KNOM Wants You… or Someone You Know

KNOM is currently accepting applications for 2017-2018 volunteer fellowship positions.

Interested recent or soon-to-be college graduates are encouraged to begin the process online. No broadcasting experience is necessary. We welcome a variety of degrees.

“I’ve never seen anything like what we have here,” says news volunteer Davis Hovey, who adds his name to the long list of “KNOMers.” Altogether, KNOM volunteers have contributed the equivalent of nearly 500 years of full-time service since the 1960s, when the mission began preparations to go on the air.
