GM Update: Furnace and Doors at AM Site

As we are moving into spring, I wanted to share updates on our AM site doors and the furnace for the station. Currently, we’ve surpassed our goal of $5000 for the doors replacement. The furnace fund is sitting at approximately $10,000 of our $35,000 goal. I want to thank everyone that has generously donated to both of those as they’re both vital to our operations and staying safely on the air (not to mention warmly and dryly!). I appreciate all of you for your kindness and caring about our mission. It never ceases to amaze me how many people care about our little ol’ radio station in Nome, Alaska! If you would like to learn more about what the funds are going to be used for, you can find the specific appeals on our website at https://knom.org/give-2/. I’m also always happy to speak to donors over the phone should you like a phone call to learn more.

Peace and blessings,

Miranda B. Musich, General Manager
