Melissa Andrews

Pour yourself a hot cup of coffee and rise and shine with Melissa Andrews every weekday morning.​

​She is an Emmy winning Anchor who joined WTOL in 2012.​

​Melissa moved to Toledo in 2007 for an Anchor/Reporter position at the ABC affiliate and to be closer to her family in Cleveland.​

​She instantly jumped into the community and met her husband, Ryan, who is from Berkey.​

Since then, Toledo's been home and they've welcomed three children.​

​Before coming to Toledo, Melissa was an Anchor/Reporter in Terre Haute, Ind.​

Born and raised in Cleveland, Melissa studied Broadcast Journalism at Kent State University where she produced, reported and anchored for her college station, as well as PBS. ​

​Fun fact: Melissa was no stranger to Toledo before moving here. She spent her first two years of college at the University of Toledo as a member of Alpha Omicron Pi sorority. She also loved spending summers visiting her four cousins in Ida. ​

​Melissa dedicates a lot of her free time to community organizations, including Susan G. Komen Northwest Ohio, Ronald McDonald House Charities, American Heart Association, Down’s Syndrome Association of Greater Toledo and many others.​

​After she gets off the anchor desk, Melissa goes in to “mom mode” and you’ll see her on a soccer field, a Sylvania basketball game, volunteering in her kids' classrooms or running to the grocery store without all that TV make-up.​

​Juggling a full-time job and being a mom is a lot of work, but Melissa says being a journalist is as much of who she is as being a wife and mom.​

Her motto is, “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life!”​
