Caitlin, Spot-On

Producer and Morning Show host Caitlin Whyte.

She’s come a long way to help make our mission possible, and she’s the first voice many of our listeners hear every weekday. First-year volunteer Caitlin Whyte, most recently a resident of New York City, is now our Morning Show host and, in her off-air hours, a producer at KNOM.

Originally from Rochester, New York, Caitlin graduated in 2011 from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Plattsburgh. Before arriving at our mission in mid-July, she worked both within radio and television in New York City; it’s broadcast experience she’s now putting to good use at KNOM.

As one of our volunteer producers, Caitlin oversees “spots”: short radio messages, 30 to 90 seconds in length, covering a wide variety of topics, similar to public service announcements (or PSAs). The spots that Caitlin writes and produces focus on our Western Alaska region, community issues, and overall educational and informational topics.

As a producer, Caitlin is continuing a spot production tradition that goes back to KNOM’s earliest days on the air (in 1971), although she says that some of her favorite spots — those focusing on technology in a rural Alaskan context — are very much of the modern era.

Now, as always, thanks so much for allowing our producers, and all of our volunteers, to stay actively connected to the communities we serve.
