Melissa Van Fleet


Vice President and Agent

Melissa Van Fleet joined Ken Lindner & Associates in 2004. As Vice President and agent in both the news and programming departments at KLA, she has the privilege of representing some of the brightest and most talented journalists and hosts in news and entertainment. Melissa has negotiated employment contracts on behalf of her clients on network, cable, digital platforms, nationally syndicated and local market stations, including CNN, MSNBC, Entertainment Tonight, E.W. Scripps syndication, BET, E! Entertainment News, Litton Entertainment, Inside Edition.

Prior to joining KLA, Melissa worked in film and television production in Los Angeles. During that time, she was introduced to the agency by a prominent entertainment news executive. It was clear from that first meeting that KLA was a company that valued integrity and hard work as much as they respected talent. Nearly two decades later, Melissa still believes those qualities set KLA apart from any other agency.

A native Hoosier, Melissa graduated from Bethel University in South Bend, IN. As a foster/adoptive family, she has been active with several foster care non-profits, including CarePortal Los Angeles and Foster All.  Melissa and her husband live in Nashville, TN with their four children.
