Allison Lightfield


My love for radio started when I interned at KXLG radio in Watertown, SD the summer of my Junior year of College.  I loved working with local businesses and getting to be so involved in my community.  I graduated college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communication and an emphasis in Advertising and Public Relations from the University of South Dakota.  I went on to work for Radio FM Media in Fargo ND.  I started as a sales assistant and jumped at the first opportunity to start in sales shortly after.  Selling 6 radio stations in a growing market taught me so much.  I left Fargo to join Leighton Broadcasting after two years.  I’ve been a marketing partner for Leighton Broadcasting for five years.  With leadership as one of my long term goals, I was ready for my next move to become the St. Cloud Sales Manager.  I love my team and learning new things every day!

Why You Love Your Work: 

Working with everyone at Leighton is the number one reason why I love this job.  Our culture and day-to-day interaction fills me up and keeps me motivated. Radio is such a fun industry to work in, so closely with the music industry and local businesses. Helping others be successful, co-workers and clients, is the most rewarding part of what I do.  I feel pretty lucky to have found my dream job! 

Personal motto:

Work hard and be kind.

Favorite song of all-time & why:

“Roll Me Away” by Bob Seger because the lyrics are poetic and in my opinion, the meaning symbolizes our journey through life.
