how you can join the conversation.
