4 Goldies for KNOM at the 2015 AK Broadcasters Conference

ABA Goldie Awards at KNOM Studios

We’re excited to announce that KNOM Radio AM-FM was among those honored at this weekend’s annual conference of the Alaska Broadcasters Association.

This year, ABA’s awards (their “Goldies”) shined the spotlight on KNOM’s news and public affairs programming, in particular — such as our flagship news program, our produced-in-house Alaska storytelling series, and our signature Iditarod coverage.

KNOM’s 2015 ABA Goldies (all, of course, in the “radio” category) are as follows; where possible, we’ve included links to the specific content that won the ABA award.
