A Note From a Listener

On November 22, the KNOM business office received a thank you letter from a village listener who received a radio and booster in the mail.

If you gave to the “$50 for 50 years” radio giveaway, this letter is for you.

“I was pleasantly surprised to receive an unexpected gift from KNOM.
Entertainment, broadcast news, and the weather is what we rely on during all seasons.
For work or pleasure, listening to the radio is the way to go. Again, Thank you and Quyana.
