Melissa Grelo

Smart, sassy, and informed, Melissa Grelo is a Co-Host of THE SOCIAL, and the Contributing Host of CTV’s YOUR MORNING. Prior to these roles, Grelo was a long-time co-host of Canada’s most-watched morning news program, CP24 BREAKFAST, where she anchored and reported on the biggest stories in Canada’s largest news market. Seizing the opportunity afforded to her by these roles, Grelo has successfully positioned herself as a top social media influencer with thousands of followers across all platforms.

As Canada watched from the edge of their couches, Melissa gave the front-row perspective when she co-hosted CTV’s OLYMPIC MORNING program from Vancouver 2010 in Whistler, B.C. And no stranger to glitz and glamour, Melissa has covered the Toronto International Film Festival® red carpets since 2009, and was in Los Angeles in 2013 reporting for CP24 and CTV from the prestigious ACADEMY AWARDS®. She’s also co-hosted the Santa Claus Parade on CTV since 2010, contributed to the Grey Cup Weekend on TSN in 2012, and DAILY PLANET on Discovery in 2013. In recent years, Melissa has combined her passions for horses and fashion by contributing to TSN’s coverage of the Queen’s Plate, North America’s oldest continuously-run thoroughbred race, and the accompanying wildly popular and glamorous Hats and Horseshoes Party.

When away from the office, Melissa enjoys horseback riding, fitness training, reading, and travelling. As a former teacher, education and giving back to the community are very important to her. She is currently the Celebrity Ambassador for Prince’s Charities Canada, and has worked with Artbound and Free The Children, both of which are charities that have built schools in Kenya, India, and other developing nations. Having been raised on her family’s equestrian farm, Grelo also dedicates time to raising funds for the 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 speaks at many fundraising events, specifically with the GTA’s youth, whom she encourages to become involved in charitable work and contribute to their communities. In 2016, Grelo also launched her own children’s clothing line, marQ, inspired by her daughter.
