Community Volunteers

Announcers

Have you dreamed of being a radio announcer?

KNOM is always looking for community members to serve as a friend and companion on the airwaves. Please e-mail us to learn more and to get on the schedule for the next training opportunity with KNOM's Operations Manager Davis Hovey.

Volunteering Off-Air

If you love radio, but you don't want to be on the air, KNOM is always looking for helpers around the station. Opportunities include, but are not limited to:

  • Assisting with local language pronunciation guides
  • Sharing history and context for local/regional Alaska Native music recordings
  • Organizing vinyl records and CDs
  • Painting
  • Cleaning
  • Property maintenance

Community volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, complete a brief application, and have a clear background check to serve at KNOM.

Short-Term Volunteers

KNOM welcomes short-term volunteers to live the mission in a variety of capacities around the station — whether a work weekend, school break, or a season of service. Individuals, families, and church groups are welcome to apply.

All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, complete a KNOM volunteer application, and receive a clear background check prior to serving as a volunteer.

If you are traveling from outside the Nome area, volunteers are responsible for airfare and obtaining lodging during their stay. KNOM encourages connecting with local churches or city hospitality.
