Meet the women and men who, with your support, work every day for the incredible people and region of Western Alaska.
It’s the beginning of “race season” in Western Alaska: the sled dog and snowmachine races that traverse, and fascinate, our state. In January, we covered the Kuskokwim 300.
In addition to our Nome headquarters, KNOM’s development and business office has opened a second branch in Anchorage. Our new office allows us to serve even more efficiently both our rural Alaskan listeners and the many Lower 48 supporters who make our mission possible.
From the Fairbanks bishop to staffers and supporters, old and new, KNOM has been graced with a number of special visitors this winter: all of them, members of the incredible KNOM family.
From a stranded seal to a dangerous hole in Yukon River ice, recent stories from KNOM’s news department offer a special glimpse into what makes Western Alaska so unique — and, at times, so challenging.
As KNOM’s new program director, Laura Collins is keeping alive a cornerstone of our daily mission: overseeing the many kinds of programming that entertain, inform, engage, and inspire our listeners.
In December, our annual Christmas Call-In Show gave Alaskan listeners a special, festive way to spread holiday cheer to their loved ones — thanks to you.
Our newest staffer at KNOM is Margaret DeMaioribus, a volunteer alumna who’s returned to Nome, and our mission, to coordinate our current volunteer program, to reach out to our local community, and to recruit the next generation of KNOMers from colleges and universities.
As the calendar year turns over into 2016, we’d like to mention a few items you may find in your mailbox from KNOM in the coming weeks — if not already.
A new program on KNOM offers “audio postcards” from different places and different moments of daily life in Western Alaska. Learn more about the show Dearest Alaska.
