Melissa Kohn joined the WSIL News Team in October of 2012. She was born and raised in Chicago and spent most of her career doing morning radio.
She's very excited to make the transition from radio into television. Melissa graduated from the University of Illinois in Champaign with a broadcast journalism degree. She then spent some time in pastry school before tackling Meteorology at Mississippi State University.
Coming from the FM side of the dial, Melissa loves the music scene. If there's a concert, she'll be there. You'll also find her experimenting in the kitchen on a regular basis. Feel free to share your recipes with her. She's always up for a new baking challenge.
