A familiar face to commuters in her hometown of Fort Myers, Florida, Angela Melvin presents traffic news in the mornings on Fox 4 WFTX-TV. She spends much of her offscreen time working to help the children of Lee County as director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast. In this role, Angela Melvin has secured partnerships with the Boston Red Sox, Costco, and other major institutional partners.
Melvin also excels at fundraising, and has built relationships with donors that have yielded hundreds of thousands of dollars to support the group’s programs. One of her greatest successes was the Chefs Cooking for Kids event in 2013, which raised $60,000 in a day.
Before joining Big Brothers Big Sisters and Fox 4, Angela Melvin worked as a communications director for a well-known member of Florida’s congressional delegation in Washington, DC. Prior to that, she held several anchor and reporter roles at television stations in Florida and Georgia. Melvin’s former managers and colleagues describe her as a compassionate leader, a steady hand in stressful situations, and a skillful journalist capable of blending technical and editorial skills to create original content.
