Melia Jeanne has been living it up in KIX Country since the later part of 2014 and her role at Iowa’s Best Country, KIX 101.1 has evolved over time.
You used to hear her on The Morning KIX Start and now she stops in just after it each morning to play You Can’t Beat Melia with you the listener. Can you answer more questions right than she does?
Nowadays Melia does more work away from the microphone helping out the Sales staff by writing commercials and helping to get them produced. You will still hear her voice between the songs every once in a while.
When not working, Melia takes her dog for two walks a day rain or shine. She also loves to movies and binging shows and you can usually find her crafting when she has a spare hour or two.
