KNOM is a radio station with community at its core; we exist to serve the community and, in so many ways, draw our strength and energy from the community. We are so blessed with the goodwill and selflessness of those in our region.

Exemplifying this spirit of volunteerism are the local deejays who give 1 to 4 hours of their time, each week, to host specialty music shows on KNOM, during evenings or weekend afternoons. Their positions are completely pro bono; our community DJs – like Will Gemar, pictured at top – come to our station out of a love for music and a desire to share a bit of themselves with our listeners.

At KNOM, we’re fortunate to have dedicated supporters, dedicated listeners, and dedicated members of our local community. Together, it’s an incredible family that makes our mission possible.
