Senator in the building

Laureli talks with Senator Mark Begich

Longtime readers of the Static may find it no surprise that, last month, KNOM received a visit from US Senator Mark Begich, the junior member of Alaska’s Congressional delegation (pictured, mid-interview, with news director Laureli Kinneen).

As one of the leading news organizations in rural Alaska – and one of the largest in the state – KNOM frequently interviews influential community leaders and policy-makers: whether they’re respected village elders or politicians from Washington, D.C.

It’s thanks to you that, every day, we’re able to provide local, regional, and national news to our thousands of listeners, spread across 100,000 square miles of the Alaskan Bush. To sample our news department’s latest, visit our news page.
