Caught Doing Something Good: Ellie Martinson

The Tempest, directed by Gabe Colombo in Nome, 2018.

Welcome to Caught Doing Something Good, where KNOM shines the spotlight on youth in Western Alaska. Every month, we interview students from the region and chat about the things they’ve been doing to positively impact their community.

This month we feature Ellie Martinson of Nome, who shares her love of music with KNOM.

Caught Doing Something Good is an interview series focused on the youth of Western Alaska; the program will be available on this website and broadcast live on the last Saturday and Sunday of every month at 12noon and 5pm on KNOM (96.1 FM, 780 AM). (Previous episodes are still available; listen to them online here.)
