Melanie Camp reports on the best of Buffalo on AM Buffalo, weekday mornings at 10 a.m. on WKBW 7ABC.
Obviously not a native Buffalonian, Mel sounds a little different. The Perth-born, Australian journalist got her start in media as a DJ on a regional radio station in outback Oz. Coincidentally, her first television job was a Channel 7 in Western Australia.
After moving to the United States, Mel owned the Venice Beach beat, working as a journalist and managing editor for the local newspaper Yo! Venice. She also worked as a host on the live and interactive, Dish Network show, BattlecamLive.
Already, Mel is loving life in Western New York. While she is yet to try wings, she has already experienced what it means to live in, "The City of Good Neighbors." Her new next-door neighbor loaned Mel a car to drive to work! Mel wants to pay it forward by sharing inspiring stories of Buffalonians staying Buffalo Strong during this tough time in our history.
If you have a story to share, or even if you just want to say, "Hi," and welcome Mel to town, send her an email at melanie.Camp@wkbw.com and be sure to follow her on FaceBook at facebook.com/MelanieCampWKBW where you can send her some local tips!
