Radio Giveaway Update

Help give radios to village listeners in Western Alaska, in celebration of five decades on the air.

To date, KNOM’s benefactors have designated more than $20,000 for radios for village residents – enough for around 400 radios.

With the help of a listener in Shishmaref, KNOM’s engineers found a cost-effective radio and antenna booster-combination that will catch KNOM’s signal. The staff is eager to start mailing them out later this spring, just in time for families to bring radios to fish camp for the summer.

Thank you for celebrating 50 years with KNOM!
