   Malaree Holland-Hepper – Senior Account Executive

Malaree was born and raised right here in Gillette, she graduated from CCHS in 2011. She has gained sales experience from four years of working in shoe stores and as a result has far too many shoes for her new husband’s liking.

A cute 1950’s fixer upper which they are currently renovating with no help from their two pups, Archie & Hyde, who have already dug up the backyard.

Kathy Paxton – Account Executive

Born in the Florida Panhandle, Kathy moved to Ten Sleep where her grandparents homesteaded when she was in high school. Kathy has since been a resident of Campbell County for more than 15 years.  Family is the most important thing (unless you include her chickens and dogs) and she still believes in Sunday dinners. She is a blended mom to 5 kids (and their spouses), Jake (Crystal), Samm (Kyle), Kris, Codi (Danny), and Dylan, and “Grammy” to 6: Jayden, Kayson, Kyloah, Jaylee, Lorena, & Lorenzo. And she can’t not include her ‘other half’ and best friend Jeff who makes life better daily.

Kathy loves the outdoors and everything included in it, but camping, riding 4 wheelers, fishing, and hunting are her favorites. Fully believing that there is no bad time to go camping. Winter time finds her watching sappy movies that she feels could never be watched too many times like “We are Marshall”, “Remember the Titans”, “Pretty Woman” and “Mrs. Doubtfire”.  Can you ever get enough of Euphegenia? Not unless you are spending time with Forrest.

The best advice I could give is to “buy the glitter”. Life is short and we should live it to the fullest. You never know what will happen tomorrow, so live your life and don’t let it pass you by.  In my case, I bought the glitter and then looked for a support group.

Whitney Peterson – Account Executive

Whitney loves getting to work with people and being involved within the community. She has always worked in Customer Service. Getting to connect with all kinds of different people and staying socially active is a true love of hers. To her, life’s greatest joys are spent with people and building relationships.

To Whitney, Basin Radio Network is part of what makes Gillette “home.” She remembers listening to The Fox with her family growing up and getting involved in all the activities of trivia games, having the entire family’s birthdays’ announced on air, her first kiss on the unwashed cheek by Neil McCoy and even being a contestant with her mother in the Watermelon Crawl….although she ended up disqualified… her mother walked away with Reba McEntire tickets.

Whitney is a Gillette local and loves the great community that we live in. To her, this is “home” and where she’s chosen to raise her children as well. Being a mother of two boys she feels lucky to being able to raise them in such a community. In her off time she spends time with her kids, staying busy, learning new things, always on an adventure of some sort and making memories to last a lifetime. So, living a life of happiness, love and laughter is the best blessings life has to offer her.
