Melissa Pixcar | ABC7 KGO News Team
I am elated to be one of the first Community Journalist of the Bay Area. I am still pinching myself because this is all a dream come true. I have been dreaming of this moment since I was a little girl when I would watch the news with my grandparents.

I am a Bay Area native and have lived in the Bay Area my whole life. I graduated from San Francisco State with a degree in Broadcasting and Electronic Communication Arts with an emphasis in Audio Production.

I am also a first generation college graduate. My fondest college memories was being part of my college radio station KSFS. I was the News Director of the station and a talk show host for a year. Of course my show was about all things Bay Area, sports, music - you name it!

In 2016, I got my foot in the door and started working at ABC7 in San Francisco. I was a Production Assistant and loved everything behind the scenes, every day was different from the day before.

When I'm not working I love to spending time and going on adventures with my dog Rolo. I also enjoy cooking, reading, and working out. Traveling has always been number one in my heart and I love going on new adventures.

I am excited for this new adventure of being a Community Journalist so please do not hesitate to share your story with me. You can reach me at melissa.a.pixcar@abc.com.
