Young broadcasters

Kelly with Anvil City Science Academy students

In early February, KNOM was proud to be host to local students for a day of educational projects, introducing the children to broadcasting and interviewing skills as part of an artist-in-residency program.

The 5th- and 6th-grade students visited our studios from Nome’s Anvil City Science Academy, a local charter school. In small groups, the students spent time behind the microphone, honing their interviewing skills by speaking with notable Nome residents.

The visit involved the coordination of Nome teachers and, of course, a number of KNOM’s staff and volunteers. Pictured above is program director Kelly Brabec, guiding two students through an interview in KNOM’s Studio C. Pictured in the foreground (at right) is student Sarah Wade.

We know that visits like these are not only appreciated by the students and their teachers, but also fundamental to our mission – especially our goals to educate, engage, and inspire our community.

Thank you for helping KNOM encourage a new generation of broadcasters: whether over the airwaves or inside the studio. It makes such a difference.
