To sustain and enhance Jewish Life at Home and Around the World.


Melissa Stern, 27

Melissa joined FOX 4 in October of 2013.  Her passion for reporting started at a young age while she was growing up in south Florida. From debate, to public speaking, then reporting and anchoring for the University of Florida, she decided she had the gift of gab.  Melissa loves finding stories and sharing them with the community. She earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Telecommunications at UF and then traveled to the Show Me State for the first time ever to work at KOLR10 in Springfield. 

Melissa has been an active member at Chabad on the Plaza.  Even with her busy schedule reporting the news, she has dedicated her time and energy to volunteering with Chabad, and engaging in community events.

Profession: Reporter at Fox4 (WDAF-TV)
