Kim Bindel is a WPFF Host and also covers the Morning News. She grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico just a few miles from the Ski Basin and attended college in Texas. Her first radio job was in Rapid City, South Dakota and within the last 13 years she has called Music City—Nashville, Tennessee—home. Her newest chapter has now begun here in Wisconsin.
In the 1980’s, Kim’s interests beyond big hair and legwarmers were theatre, choir and art, especially painting and sculpting. Now her interests are focused around her family. Kim is a busy mom with two adult daughters, Lauren and Alexia, and a son, Colton, who is a toddler.
Kim has been fascinated with the history of the Titanic since they discovered its resting place in the 1980’s. She was one of the first in line to see the movie. Her favorite season is fall. “I love the colors, the crisp air, piles of leaves, and the smell of apples and cinnamon,” Kim said.
One of Kim’s first jobs outside of radio was as a teacher’s aide for special needs children where she learned that the “value of a human being is not for what they do but for who they are.”
Since she is so new to Wisconsin, Kim has not had time to acclimate to Green and Gold quite yet. “I’ll come clean. Growing up, I would cheer for the Cowboys because who else are you going to cheer for when you live in New Mexico? Then 13 years ago when I moved to Nashville, the Titans were new to Tennessee and their trip to the Super Bowl was exciting right up until that last yard, so I have been a Titans fan for a long time,” Kim said. “But with this move, I have a feeling I will fall for the Green and Gold! How could you not?”
Kim is excited about Bethesda Broadcastings new mission statement—to impact people for Christ and equip them to put their faith into action. “It is my heart’s desire to point those around me to Jesus,” Kim said. “He is the One who opens our hearts to the gifts and talents that are uniquely meant for us- He does this for His own joy. We show Him our love by taking those talents and using them (and not wasting them) to worship Him and point those around us back to Him.”
