While attending UA, Madelyne was a reporter and anchor on their campus news show: Lights, Camera Akron. She has two student Emmy's from her time there. During her last semester of college, Madelyne interned for the NBC affiliate in Cleveland, WKYC. After graduation, she was offered a reporter/weekend anchor position at NBC affiliate WHIZ in Zanesville. She spent her first year in the industry there before joining the KIMT team.
In her free time, you can find Madelyne exploring new places in Minnesota with her dog, Nora, spending time with friends and family or trying to stay active with boxing. Madelyne is excited to learn more about the Minnesota-Iowa community and tell their stories!
