Betty Ries| Executive Director

EMAIL (970) 241.8801 x 207

Moving to the Grand Valley a 10 years ago to escape the craziness of Denver and to be near her family, Betty left her job in Network Radio to participate in her family’s Wine business. Having been told that once you’re in Radio you can’t ever leave, she was enthusiastically drawn back in when she found KAFM.  When Betty’s not dividing her time between Radio and Wine she likes gardening, movies and learning how to photograph the beautiful landscape that surrounds us here in Western Colorado.

Katie Meyering | Program Director

EMAIL (970) 241.8801 x 223

Growing up in LA and listening to local radio stations, Katie cut her teeth on stations like KLOS, KMET, KissFM, PirateRadio and in San Diego it was the KGB. It was a natural move for her to be in media as a living.  Katie spent the last 30 years (or so...) in magazines, newspapers, radio and internet marketing, advertising, list procurer,  manager of 5 radio stations and accounting at any point in her career.

During that time Katie raised her family, moving the the Grand Valley in 2006. Katie married Paul in 2013 and together they share 6 kids, 6 grands and one great grand.  In their spare time, when they are not spoiling the littles they love to cook together.  Katie is an avid painter, maker of lotions, lip balms - you name it.

Katie's love of music and her condition of musical turrets made her a perfect fit for the Program Director and on air announcer.

To become a Programmer on KAFM, or to get your local organization on air, please contact Katie!
