Grady Kirkpatrick

Program Director and Wyoming Sounds Host

Grady has taken a circuitous route from his hometown of Kansas City to Wyoming. Sometime after the London Bridge had fallen down, he moved to Arizona and attended Arizona State University and actually graduated from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. ("He's a Lumberjack and he's OK……..!") He began his radio career in Prescott in 1982 and eventually returned to Kansas City where he continued in radio through the summer of 1991. Public Radio and the Commonwealth of Kentucky beckoned him to the bluegrass state where he worked as Operations/Program Manager at WKMS in Murray and WNKU in Highland Heights just across the Ohio from Cincinnati.

After 16 great years in Kentucky, Grady & Cheryl packed the family (2 kids, 2 cats, and a dog) and headed for Wyoming in the middle of winter to hire on as Music Director for Wyoming Public Media. He hosted Morning Music and now Wyoming Sounds and was also hired as Program Director. Besides radio, Grady has worked in construction and likes to play outdoors (camp, fish, bike, hike, ski, golf). He loves music, of course, traveling, stargazing and American history.
