Melinda Bolton is the Evening Anchor of KJCT News 8 at 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. She joined the KJCT News 8 staff in December of 2015 and is thrilled to share the latest news with the residents of the Grand Valley.
Originally from the rustbelt city of Youngstown, Ohio (Go Penguins!) she dove in to the news industry as a college student, writing and reporting on everything from fine arts to sports.
It was during her time working for CBS affiliate, KXMC 13 in Minot, North Dakota that she honed her skills as a Reporter, Producer and Anchor. Melinda’s favorite part of working in the news business is connecting with her viewers both over the air and out in the field.
In addition to her Producing and Anchor responsibilities here in Grand Junction, she works to feature interesting projects, stand out teachers, and inspiring students in her weekly Education Matters segment. Melinda would love to see your nominations in her e-mail box or Facebook Messenger!
When she is not working you might run into her exploring the trails surrounding Grand Junction with her dog Stella, cooking for her coworkers, searching for a good book, hitting the slopes or having some fun at events up and down the Western Slope.
If you see Melinda out and about, be sure to say hello!
