Michelle Wolf joined the FOX8 team in July 2019 as a reporter.

She comes to the Triad from Quincy, Illinois, where she reported, produced and anchored for KHQA News.

Prior to working in the Midwest, Michelle attended Penn State University (WE ARE!) and holds a degree in Broadcast Journalism and Italian.

She loves telling people’s stories and telling them right. She truly feels like journalism is her calling.

Michelle was born and raised in the Philadelphia area and is an avid Eagles fan.

She is excited to be back East and can’t wait to explore the Triad with her Siberian Husky, Kodak. (Yes, he is named after Kodak Pictures!)

When she’s not at work, she can be found exploring the outdoors with Kodak or whipping up one of her grandmother’s recipes in the kitchen.
