A Golden Accolade

Good news!

Late last year, KNOM AM/FM won an Alaska Broadcasters Association “Goldie” Award for coverage of the 2016 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. The winning entry was the live finish and interview of Nome musher Melissa Owens Stewart, conducted by 2015-2016 volunteer producer Maddie Winchester.

As always, we share this award with all of those who make KNOM’s mission and programming possible. Congratulations to Maddie — and to you!
