Wasilla's Country Legends

Kathy Mitchell

  • Monday-Friday 6:00am-10:00am

Kathy and her husband have lived in the Valley since 1992, raising all three of their kids in the Palmer area. Her favorite thing about living in the Valley is the people and “her glacier”, the Knik Glacier.

A life long Alaskan, Kathy began her career in 1983 at KYAK 650-AM in Anchorage at the age of 16 and has been with Country Legends since the beginning and was the one who signed us on the air the very first day.  A fan of the Outlaw Country movement, her favorite Classic Country artist is Waylon Jennings.

She is an animal lover and has raised Rottweilers since 1991 and added a couple cats to the menagerie back in 2011. Outside of her family and pets, she tries to actively give back to the community by helping with various non-profits.  She is a Palmer Lion and currently works with THRIVE Mat-Su, and sits on the United Way of Mat-Su’s board of directors.
