    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!!!

  • 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
