We’ve Only Just Begun

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.

Our 2015-2016 volunteers: Maddie Winchester, Emily Russell, Laura Kraegel, and Mitch Borden.

Farewell to Our ‘16 Volunteers

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.

Keeping Nome Clean in 2016

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.

‘16 Nods from the AK Press Club

In April 2016, KNOM Radio took home four awards from the annual conference of the Alaska Press Club. The awards recognize the work of KNOMers past and present — and they reflect the incredible difference made by our network of supporters and listeners.
