Kym BoladoCEO & Publisher
As the publisher and CEO of SHALE Magazine and the host of In the Oil Patch radio show, Kym Bolado has conducted more than 250 interviews with energy experts. With 25 years of entrepreneurial experience, Kym Bolado started SHALE Magazine in 2013 as a result of her interest in the economic development taking place in Texas. The magazine thrived early on and has seen exponential growth since. Along with the growth of the magazine, Bolado took on the new challenge of becoming a radio talk show host on In the Oil Patch. In the Oil Patch was started in 2015 on San Antonio’s KTSA 550 AM. Within six months the show was in syndication. The show now airs on iHeart’s KTRH 740 AM in Houston, the number one talk radio station in the U.S. The radio show also airs in major metropolitan areas in Texas including Dallas, Midland, San Antonio, Austin, and Corpus Christi, as well as parts of New Mexico, Louisiana, and Mexico.
