“YOURS FOR WESTERN ALASKA”

‘Dear Friend of KNOM…’ (End-of Year 2019)

When KNOM first signed on the air in 1971, the staff was all volunteer. The station was a proving ground for young broadcasters and future church leaders. Listeners were very forgiving as volunteers not only learned their craft, but also adjusted to the life and culture of the rural Arctic.

Today, the radio staff is a blend of permanent staff and volunteers who commit to a transformative year or more of service, making the most of teachable moments.

Volunteers bring their talents, enthusiasm, and greenness to the mission and are stretched and grow professionally, personally, and spiritually as they adapt to service so far from home. Do you know of a college graduate, or soon-to-be graduate, who may be interested in applying for the 2020/21 service year?

Thank you for supporting a mission of service in Western Alaska.
