Well-known in the Twin Cities community, Roland Minda is a longtime public relations professional who, with his wife and partner, Merle Minda, operated their own agency, Minda Associates, for thirty years. His wide circle of contacts, friends and acquaintances, matched with his quizzical sense of curiosity and whimsy, add to the program's appeal.

Roland hosted and produced "Strictly Seniors" for over 10 years, since 2000. The program has won numerous awards and much media attention. Major coverage has included the Minnesota Sun Newspapers; Minneapolis Star Tribune, Southwest Journal; Format Magazine; Skyway News, American Jewish World, and Hill & Lake Press.

In June 2002, the program took first place in the senior category of the Alliance for Community Media's national competition. The Alliance's annual contest, the Hometown Video Festival, is the largest national video competition for local television cable programming in the United States and Canada. Roland often serves as host and moderator for community programs and events, such as the Minneapolis Senior Center in downtown Minneapolis.

Minda was honored as the recipient of the Public Relations Society of America's Donald G. Padilla Award for his 35 years of community service. Minda has served on the boards of the Animal Humane Society, the American Red Cross, the American Lung Association, Temple Israel, and the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), among others.

Roland was born in Minneapolis, growing up in the Kenwood/Lowry Hill neighborhood. He is a graduate of West High School, Minneapolis, and Princeton University, with a degree from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. He served in the U.S. Army in World War II, in New Guinea and the Philippines.
