Channel 3 Cheer: Melissa Sheketoff

Posted: Updated:

Melissa Sheketoff is the associate producer for The Thirty and one of the weekend reporters here. Melissa comes from an immediate family of seven; she's one of five kids. Her mother, Claudia, explains it's hard to find one meal that all seven people will eat and enjoy. But every holiday, they make Grinch Pasta. And Melissa's younger sisters, Amy Jo and Annie Lyn, agree, mom's pasta definitely spreads cheer. Watch the video for more.
