Goodmorning. My name is Francis John Gorbett (Jack) and I'm a twenty-five year old student at Cleveland State University. It's my goal to become a high school history teacher and hopefully someday start my own show for youth engaging them in politics. In short I really love your professionalism that you bring to Fox 8 every day. Your intelligence, and joyful smile brings some realness to the network. I love that High Fidelity is your favorite book. As an avid reader of music, politics, and pop culture, it's a fantastic read and awesome movie. While you may be more established then me, I have a lot to offer a women. Have a great day and as Tavis Smiley says, "Keep the faith"
P.S. Your natural beauty is really awesome. :-)

You are seriously looking so hot that it's shocking to know you are single !

You need to give Tim Ryan a call. I think you two would make an excellent couple!

Hi Melissa: I love to dance also, 70's 80's stuff is the fun stuff: Ever see Disco Inferno or Spazmatics? They are around the area always. I live in Eastlake & always see them & have a great time. Willoughby Brewing Co & Avenue Grill is popular. Hopefully I'll see you there sometime & I'll have to say hi, I think your georgous. Ken

Hi Melissa. I don't know if you still read these comments but I wanted to say that you are a perfect fit for Boston and we are lucky to have you. You seem to have a great personality and you have a fantastic smile :)
Kudos on all of the charity work that you do on the side. I am disabled from a spinal cord injury and understand the value of charity.
Good luck on your career!

Hey Melissa you always start my mornings off right. Even when I wake up on the wrong side of the bed. You are so beautiful and always appear to be in such a good mood. I never really "looked forward" to the news and weaather until you caame to Boston. Hope you never leave!!!
Wednesday, January 02, 2013 9:58:20 AM by Anonymous
Hi Melissa, Don't get me wrong because you do appear to be a down-to-earth girl, but it seems contradictory that your biggest turn-off is "egotism" but you say your ex would describe you as "unforgettable".
Monday, April 01, 2013 10:50:00 AM by Anonymous
To me it seems contradictory that your Biggest turn-off is Egotism but your Biggest turn-on is Having a larger-than-life personality. Some might call that the same thing! lol
Sunday, June 09, 2013 2:29:00 PM by gary
Hi Melissa. I do miss you so in the mornings here in Boston. I do understand about getting up so early. I would dislike that also. Best of luck back in Cleveland.

I would like to know the designer of Melissa's dresses. I love them . . all of them. Very tasteful and professional and of course appropriate for your position on Fox 8. Thank you Melissa. hope to hear back from you.

Tuesday, August 04, 2015 6:37:39 PM by Anonymous
Hi Melissa, you always look beautiful on the tv. However, I feel that very often you look overdressed (not professionally dressed).
Saturday, October 10, 2015 6:03:49 PM by Janice Thomas
I admire your fashion sense and was (after writing to you at the station and not receiving a reply in August) disappointed not to hear from you. Do you make some of your own clothes and if not what are your favorite places to shop. Thank-you.
