Melissa is devoted to getting to the heart of stories that matter most to Torontonians. She has anchored and reported the devastating February 2008’s Queen Street fire where Toronto history went up in flames, the April 2008 TTC strike that left commuters in limbo and the massive propane explosion of August 2008.

When away from the newsroom, Grelo enjoys horseback riding, fitness training, reading, and travelling. Grelo has a “pay it forward attitude” and dedicates time to charity work raising funds for Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) and the Community Association for Riding for the Disabled (CARD) with horseback riding demonstrations. She also speaks at many fundraising events specifically with the GTA’s youth who Grelo encourages to become involved in charitable work and contribute to their communities.
