Normally, it’s our listeners that create and send hotline messages*, but today — April 9th — we have a hotline of our own to send.
Today is our hometown’s birthday. It was on April 9th, 1901 that the City of Nome was first incorporated. So, for today, a special birthday message to our hometown:
TO: The City and People of Nome
FROM: KNOM Radio in Nome
It was on this day in 1901 that you, the City of Nome, were first incorporated. A very Happy, Sweet 114th Birthday! You don’t look a day over 105. Many more years to come!
On this day — and every day, throughout the year — we’re proud to be Yours for Western Alaska, and we couldn’t be prouder to broadcast, each day, from the heart of downtown Nome. We’re proud to be K-Nome.
Many more years to come, Nome.
*By the way: you can send your own hotline messages, of course, right here.
