Melissa Wheeler, Reporter, CTV NEWS MONTREAL
Melissa Wheeler's relationship with journalism started in grade 5. She remembers the day when a police officer visited her class as a guest speaker and the teacher asked the students to come up with three good questions to ask. That was the day she learned the importance of asking poignant questions.
In high school Wheeler published her own music magazine. In university she continued to write about arts and culture for local newspapers. She set her sights on daily news journalism when she moved to Montreal, and has since worked in several news rooms.
Wheeler believes in the importance of life long learning in as many different ways as possible. To this end, she continues to take classes when the opportunities arise.
A native of Ontario, Wheeler has a bachelor degree in Journalism. In her free time she enjoys reading the newspapers with a good cappuccino on weekend mornings.
