BRANSON, Mo. – After months of searching, the City of Branson has found its new communications manager.
A former news anchor and field reporter for KSPR and KY3 News in Springfield, Melody Pettit says she believes her nearly 15 years of experience as a news journalist will transfer nicely as she dives into the role of communications manager:
Pettit also shares what her initial focus will be as she gets started in her new role:
Pettit earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism from Brigham Young University in Utah. She then worked as a news reporter and anchor for several years in both Nebraska and Kansas.
Approximately five years ago, Pettit says she took a job at KSPR in Springfield in order to return to her home state of Missouri and be closer to family in the Springfield area.
