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.
A recent gift from a KNOM benefactor will play a special role in our digital studios’ dedication in October.
Our series #FocusWesternAK continues with a look at Shishmaref, a community of 600 located on the edge of the Chukchi Sea — and threatened by climate change.
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.
Our #FocusWesternAK series continues with a look at Stebbins, Alaska, in both summer and winter.
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.
