Melissa Mahan joined FOX25 News as Weekend Anchor in December, 2012. She anchors the Saturday and Sunday editions of "FOX25 News at 6p.m," "FOX25 News at 10p.m." and the Sunday edition of "FOX25 News at 11p.m." During the week, Melissa is a General Assignment Reporter.
Melissa is thrilled to be back in New England having served as an Anchor and Reporter at WLNE-TV in Providence, RI earlier in her career. One of her most memorable days on the air was during a massive snowstorm that shut down the state.
Most recently, Mahan served as a Morning Anchor at KOAT-TV in Albuquerque, NM. Prior to that, Melissa served as an Anchor at various stations such as KJCT-TV in Grand Junction, CO; KTVE-TV in Monroe, LA; and Reporter at Fox Sports Net Bay Area.
Her career has allowed her the opportunity to meet a variety of high-profile people from politicians to sports stars to musicians, but she loves nothing more than giving people a voice by telling their story.
A graduate of the University of California-Santa Barbara, Mahan holds a degree in communications and a minor in sports management.
Melissa is a volunteer with the Make-A-Wish-Foundation. She loves being outdoors and going to sporting events.
