It was an adventure that she describes as one of the most incredible highlights of her year of service. In April, news volunteer Francesca Fenzi hit the trail for a sled dog race that offers a unique look of what makes rural Alaska so special.
April’s NAB Show offered a few KNOMers the rare chance to see and touch a wide variety of cutting-edge sound equipment. This was a crucial opportunity as work moves forward on our digital studios.
Our listeners have become slightly more fluent in the Alaska Native language of Iñupiaq through a new series of fun, conversation-focused radio spots.
On the 114th birthday of the City of Nome, a special hotline to KNOM’s hometown — with wishes for many more years to come.
Even though our digital studios are still under-construction, their uninterruptible power supply (UPS) battery unit — an impressive apparatus that will provide backup power for the entire studio — has just come online. Here’s why that’s important.
Serving the people of Western Alaska takes one to incredible places. Father Ross Tozzi recently returned from an extraordinary, unexpectedly lengthy stay in one of our region’s most singular communities, and later this month, he’ll be traveling again: this time, out of Western Alaska, entirely.
In March, the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race traversed the wilds of Alaska. As we’ve done every year, KNOM covered the incredible sporting event both from Nome and on-location: from the remote, interior Alaska checkpoints of this year’s unusual race route.
