Michelle Ross joined News 12 The Bronx in May 2018 as a multimedia journalist/reporter and is happy to be back in the Boogie Down! No stranger to the borough, she graduated from the College of Mount Saint Vincent in Riverdale in 2014. This is where she held internships at the Bill Cunningham and Rachael Ray Shows.
Michelle’s first news job out of college was at Fox News Radio as a production assistant and later at ABC Radio as an associate producer. Her first on-air job was at WETM in Elmira, where she worked as the Corning bureau chief and as a fill-in anchor. There Michelle won two Associated Press awards – one for best reporter and the other for best investigative reporter.
A native New Yorker, Michelle was born in Queens and raised mostly on Long Island. She comes from a Persian family and is the first generation born in the United States after her family immigrated from Iran. When she’s not chasing breaking news, Michelle enjoys trying out new recipes in the kitchen, challenging herself in the gym, and hosting friends and family in her apartment with her boyfriend, who is an FDNY firefighter.
Michelle also finds great satisfaction in organizing, loves checking out new restaurants, and is always planning her next trip. She hopes to one day visit every country on the planet in addition to all 50 states because she believes when you experience different cultures and places, you appreciate home that much more.
