KNOM Radio: We’re Yours, for Western Alaska

KNOM exists to broadcast faith, inspiration, news, and education through radio to listeners in villages across 100,000 miles of the Western Alaskan bush, from the Yukon Delta to the Bering Strait.

As the oldest Catholic radio station in the United States, KNOM broadcasts the evening Rosary and Chaplet of Divine Mercy as well as weekly Sunday Mass.

Our programming highlights the indigenous cultures of Western and Northern Alaska. For example, you can click the link to listen to our award-winning show Elder Voices, which highlights the stories of Alaska Native elders.

KNOM’s mission is founded on the values of being a friend and companion to listeners and providing respectful service that is based on Catholic ideals. Our mission statement is encountering Christ, embracing culture, empowering growth, and engaging the listener.

Every day, listeners share what’s happening in their home village, their region, state, and nation. KNOM’s ministry is built on the pillars of Faith, Inspiration, News, and Education.
