Moving to the Grand Valley a couple of 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.
