December 2003: “No more powerful medium…”

December 26, 2003

A board member of Alaska’s Breast Cancer Detection Center writes, thanking the station for its free announcements that help to make a village mammogram program a great success:

Many of the patients reported that they had heard about it on KNOM… This was the first time we had tried to market village trips using radio, and I assure you that we will continue… There is absolutely no more powerful medium in these towns and villages than radio, and KNOM ranks at the top. I do not think any other station can top the respect and trust of your station, and it was an exciting experience for me to finally have proof!
