KFOR Announcer Cathy Blythe is a Lincoln native, graduating in 1967 from Lincoln Southeast and later attending Kearney State College, where she majored in Elementary Education.
Since 1972 when Cathy was hired as the receptionist at KFOR, radio has been a passion. She went on to be music director, dabbled in sales and ultimately went on to co-host the KFOR Morning Show with Scott Young in September of 1982, a position she still holds with current co-host Dave Hilligoss.
Cathy is a two-time Marconi winner, the highest award in broadcasting given by the National Association of Broadcasters.
Her “Problems & Solutions” talk show has been on the air since 1991.
Cathy and her husband Wayne have been married 25 years and daughter Molly and her husband Jordan live in Fargo, North Dakota. Cathy still enjoys playing the piano for a variety of area events, singing, emceeing, speaking - and for pure recreation….reading.
Cathy’s greatest joys in her job come from interacting with our listeners and sponsors – and having the opportunity to work with the best people in the business!
Dave was born and raised in Lincoln. After graduating from Lincoln East High
School in 1980, he attended UNL, playing trumpet in the Cornhusker Marching
Band and receiving his degree in Journalism.
Dave started at KFOR in 1985 writing and producing commercials, and covering the 6pm to midnight shift several evenings a week. Dave went part-time in 1990, when his first son was born, so he could become a stay-at-home-dad. During that period he worked every air-shift at one time or another, filling in for sick or vacationing airstaff. We convinced him to work 5 days a week in 2007. He invested several years hosting KFOR's Afternoon Show. Today you will find Dave co-hosting the KFOR Morning Show, Monday through Friday, from 5:00am to 9:00am.
Dave and his wife Connie have two sons; Wade, a UNL graduate, and Bradley, a current student at UNL. Dave and Connie also own Sign Pro. Dave's free time is spent cheering on his boys in their school activities, riding his motorcycle, playing golf, strumming his guitar, and serving in his church.
Dave says he's thrilled to be a part of KFOR's heritage. "Like many listeners, I have grown up listening to KFOR. I'm very aware of its rich tradition and history in the community. It's an honor to be a part of it and to visit with you daily. Thanks for
making KFOR a part of your life."
