KNOM staff and friends at the dedication of the Tom and Florence Busch Digital Studios

A New Studio — and a New Chapter — for KNOM

On October 1st, staff, supporters, and friends of KNOM gathered to celebrate the dedication of the brand-new Tom and Florence Busch Digital Studios. It was the realization of a five-year campaign, a vision made possible through the kind generosity, prayer, and support of so many.

Programming and News, By the Numbers

Through your support, inspiration, education, and news remain the focus of our daily work, as they have been since 1971. Thousands of times each year, KNOM’s broadcasts carry snapshots of our region: of its culture and heritage, its local news and stories, and its faith.

Special Sounds in Our Studios

It’s a bittersweet moment, as we say farewell to volunteer community deejay Marjorie Tahbone, who, as the host of Alianait Radio, has lovingly shared the culture and language of her Alaska Native upbringing — as well as music inspired by that culture.
