Board Directives

Coinciding with KNOM’s 47th anniversary, the board of directors met in Nome for their quarterly meeting.

The board has wisely guided the transition of the radio mission from a self-supporting diocesan subsidiary to an independent Catholic nonprofit. Since the transition in 2012, the board has ensured close adherence to the mission’s values of being a friend and companion for listeners and providing respectful service based on Catholic ideals. They oversee the execution of KNOM’s mission: encountering Christ, embracing culture, empowering growth, and engaging the listener.
