Melissa Jensen is a Capital High School graduate and long-time Montana journalist. She started her career in broadcast journalism in Missoula in 1996, working as a studio camera operator while attending the University of Montana.
Since that time, she worked in Great Falls and Billings, went back to Missoula and earned her master’s degree while student teaching, and returned home to Helena to work and raise her family.
Melissa loves finding the stories that tell us more about where we’ve come from as a state and a community, focusing on the history that made us what we are today.
She also enjoys reporting on what is happening in our schools, to highlight the accomplishments of our local students and the important people who devote their lives to education. She is the proud mother of three boys and wife to David.
