KNOM AM/FM recently won an Alaska Broadcasters Association “Goldie” Award for its coverage of the 2016 Iditarod. As always, we’re honored to share the award with all whose support keeps KNOM on the air.
KNOM is currently accepting applications for 2017-2018 volunteer fellowships. Do you know someone who might be interested in joining the team?
At the beginning of each service year, our year-long volunteers spend a weekend in retreat, preparing for the challenges and joys of the year to come.
In their audioblog, the volunteers talk movies, channeling their inner Roger Ebert — or, since this is radio, their inner (NPR movie reviewer) Bob Mondello.
We’re happy to introduce to you the news reporters of our volunteer class of 2016-2017; meet Davis Hovey and Tyler Stup.
Join Davis, Tyler, Lauren and Karen as they discuss their initial experiences traveling to the villages of Western 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.
We’re excited to introduce to you Karen Trop and Lauren Frost, the producers of our 2016-2017 class of KNOM volunteers.
“I never really understood what it meant to be humbled by nature until I came here,” Tyler reflects. Join Davis, Karen, Lauren, and Tyler as they discuss the impact the Western Alaskan environment has had on them.
“If you live in Nome, you always have a song in your head,” Lauren observes. She and volunteers Davis, Karen, and Tyler recall the 2016 folk fest in their latest audioblog episode.
