Melissa Mahadeo - FOX 35 News Orlando

Melissa Mahadeo

You'll never realize just how much you'll miss something until you've left it behind. As a native Floridian, I'm over-the-moon ecstatic to be back home in my sunshine state. Prior to joining FOX35 I ventured to rural West Texas, determined to tell compelling stories about the towns and the amazing people I met.

After my time at KLBK, I packed a bag and headed for the Lonestar state's capitol to report for KVUE, the ABC affiliate. To my delight, the saying "keep Austin weird" is both an honest and true reflection of the city. I immediately fell in love with the people, the food, the atmosphere, the food, the music, the culture and of course, the food. But as much as I loved where I was, I eventually realized, there really is no place like home.

Since I am originally from south Florida, I've always loved Orlando. I look forward to telling meaningful stories about the culture, concerns, and communties in Central Florida.

In my spare time, you may find me trying out a local restaurant or at one of the many theme parks in town. Both are a couple of my favorite past times.

Have a story idea? A question? Feel free to email me.
