The quiet cast of a fly line cures writer’s block for Tight Line Media CEO Kris Millgate. Many of her production ideas come from the time she spends in the outdoors.

Kris has a bachelor’s degree in mass communication from the University of Utah with an emphasis in broadcast journalism. She landed her first TV news job before graduating from college and now the award winning reporter has 10 years of experience and several cross country moves to prove she’ll go anywhere for a good story.

She started her own production company, Tight Line Media in 2006. She wanted to freelance for several media outlets rather than be bound by contract to just one. Colleagues said, “You can’t do it. There’s not enough freelance work for you to survive.” Kris’s ability to master many multi-media skills proves otherwise.

Tight Line Media produces quality journalistic content for print, radio and TV. It also produces quality commercial content for corporations, government entities and non-profits. Kris understands every aspect of a production for any purpose making sure clients are satisfied with their project from the first word to the final edit.
