Greg Kath is our morning show host and brother to Grant. Not to be outdone by the years Grant has put into the business, Greg has been a part of KGOS/KERM since he was 13 – starting out with working for his father Kerm and now his brother. That makes it 37 years and counting in the business! Not too many people can claim that many years in radio, except perhaps his good friend Evan Slack. Greg can be heard live starting at 6:00 in the morning until 10:00, plus whenever needed, he engineers many of the sporting events carried on AM 1490 KGOS or KERM-FM 98.3.
Dick Fullmer is our Sports Director, hosting local sports programs at 7:30AM and 12:40PM – Monday through Friday. He jokingly tells people that he has retired several times now. You might recognize him because, well, he knows everybody. Dick is a retired school teacher, worked for Goshen County, as a Victim Advocate, Goshen County Chamber Director and at Eastern Wyoming College as their Community Education Coordinator. Besides his regular show, Dick can be heard as color commentator on many of the sporting events carried on KGOS/KERM. Dick has been a part of the “family” with Kath Broadcasting since 1997. Dick and his wife Pat are the proud parents of three grown sons Steve, Mike and Ed – but more importantly Dick’s a VERY proud Grandpa!
Taylor Kath, Grants’s daughter, is an added benefit to the staff during the summer months as she helps with engineering duties, writing and producing copy and anything else we feel like throwing at her. Taylor also helps with gathering news stories and updating Facebook. Taylor is well-known around the community since she is on-staff as a dance instructor at the 28th Avenue Dance Studio.

KGOS has been on the air since 1949. In 1953, at just 18, my father Kerm Kath purchased his beloved KGOS Radio. In 1977, added an FM Signal to Goshen County. It seemed only fitting that it bear his name–KERM.
I’m Kerm’s youngest son. I grew up in radio. After my father’s passing in 1982, the family sold the stations in 1995. I stayed involved with KGOS/KERM and am happy to say that I was able to purchase the AM & FM stations in January 2009–and return them to the Kath family.
Since the purchase, we have made many additions–bringing back local news, Today in the Valley, adding this website and much more. But I am most proud of returning the station’s local touch. We are connected to the community and having fun again.
We love what we do and hope you do too.

You’ve changed your programming and what you’ve played to meet the needs of this community and I wouldn’t advertise with any other Radio Station.

Gary Olson – Olson Tire Company
Hi, this is Gary Olson with Olson Tire Company in Torrington, Wyoming. I would like to urge everybody to consider the use of Kath Broadcasting and KGOS/KERM on any of their advertising messages they need to get out to the local public. Olson Tire has had great success in marketing our product, our tires and our automotive services and in general just getting the message out that we’re on South Main and we are open for business and we are looking to help the public in any way that we can.
I just really like the fact that all of the local information we are getting, all of the voices that we are hearing now are familiar, I am just really enjoying the way everything is going. I am excited to hear about the sports that are coming up and enjoying all the coverage that’s local and the news at 7:20 and it has local information, I really enjoy that. I listen to “Today in the Valley” and I listen from the time I wake up at 6:00 and listen all morning, I like everything now!
Isabel Hoy – Goshen County Library
We had many, many people who donated items to us and then we had great buyers showing up and we also had really good coverage by the KGOS radio station, we do think that made a difference. In the past the station has been very gracious and given some PA’s but this time we decided to go ahead and step up to the plate and get some advertising and I know that our Book Sale Chairman commented she thought it really made a huge difference, it was Terrific!!!

"COACH" VERL PETSCH TO RETIRE
"Coach" Verl Petsch has announced his retirement from Eastern Wyoming College at the end of this academic year. The long, time coach and athletic director has spent 43 years at EWC, coaching,teaching, and overseeing the college's athletic programs.
Coach developed the volleyball program in the 1970's and served as the head coach for 40 years. During that time he compiled 1085 wins to 699 losses and won six Region lX championships. The Lady Lancers went to the nation juco volleyball tournament seven times (once at-large bid) and had three fifth place finishes at nationals. They also placed eighth twice.
Over the 40 years, the volleyball program has had nineteen athletic All-American players and seventy-seven academic All-Americans with two possible this year.
Verl began the athletic director duties in the fall of 1979, giving him 34 years in that capacity. And five years during his tenure he helped establish and coach women's basketball at EWC.
