    Grant Kath and his wife Stephanie purchased KGOS/KERM in 2009.   Even with his enormously busy schedule as owner/operator of Kath Broadcasting, Grant also heads up the sales department and loves to be a part of the sports side of the station’s broadcasts, taking part in bringing games to our listeners with the area’s football, basketball and baseball teams. Grant’s father Kerm owned the stations years ago and Grant has been in the business since he was 14 – finally bringing it back into the family once again with the purchase in 2009.  Grant and Stephanie have two children, daughter Taylor and son Ryan.  Contact Grant at his e-mail address at This email address is being protected from spambots.

     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!

    Like many people in the office, KGOS/KERM is a part of Lynn Schukei’s past and present.  After a 20 year hiatus from radio, Lynn has come back to the business.  She says she missed it and loved working at KGOS/KERM back in the day and is enjoying every minute being back with the Kath family once again.  Lynn hosts Today in Valley (as she did back when) at 10:00AM Monday through Friday and wears her other hat as Office Manager when not writing and producing commercials or helping out wherever needed.  Advertisers can be rest assured their ads will be heard as she handles all scheduling of commercials, plus sends out the billing–making sure we stay on the air to entertain our listeners!!!  Lynn is married to retired COL Gordon Schukei. They have five children, Jon, Jason, Angela, Lucas and Kailyn and are known as Oma and Opa to seven grandchildren whom they adore.  E-mail Lynn at This email address is being protected from spambots.

    Moving here from the busy city of Fort Collins, CO, Marie Flanagan has easily become a valued member of the Kath Broadcasting family. Working hard at learning a completely new business as a KGOS/KERM sales representative, Marie makes sure our older and regular clients are happy with their advertising dollar while bringing in new clients each and every day.  Not only is Marie kept busy with sales, but she has learned how to write and produce copy AND even learned how to engineer games during our busy basketball season. Always happy to “pitch” in Marie really enjoys the world of radio!  Marie and her husband Brandon have two young daughters Caitlyn and Lexie.  E-mail Marie at This email address is being protected from spambots.

    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.

  • Dear Listener

    28 March 2012

    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.

    Sincerely, 

    Grant Kath

    Tammy Powell – Powell Title & Escrow

    Hi, this is Tammy Powell with Powell Title and Escrow. I think your Radio Station ROCKS!! 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. We know advertising with KGOS/KERMis effective because we’ve had direct results from listeners in this area. Radio has given Powell Title & Escrow results.

    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.

    Listener

    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!!!
