Volunteer Dayneé Rosales recently traveled to an incredible place: Barrow, Alaska, the northernmost city in the USA and the host of a traditional whaling festival, Nalukataq.
It’s a moment of transitions for our volunteer program. We’re so excited to introduce to you the five outstanding women who will serve as our 2014-2015 volunteers.
Funds for our studio construction are now just shy of $700,000; Dayneé has received an award for her production work; and our entire station is a finalist for one of broadcasting’s highest honors.
Thanks to you, KNOM continues to be a place where nutrition and health are regularly encouraged. One example: the Morning Show and Breakfast Wednesday.
After more than six decades in the sub-Arctic, the Little Sisters of Jesus are moving on to points south. Through your support, KNOM brought their incredible story to the airwaves.
Nome’s annual e-waste event took place in late May, offering residents a chance to responsibly dispose of all sorts of electronic equipment. Thanks to you, KNOM was there.
We’re expecting our studio construction to hit another important milestone this month – with interior spaces completed and ready for equipment!
There’s an extra (smiling) face around KNOM this summer: Jeff Collins, a Nome school teacher who’s pitching in some part-time work in our business department.
Even for seasoned Alaskans, it still has the potential to dazzle: as you read these words, Nome is experiencing the peak of our summer’s midnight sun.
Our goal – to raise $1 million for our digital studio expansion and renovation project – is a few notches closer to reality, thanks to the continuing generosity of so many supporters.
