Meet KGAB Reporter – Amy Richards

Townsquare Media

I was raised in New York, for the first few years in the city, and then my family moved to a small 3-acre spot in upstate New York.

I graduated from the State University of New York with a Bachelors in English Literature, and a minor concentration in Communications.

In college, I was the opinions editor for the campus newspaper and program director for the campus radio station. After college, I moved to Los Angeles where I worked for several attorneys as well as a publishing house.

My first on-air paying job was in Reno, Nevada. I think I was a Saturday night fill-in and back-up for news. I moved on to several other radio jobs in the Reno/Lake Tahoe market.

I hosted a public affairs show at a station in Lake Tahoe–where I learned to hone my interview editing skills. I worked as a news director and weekend fill-in at a station in Jackson, Wyoming.

I was a membr of the President’s press pool both times President Clinton vacationed in Jackson.  It was fun.

Eventually I found my way to Cheyenne and was hired at KingFM, Cowboy Country and KGAB in 2000. I also co-hosted the Morning Zone with Dave Chaffin from 2001 to about 2008. Then I went full-time news. I have also been the Legislative reporter for the group since 2000.

What’s your most memorable news story?
It was on 9-11. I was hosting the Morning Zone on KGAB that day, and will never forget all the things that happened and how difficult it was to try and stay calm while it seemed the world was spinning out of control. I also have family in the New York area.

What’s your favorite color?

What’s your favorite sport?
I like baseball better than any other sport. My favorite team is of course the New York Yankess, but I root for the Colorado Rockies, too.

In addition to providing on-air commentary for KGAB 650AM, Amy writes for the KGAB website and KGAB Facebook page.
