The Story Behind Michelle

A graduate of Trent University and Loyalist College, Michelle thought genetics would be her career path, but accidentally fell into the television industry.

After volunteering for a lifestyle show on TVCogeco, Michelle accepted a part time job with CHEX Television in Peterborough. She quickly climbed the ranks with her try anything attitude. She filled almost every position on air, including weather analyst.

She spearheaded two major format changes and was the driving force behind CHEX DAILY, a live, daily show that many said couldn’t be done with the minimal resources provided to the station. The show launched on October 7, 2012 and was a great success.
