Presenter, producer and journalist, Melissa is a force both on air and off. For two decades she has been a permanent fixture on Australian radio and television working for the country’s leading networks, most recently an entertainment reporter for Seven’s The Morning Show and currently a presenter on Sydney’s KIIS 1065 FM.
Melissa has interviewed Hollywood A-listers, music royalty and co-hosted with many of the biggest names in entertainment. Launching her radio career on Sydney’s 2Day FM, Melissa has also presented workdays on Melbourne’s Nova 100, produced and presented the top rating Nova Top 10 with Jabba and Mel on Sydney’s Nova 969 and became the first female to anchor Australia’s Official ARIA Countdown Show airing nationwide on Nova FM. Melissa’s unique gift for connecting with her audience caught Southern Cross Ten’s attention, recruiting her to host Landed Music TV and Landed Music Radio airing on the SCA network.
At the Australian Radio Network, Melissa’s passion for health and fitness made her the perfect host for body+soul Radio which pioneered the wellness movement across all media platforms. Here she has also produced for The Kyle and Jackie O Show, contributed to award winning radio segments and hosted many music and entertainment programs.
One of Melissa’s career highlights was working for Perisher as Media Director and Snow Reporter.

Devoted to producing a world-class product, Melissa, takes her craft very seriously and loves working with industry professionals and newcomers as a mentor and coach. And when she’s not in the studio, you’ll find Melissa enjoying the great outdoors with her young family on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
