BOISE, Idaho — KTVB is glad to welcome back veteran broadcaster and Boise native Mellisa Paul to the Gem State after she spent the last ten years at our sister-station, KXTV in Sacramento.

In Sacramento, Paul played a key part in the growth and success of KXTV's lifestyle show, "Sac & Co." At KTVB, she will be a TV host and business development specialist, where she will work alongside our leadership to help expand our locally-produced lifestyle program "Idaho Today," and help move KTVB in new directions on local and lifestyle coverage.

Paul grew up in the Treasure Valley and attended the College of Idaho then graduated from Boise State University. She then attended the Oxford School of Drama in Oxford, England, where she studied Shakespearean acting.

Paul, her husband, and their two daughters are excited to be back in the Treasure Valley for years to come.

She says she's excited to showcase all of the unique businesses and places to visit across the valley in her new role at KTVB.
