Melissa Mack Moving On Up

OMW can confirm that Local TV Fox affiliate WJW/8 "Fox 8 News" weather anchor Melissa Mack is indeed leaving the station.

Her announcement to that effect, heard by numerous viewers on Sunday night's "Fox 8 News at 10", caused quite a stir, and an increase in E-mail traffic here at your Mighty Blog of Fun(tm).

OMW hears from insiders at South Marginal Road that it's a career move up for Melissa that's prompting her exit from Northeast Ohio. We're told that Ms. Mack is headed for "a larger market" station, but we don't know which market that is.

(We do believe, for whatever reason, that Melissa's new home market is not New York City.)

We hear Melissa Mack's last day on "Fox 8 News" is Thursday.

Melissa quickly got noticed after joining Fox 8. She'd been seen before that in Northeast Ohio, as a weather anchor for now-Parkin/New Vision ABC affiliate WYTV/33 in Youngstown...

WJW must be taking lessons from the Cleveland Indians on how to let young talent leave for larger markets.

She'll be back in about 30 years when Dick Goddard finally decided to retire.

She just revealed during the Turkey Bowl that she's headed to Boston. No station letters revealed.

Typical of Cleveland to loose local / homegrown talent . No money - No play - No stay . Wishing you the best Melissa

Melissa was introduced today here in Boston on WBZ-TV (CBS). Wow is she cute! I predict she will receive 8 to 10 inches!
