Through a Glass, Brightly

Sawing, hammering, drilling, nailing: through the late winter, the noises coming from our downtown Nome studios aren’t just those passing through our microphones and sound boards.

Construction continues to move forward on the Tom and Florence Busch Digital Studios.

With carpeting and soundproofing now essentially complete, the latest work on our under-construction studio spaces involve the glass windows partitioning one room from another. There’ll be ample visibility between our studios, allowing on-air deejays or news readers to communicate more immediately with other staff members and vise-versa. (First-year volunteer Courtney Cousins is pictured, here, giving the studios a quick walk-through last month.)
