“Dear Friend,” (February 2021)

Western Alaskans are not easily impressed by money, fame, or shine: things people elsewhere spend lifetimes chasing. They are hardy, practical people who, first and foremost, care for one another.

The same is true for KNOM. The mission innovates for long-term benefit, with an eye toward sustainability and service to listeners. The mission is evaluated on service and not on being the first, the brightest, or most sensational.

For KNOM, success means following our values: living out Catholic ideals with respectful service, as a friend and companion – to all who encounter the radio ministry.

Thank you for your faithfulness to KNOM!
