From the GM’s Desk (April 2018)

“Early spring in Western Alaska can often be challenging. After the region has been operating many months in the darkness, the sharpness of the light can be striking. This is when KNOM’s constant presence is foundational. During the month of March, KNOM companions with each listener as mushers and their sled dog teams trek across the state. The race brings messages of hope, courage, joy, laughter, strong teamwork, and perseverance. As teams, families, and friends arise to these challenges, so do we journey to new life, both physically and spiritually into the Easter and spring seasons. Thank you for being a friend to Western Alaska, and being a companion in moments big and small.”
