She is a proud alumna of Central State University, an HBCU in Wilberforce, OH and a current graduate student at Boston University. She is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
When she's not on air, Melea loves to spend time with her daughter and family, binge-watch TV shows, travel, read, and find cool places to eat (especially seafood spots).
