We’re happy to introduce to you the two volunteers who will serve as KNOM’s news reporters during the 2015-2016 service year. Meet Laura Kraegel and Emily Russell.
Each new generation of KNOM volunteers — including our brand-new, 2015-2016 class — becomes part of a long history that stretches back to even before our first broadcast.
This month, we’re bidding a final goodbye to our volunteer class of 2015. After a profile on our departing news volunteers last month, we’re saying goodbye to our production volunteers: Caitlin, Courtney, and Kristin.
Volunteer alumni Margaret DeMaioribus and Josh Cunningham, who became close friends during their shared volunteer year, recently brought their service experiences full-circle through a special reunion trip to Nome.
New volunteer Maddie reflects on all the things she never imagined she would be doing before she arrived in Alaska.
A B-25J Mitchell bomber left to rust in Nome is being stripped for parts—and may one day be refurbished—thanks to efforts from a Michigan war planes museum and students from across the Bering Strait.
News volunteers Francesca Fenzi and Jenn Ruckel, whose KNOM service terms conclude in July, recently looked back on their tenure at our radio mission.
A recent collection of “e-waste” in Nome was a singular opportunity for our community to make rural Alaska a cleaner place to live. We were happy not only to spread the word about this important community need but also to take part in it!
It’s summer: the time of new beginnings for our volunteers. We’d like to share two small traditions that have become cherished parts of the season.
For the last episode of this year’s season of Sounding Board, we invited our vast listening region to call in and tell us what they think about KNOM. We were heartened and energized by our listeners’ response.
