“KNOM’s birthday each year is a time for gratitude, reflection, and humility. The awards and photos that line the walls of the station, the stories told, the sacrifices, and the memories belong to each of us, brought together as the KNOM family. Thank you for making another year of KNOM possible. Happy 48 years to you! Blessings today and always. Many more years to come.”

Margaret A. DeMaioribus
General Manager
