Michelle Ross is a multimedia journalist who joined the PIX11 news team in June 2021.
Before that, she worked at News 12 The Bronx where she was nominated for two Emmys for her coverage of the death of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz, the 15-year-old who was killed in a brutal gang attack outside a Bronx bodega.
Michelle’s first news job out of college was at Fox News Radio as a production assistant and later at ABC News Radio as an associate producer. Her first on-air gig was at WETM in Elmira, NY — four hours north of the City — where she was also a multimedia journalist and wore many hats from reporter, camera operator, producer to anchor. There, Michelle won two Associated Press awards – one for best reporter and the other for best investigative reporter.
A native New Yorker, Michelle was born in Queens and raised mostly on Long Island. She comes from a Persian family and is the first generation born in the United States after her family immigrated here from Iran.
When not telling stories, Michelle enjoys trying out new recipes in the kitchen, challenging herself in the gym, and hosting friends and family in her home with her boyfriend who is an FDNY firefighter.
Michelle is also always planning her next trip. She hopes to one day visit every country on the planet in addition to all 50 states because she believes when you experience different cultures and places, you appreciate home that much more.
