Melinda Lee is a 6' 3" storyteller with high-reaching goals to connect with viewers, bring stories closer to home, and make a difference in her community. She joined the KULR-8 team as a reporter in June of 2015.

Melinda was born and raised in the Christmas-themed town of North Pole, Alaska. She has also lived in the states of Vermont, and Washington, where she graduated the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication.

Melinda reported stories as a backpack journalist in Cuba during the summer of 2014. While at Washington State University, she covered Cougar varsity and club teams and was awarded an NATAS Emmy Award, College Broadcasters Inc (CBI), and SPJ Award for her sports journalism. During her final semester, KREM 2 News in Spokane hired Melinda as an MMJ reporter.

In her first year with KULR-8, the Montana Broadcaster's Association awarded Melinda an E.B. Craney for first place in Breaking News. In her second year, she was selected to call Montana's rival college games, The Brawl of the Wild series, LIVE on SWX.

When she isn't busy reporting, Melinda is still out chasing her curiosity, meeting new people, trying new things, and striving to learn as much as she can. She loves food, friends, family, the outdoors, animals, videography, and losing her voice while cheering on her favorite teams.
