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.

Sacred Gifts

A recent gift from a KNOM benefactor will play a special role in our digital studios’ dedication in October.

Snapshots of Stebbins, Alaska

One of the last projects of KNOM volunteer Emily Russell, prior to her departure from Nome, was to compile a series of photographs of Stebbins, Alaska, which she visited twice in her ’15-’16 term. It’s part of our new series, #FocusWesternAK.
