From the GM’s Desk (May 2018)

“‘We stand on the shoulders of all who have come before us.’ This is a phrase uttered regularly at KNOM. The truth in this quote identifies not only KNOM’s history, but also that of Western Alaska. Broadcasting powerful stories of ancestors, elders, and cultural traditions in the region are integral to our mission, and now, voices like Arlene Soxie and Robert Keith are paving the way for youth, finding ways to adapt amidst a changing landscape. You, too, are the shoulders we stand on every day, continuing to open wide the horizons for connection, hope, and faith today and for future generations. Thank you!”

Margaret A. DeMaioribus,
General Manager
