I moved to Montana in 1979 from Cincinnati, Ohio. I started doing play-by-play in 1982 in Billings. I began working at my current job in December 1985 and have never left. I have been on Cat Country mornings since the show started in March 1988. In addition to my on-air job, I own and operate a wheat and cattle ranch north of Billings. I am most proud of my four children.
I was born and raised in Great Falls and grew up listening to my dad on KMON AM where he was the morning guy. Dad also had a band that would practice at our house for the jobs they played almost every weekend. So, my exposure to country music was huge. At the State Fair in Great Falls in 1971, dad emceed all of the concerts so my sister Michelle, who would also follow us to on-air work, and I got to sit in the front row for Anne Murray, Glen Campbell and the Carpenters
A Montana native I started my Radio career in 1984 and have always been passionate about the industry. In my off time I enjoy spending time with my Husband Brett and our two kids, our son Triston and our daughter Bailey. I love to read, play sports and spend time at our family cabin in the Big Horn Mountains.

Every time he gets in front of the microphone, Bob Kingsley adds to his status as the most listened-to radio voice in country music history. The Host and Executive Producer of Bob Kingsley's Country Top 40, far and away the most successful show of its kind, has been the king of the country countdown for three decades now, and to hear him tell it, the process retains every bit of its magic."I love the music and the people who make it," he says, "and I want our listeners to have as much insight into both as it's possible to give them, and to make the experience as enjoyable as possible
I was born in the southern U.S. and raised by a 21 year Marine Corps Vietnam Vet and his hard working, successful, Tennessee born bride. They set the bar pretty high for their three kids...so I decided to just walk under it and go into radio at age 16. After years of "town to town, up and down the dial", I made my way to Billings in 2005. That turned out to be the best decision I ever made. It lead to a great job, and the love of my life, my daughter, Eliana
If you would have asked me a year ago if I would move from beautiful Seattle to Billings, MT, I probably would have said no because the state of Montana was not even on my radar! Originally from San Antonio, TX, my family and I moved to Oregon when I was 5 years old. Both of my parents were in the United States Air Force stationed in San Antonio (and many other places all over the world) and after I was born, decided to retire. 22 years of service each! I spent all of my life from there growing up in Aumsville, OR
