Melissa Cooney joined WCAX in June 2021 as a weeknight and weekend multimedia journalist. She is a recent graduate of Wake Forest University, where she received a B.A. in Communication Media Studies and minored in both Journalism and Studio Art. While this is her first job, she spent a semester interning at WXII in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and a summer interning at "Late Night with Seth Meyers" in New York City.
In her free time, she loves to paint, read, watch TikToks, run and ski! She is thrilled to be a part of this amazing team and loves Burlington so much already.
