Recently I sat down with Christina Muñoz Madsen a wife, mother, and entrepreneur. Before launching her own PR and marketing firm in 2018, she was the Associate Vice President of Communications, Public Relations, and Marketing for the University of Central Arkansas.
You may know her best, though, from her time as an anchor KATV, Channel 7. She co-anchored one of the state’s most-watched newscasts for nine years and was recognized as Arkansas’ most popular news anchor.
Born and raised in Yankton, South Dakota, she started out as a radio broadcaster at 1450 KYNT in Yankton at the age of 15.
This is Part 1 of her story on the winding path that led her from the plains of South Dakota, to the Great Lakes and finally, to the Natural State.
Don't miss Part II of her story next week where she reveals what made her angry at Arkansas, the pull to leave and what made her stay.
