Melissa Amundson


I attended North Dakota State University where I earned my BA in Mass Communication. Upon graduation, I worked in television advertising sales in Minneapolis for about ten years. In 2014, our family moved to Alexandria where I joined KXRA as an Account Executive. Since then, I’ve been promoted to Voice of Alexandria Operations Manager and now General Sales Manager. I can’t imagine doing anything else!

Why you love your work:

There are so many reasons! The main one is being able to coach our team through their successes and seeing them thrive. Plus helping our clients go from being a good local businesses to an amazing brand!

Personal Motto:

Always look for the positive in everything!

Favorite Song of All-time and Why:

Wagon Wheel by Darius Rucker. It makes me want to sing along and dance. I can’t listen without being put in a good mood!
