A special highlight of KNOM’s broadcast schedule and news reporting this autumn was the Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) convention, held in late October in downtown Anchorage.
Through your support, we sent news director Matthew Smith to report on this vital annual gathering of Alaska Native representatives from throughout our state, while, in Nome, we aired gavel-to-gavel coverage of the event.
We’d urge you to visit our news page to browse Matthew’s news dispatches from AFN 2014. Among other topics, his stories detailed the signing of a bill recognizing Alaska Native languages as official state languages, as well as serious discussions on security for subsistence foods and Alaska’s changing climate (pictured above). Thanks for making it possible!
