KNOM was the proud recipient, late last year, of an all-expenses-paid fellowship from the Alaska Press Club for a week of training in Anchorage. Attending these special sessions were news volunteers Francesca and Jenn.
We’re excited to share that volunteer news reporter Jenn Ruckel was on-location in Fairbanks late last year for the ordination of the new bishop for our diocese.
In January, volunteers Kristin Leffler and Courtney Cousins went to Elim, Alaska, for a very special community gathering: elder Eliza Katongan’s 100th birthday party.
Meet Marjorie Tahbone, one of KNOM’s newest deejays and a person whose roots, and passions, go deep in Alaska.
Even though ours is a region plentiful in reindeer, that’s not how Santa Claus — and one of our reporters — traveled to one of the communities KNOM serves for a special visit last month.
Both within our ledgers and within the walls of our nascent digital studios, we’ve made exciting strides even since our last newsletter hit the printers and the web.
On December 19th, the atmosphere was even more festive than usual at KNOM studios, as our volunteers and staff hosted an annual holiday tradition: our Christmas Call-In Show.
This month, our mission will be sending tax receipts to every benefactor who donated a total of $100 or more during 2014. By default, we’ll send you this receipt in the postal mail, but just let us know if you’d prefer a PDF tax receipt sent via email.
We present a handful of unique situations that have impacted our financial outlook in recent years, as well as ongoing initiatives and practices to make the most of each dollar we receive.
Those over age 70 1/2 who may wish to donate to KNOM in the last few days of 2014 directly from their IRA now have an extra incentive to do so: special tax deductions.
