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.
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.
Meet the pastor of Nome’s St. Joseph Catholic Church — and the new voice of Mass on KNOM’s Sunday Mornings.
We’re happy to introduce to you the news reporters of our volunteer class of 2016-2017; meet Davis Hovey and Tyler Stup.
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.
Starting this month, KNOM now offers a new inspirational spot each week on knom.org.
Just a reminder: KNOM never has, nor ever will, share, rent, sell, exchange, or barter your personal information with anyone, for any reason. This is a promise we take very seriously.
In recent weeks, it’s been a tale of two studios at KNOM. As our brand-new, digital studios have become fully operational, our existing studio rooms have been getting a facelift.
A recent gift from a KNOM benefactor will play a special role in our digital studios’ dedication in October.
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.
