Elissa Borden

Elissa Borden joined WCAX in March of 2020, and now works as the dedicated 4 p.m. reporter. She began as a producer/MMJ on weekend mornings before eventually moving to anchor that show. She also handles the weekly series 'Made in Vermont' which airs each Monday at 6 p.m.

She comes to us from our sister station, WLUC, in Marquette, Michigan. This Massachusetts native attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst and graduated in 2019 with B.A. in Journalism and a minor in Natural Resource Conservation.

Elissa loves sandwiches, her cat named Ruth, taking walks, swimming, skiing, reading, and hitting the gym. She's absolutely in love with all that Vermont has to offer and can't wait to keep exploring this beautiful place. If you have restaurant recommendations, news tips, or a MiVT nomination, send her an email -- borden@wcax.com.
