Meet the Team

KNOM has a large, dedicated family tree: encompassing volunteers, staff, and alumni, benefactors throughout the United States, and listeners across Western Alaska.

The people below are the ones who tie it all together day-to-day, as paid staff members, volunteer fellows, and community volunteers.
