‘Dear Friend of KNOM…’ (Year-End 2018)

Dear Friend of KNOM,

The KNOM star atop the tower in the heart of Nome shines bright for the Advent and Christmas liturgical seasons. It’s a visual reminder of our hope in Christ during the darkest time of year in Western Alaska.

In a few years, KNOM will celebrate a half century of broadcasting. The mission has survived a myriad of challenges and remains an integral thread in the fabric of Western Alaska. Thank you for making KNOM “Yours for Western Alaska”!
