Originally from New Haven, Connecticut, Zachariah Hughes brings to KNOM a record of traveling and exploring new cultures.

At 18, he lived for a year as an exchange student in southern Turkey, and as a college junior, he studied abroad in the Czech Republic.

Zach graduated from Harvard in 2012 with a bachelor’s in social sciences, and in the year before coming to Alaska, he called New York home, interning for public radio and reading TV scripts for a production studio.

At KNOM, Zach works as one of our two volunteer news reporters; he says he’s thrilled at the opportunity to immerse himself in the life and culture of the region we serve.
