WFXT has announced Melissa Mahan will join Heather Hegedus as weekend anchor for the Boston Fox O&O.
“Bringing experience as both an Anchor and a Reporter, Melissa is a tremendous addition to FOX25 News,” said WFXT vice president and news director Paul McGonagle. “It’s a pleasure to welcome her back to the area to cover news important to New England viewers.”
Mahan, who last worked at KOAT, was an anchor and reporter for WLNE in Providence, RI, before anchoring for the Albuquerque ABC affiliate.
“I am honored to join the outstanding team at FOX25,” said Mahan, who will also report for WFXT. “I’ve missed the Northeast since leaving Providence a few years ago and can’t wait to get back to the wonderful people, culture and sports teams. I look forward to making Boston my home.”
Mahan previously worked at KJCT in Grand Junction, CO, KTVE in Monroe, LA and Fox Sports Net Bay Area.
