What I Learned on My Grade School Playground!
Kim Monson grew up in western Kansas and has a deep appreciation for rural America. She attended the University of Kansas.
Kim moved to Colorado with the belief that with hard work and perseverance, anything is possible in America. And it is. Kim began work as a bank teller in Longmont. A few years later, she went to work with a small stock brokerage firm as a stock trading assistant. Studying at night and on week-ends, Kim passed her Series 7 exam and shortly thereafter, went to work with Boettcher and Company as an investment broker. Within a few years, she became one of the youngest vice-presidents at the firm. Kim retired from the investment business when the second of her three children was born and has worked in the women’s apparel business for many years. In 2013 she began her broadcasting career as one of three “Americhicks” on KLZ 560 AM with a broadcast reach into Wyoming, Kansas, New Mexico and west to the mountains. At the end of 2018, Kim became a solo act, hence The Kim Monson Show was born. The show broadcasts live M-F, 6-7am and is rebroadcast 10-11pm on KLZ 560 AM. Show recaps and podcasts can be found on www.kimmonson.com.
With the rampant divisiveness in America today, The Kim Monson Show dissects issues using the litmus test of “Freedom vs Force and Force vs Freedom.” Surveys show that most Americans, (Blue dog Democrats, Unaffiliateds, Libertarians, Conservatives and Republicans), value the American Idea of each individual pursuing their God given Rights of Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness. Kim promises to honestly, and with increased clarity, bring forth issues that affect you and those you love. We are in this “Battle of Ideas” together and Kim is dedicated to helping you understand the issues so that you can engage in thoughtful dialogue with friends, family, colleagues and neighbors.
In 2016, Kim traveled with a group, organized by the Denver Police Activities League, that accompanied four D-Day Veterans to Normandy, France for the 72nd anniversary of D-Day and the beginning of western Europe’s liberation from Hitler’s rule. Kim returned to the states realizing that our veteran’s stories need to be heard. Hence the WWII Project was created. Kim has interviewed over 120 WWII Veterans. Her radio show, America’s Veteran’s Stories with Kim Monson highlights Veteran’s stories from all wars and conflicts plus peacetime service.
