“YOURS FOR WESTERN ALASKA”

April ice, and a prestigious award

The winter weather continues: temperatures hover near zero as more ice forms on the Bering Sea. The frigid temperatures bring dazzling, clear, sunlit days and awe-inspiring nights – with the moon and stars shining brightly in the night sky.

We gladly share the congratulations of the entire radio broadcasting community for KNOM’s 2013 Crystal Heritage Award from the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB). We are so grateful to the thousands of KNOM supporters and wish that the entire KNOM family could have stood on the stage to accept this special accolade. (To do so, of course, the stage would need to have been larger than the deck of an aircraft carrier!)

At last week’s award ceremony at the annual NAB Show, the presenter for the Crystal Awards stated:

KNOM is a friendly voice, a community resource, and a vitally-needed lifeline. It is a source of companionship, entertainment, inspiration, and information, and in extreme moments – especially in the midst of dangerous weather conditions – its broadcasts can save lives. For its listeners and the communities of its region, KNOM truly is “Yours for Western Alaska.”

Thank to all who make this critical work possible!
