Melissa Mollet is a general assignment reporter for News4 and hosts segments on NBC Washington Nonstop.
Mollet began reporting for News4 in December 2010, marking a homecoming in more ways than one. Not only did the Gaithersburg High School graduate return to her hometown, she returned to the station where her journalism career took root. Melissa was an intern at NBC4 during college, working one summer in local news and employee relations and the following summer for NBC’s Dateline.
In between stints at NBC4, Melissa reported and anchored the morning show for KDVR in Denver. She covered a wide range of stories -- from the 10th anniversary of the Columbine High School shootings to the 2008 Democratic National Convention to several American Idol finales in Los Angeles. While at KDVR, she won a Colorado Broadcasters Association award for "Best Breaking News Story."
Mollet has also reported for Cable News 21 in Rockville, Newschannel 8 in Washington, and NBC25 in Hagerstown, where she was an anchor for every newscast from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. at one time or another and created the station’s consumer unit, Test it Out Tuesday.
Melissa lives in Gaithersburg with her three favorite guys -- her husband, son and dog, Norm.
