The KNOM Radio Mission regretfully announces that Inuraaq Evans recently stepped down from the role of General Manager. The Board of Directors remains impressed with her vision and enthusiasm for positive growth in the region, and we look forward to seeing her wonderful accomplishments in the future.

The Board is pleased to announce that long-time Nome resident Miranda Musich has accepted the offer of serving as General Manager and is already on the job and making positive impacts. Miranda has lived in Nome most of her life and has a small farm a few miles outside of the city limits where she and her husband have horses, chickens, dogs, and cats.

Miranda possesses a strong background in management and prior to joining KNOM, worked at UAFNorthwest Campus as a professor of applied business. Miranda brings with her extensive connections throughout the region and the state, as well as a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership with an emphasis on Human Resource Development and an undergraduate degree in Business Administration, Criminal Justice Administration, Psychology, and General studies.

“I am very goal and team-oriented,” offered Miranda, “and that reflects in how I guide and lead others. My aspirations while in this position are to not only create a fully-staffed and cohesive team but to also start expanding on the important and regionally/culturally relevant activities that KNOM is already offering.”

Having grown up with KNOM in the background, Miranda understands the significance of tradition while advancing the Mission.

“It is also of importance to me to continue to honor the KNOM values of being a friend and companion to our listeners, ensuring we always offer respectful service through diverse programming, and observing the Catholic ideals that have been at the core of the station since its inception. I am excited about all of the possibilities, and I am honored that the KNOM board has selected me to lead the organization.”

The Board of Directors looks forward to the continued growth of the KNOM Radio Mission under Miranda’s leadership and the continued dedication and compassion of the station staff members. Miranda may be reached at 907-443-5221 or GeneralManager@knom.org.


From Miranda Musich, in her own words:

“Greetings! My name is Miranda Musich, and I hail from Nome, Alaska. I have lived in Nome

most of my life, but I have been fortunate to have traveled and lived in Europe and several

Lower-48 states. My husband and I have a small farm a few miles outside of city limits,

where we have horses, chickens, dogs, and cats. Until the acceptance of this position, I

worked at UAF-Northwest Campus as a professor of applied business. I bring to this role not

only extensive connections throughout the region and the state, but a Master’s Degree in

Organizational Leadership with an emphasis on Human Resource Development, and

undergraduate degrees in Business Administration, Criminal Justice Administration,

Psychology, and General studies.

I am very goal and team-oriented, and that reflects in how I guide and lead others. My

aspirations while in this position are to not only create a fully-staffed and cohesive team but

to also start expanding on the important and regionally/culturally relevant activities that

KNOM is already offering. It is also of importance to me to continue to honor the KNOM

values of being a friend and companion to our listeners, ensuring we always offer

respectful service through diverse programming, and observing the Catholic ideals that have

been at the core of the station since its inception. I am excited about all of the possibilities,

and I am honored that the KNOM board has selected me to lead the organization.”
