Melissa Zygowicz started as a reporter and multimedia journalist for THV11 in July 2017.
Melissa came to Little Rock from KOMU-TV, the NBC affiliate in Columbia, Missouri. She kept herself busy there working as an MMJ reporter, digital producer and anchor. She also spent a summer interning for CBS Chicago, working with the investigative team to uncover crime and corruption. It was an honor for her to work and learn alongside some of the best journalists in the business!
Melissa is originally from the suburbs of Chicago and left the Windy City to pursue her journalism career. She is a proud graduate of the University of Missouri where she received her Bachelor of Journalism. And yes, she does realize she is a Tiger fan living in Hog country! (Go Hogs, too!)
When she is not in the newsroom, Melissa enjoys spending her time outdoors, exploring all the Natural State has to offer. She enjoys running and would like to eventually give the Little Rock Marathon a shot. If she is not out exploring Arkansas, you can find her checking out some of the new coffee shops around town or reading a good book.
Melissa would love to hear from you! If you have any story ideas (or just a good burger recommendation) e-mail her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
