Summertime at KNOM is a bittersweet confluence of happy greetings and difficult goodbyes.

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.
