Clarissa Lynn has strong roots in North Dakota coming from a small, family farm operation north of Stanton or just a little south of Pick City by the Lake Sakakawea area where she did more bale haulin' and cow milkin' than fishin'; however, Clarissa grew up in a musical family loving and learning to dance to old time and country music.
Clarissa graduated from Dickinson State with a two-year broadcasting degree and a major in Elementary Education, later completing an Elementary Master's Degree from Northern State University, Aberdeen, SD and the University of Mary in Bismarck.
Clarissa has always made radio a part of her weekends and summers while teaching during the school year. Clarissa and her husband, Tom, who is an Ag salesman for Butler Machinery Company, enjoy family, friends, Clarissa's old '67 Chevy, Tom's Harley, German cooking, and lots of dancing and music, music, music....!
"The BEST part of radio is the people I've met through the years," she says, "What a blessing!"
