We’re happy to introduce to you the news reporters of our volunteer class of 2016-2017; meet Davis Hovey and Tyler Stup.
It’s a bittersweet moment, as we say farewell to volunteer community deejay Marjorie Tahbone, who, as the host of Alianait Radio, has lovingly shared the culture and language of her Alaska Native upbringing — as well as music inspired by that culture.
In recent weeks, it’s been a tale of two studios at KNOM. As our brand-new, digital studios have become fully operational, our existing studio rooms have been getting a facelift.
One of the last projects of KNOM volunteer Emily Russell, prior to her departure from Nome, was to compile a series of photographs of Stebbins, Alaska, which she visited twice in her ’15-’16 term. It’s part of our new series, #FocusWesternAK.
We’re excited to introduce to you Karen Trop and Lauren Frost, the producers of our 2016-2017 class of KNOM volunteers.
On July 14, KNOM celebrated its 45th anniversary — while, at the same time, continuing to work towards our intended autumn launch timeline for our brand-new digital studios.
A few months ago, KNOM’s Margaret DeMaioribus accompanied Nome parish priest Fr. Vince Burns on a day trip above the Arctic Circle: to the hub city of Kotzebue, Alaska.
Summertime at KNOM is a bittersweet confluence of happy greetings and difficult goodbyes. This month, we’re saying a final “Godspeed” to the four outstanding people who’ve just departed Nome for points south: our 2015-16 volunteers Maddie, Emily, Laura, and Mitch, who consistently went above and beyond in serving the people of Western Alaska this year.
Recycling is a complicated and often-unwieldy — but still important — task in the Alaska Bush. That’s why we’re happy to spread the word about Nome’s annual e-waste recycling event — and why we participate ourselves.
We’re within a few short weeks of beginning to use our expanded studio — the Tom and Florence Busch Digital Studios — as an active broadcast and production space.
