Melissa is a born-and-raised Calgarian with a passion for music, travel, cooking and style.
There’s nothing this news junkie likes more than a Saturday afternoon hunting for new additions to her record collection, or a lazy Sunday watching Food Network Canada.
Melissa graduated from SAIT Polytechnic with a Broadcast News diploma and immediately began working as a news anchor and producer at 660News. After more than five years at the all-news radio station, Melissa left to join Global Calgary where she works as an Online Reporter.
Memorable moments in Melissa’s life include interviewing actress and musician Juliette Lewis, meeting Chef Gordon Ramsay and being in a London pub when news of singer Amy Winehouse’s death broke.
