“YOURS FOR WESTERN ALASKA”

From the GM’s Desk… (August 2020)

General Manager Margaret DeMaioribus and engineer Les Brown recently drove to Salmon Lake to conduct field intensity meter readings. These quarterly tests can reveal signal changes. No problems were found.

KNOM is God’s mission fully alive. Regardless of the length of time we are here, we are all taking part in stewarding KNOM to pass on to the next generation of listeners, volunteers, and KNOM family.

I have been truly humbled during my tenure as general manager. Our KNOM family has devoted hearts of service, offering sacrifices for our brothers and sisters, many whom we’ve never even met. While I must depart to care for my own family at this time, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this opportunity to live out God’s call in my life. You remain in my prayers each day as I travel back east. God bless you always.

With love,

Margaret A. DeMaioribus
