Alissa Willard was born on the Grand Forks Air force base, just outside of Grand Forks North Dakota. She graduated from Bismarck High School and continued her studies at North Dakota State University, as well as the Ohio Center for Broadcasting Colorado Campus.
For as long as Alissa can remember, she has had her sights set on a career in news. Her curiosity of life, the world around her and public service are what brought her to study communications at North Dakota State. Her drive for something different and a chance at better internship possibilities led her to Colorado. There she interned at Denver's Fox 31 for the Martino TV show from July 2010 until December 2010. During this time she also co-hosted an online radio show through the broadcasting school and free lanced as talent, model, grip and writer for Charmed Life Productions in Denver.
Alissa loves to be around friends and family as much as possible. In her free time she enjoys journaling, listening to music, the outdoors and anything that gets her out in the sun during the summer. She has been a choir singer and dancer for the majority of her life and she pursed both through college.
Alissa joined NTV in September of 2012 as the morning Assistant News Producer. She is extremely excited to be branching out as a reporter and looks forward to covering the stories that matter most to the community and viewers.
