Melissa Sheketoff has returned back to the Channel 3 newsroom. You may recognize her as she was an intern, then associate producer and finally our Plattsburgh reporter a few years ago. Now, she is our morning anchor and reporter.
Melissa started at WCAX in 2011, halfway through her senior year of college as a reporting and production intern. Upon graduation, she became our associate producer for "The :30." In 2012, she became our Plattsburgh bureau reporter and weekend anchor. Melissa returned to her home state in 2013 to pursue a position as a general assignment reporter for News 12 Connecticut.
In 2014, Melissa attended the New York Emmys as a nominated reporter for her military feature covering homeless and jobless veterans in the state. In 2014, she won a New York Press Club Award for her consumer reporting on winter conditions and snow removal. In 2014 and 2015, she won Connecticut SPJ Awards for her crime and local reporting.
While Connecticut is the place she was born and raised, Melissa considers the Green Mountain State her home away from home. She attended Champlain College as a Mass Communications student and has been back and forth with her family for ski getaways since she was a little kid.
Any free time Melissa has is spent with her two pups, Meiko and Trusty, and her big family! If you have any story ideas or just want to get to know Melissa, send her an email at email@example.com. She can't wait to meet you!
