Montgomery County’s Melissa Mollet to Emcee MCPF Annual Awards Dinner


Melissa Mollet, News4 Traffic Reporter, will emcee the first Montgomery County Police Foundation (the “Foundation” or “MCPF”) Annual Awards Dinner October 16, 2019.

A Montgomery County native and Gaithersburg High School graduate, Mollet’s career began at NBC4; she was an intern in three different departments during college. She returned in 2010 as a reporter for News4 Today. Mollet earned an EMMY Award for her 2013 story Rescuers Rescued in which she detailed a Beltway accident involving a fire truck and the first responders aboard.

In between stints at NBC4, Mollet reported and anchored the morning show for KDVR in Denver. She covered a wide range of stories -- from the 10th anniversary of the Columbine High School shootings to the 2008 Democratic National Convention to several American Idol finales in Los Angeles. While at KDVR, she won a Colorado Broadcasters Association award for "Best Breaking News Story".

Mollet has also reported for Cable News 21 in Rockville, Newschannel 8 in Washington, and NBC25 in Hagerstown, where she was an anchor for every newscast from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. at one time or another and created the station’s consumer segment, Test it Out Tuesday.

Melissa lives in Maryland with her husband, Jake, and children Brennan, Barrett and Colette. Norm, the mohawked Mini Goldendoodle, serves as the family mascot.

The MCPF Annual Awards Dinner will honor Montgomery County Chief of Police J. Thomas Manger at the Foundation’s Leadership Legacy Dinner October 16, 2019 at the Bethesda Country Club. In addition to honoring Chief Manger at the dinner, the Foundation will also award training and development and scholarships to two officers demonstrating exceptional leadership. The annual scholarships will be dedicated in Chief Manger’s name.
