A born-and-raised native of Buffalo, New York, Tara Cicatello is a 2013 graduate of Canisius College, where she majored in English.
Tara is deeply curious about new cultures and ways of life. She says she’s excited to meet the people, learn the customs, explore the terrain, and immerse herself in the Western Alaska community that KNOM serves.
With “an adventurous and diligent” spirit, Tara first came to KNOM as a volunteer producer, serving a year during our 2013-2014 term. Now, while pursuing other projects within the Nome community, she still volunteers a few hours of her time each week to host the wildly popular show AK Country: Wednesdays from 2 to 4pm on KNOM.
