    Melissa Magee was for 11 years the most engaging personality on any station in the Philadelphia market. She deserves an anchor position wherever she goes. Melissa, we want you back in Philly, but I guess we will be watching you in LA for now. All the best.

    Melissa, you are a huge loss to Philadelphia viewers. As it turns out, I retired and I will be moving from Philly to Orange County, CA next spring, to be with family. I am thrilled that I will be able to see your upbeat, informative broadcasts again. Wishing you all the best, young lady. NBC 4 is fortunate to have you.

    Melissa you were my dad’s favorite(he passed in 2017) and you have also become my favorite meteorologist. Cali is lucky to have you!

  13. David from Hammonton, NJ and a former US Army Veteran on November 12, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Dear Melissa,

    I know this may sound selfish, but I wish you were still here because you had always made my day when you were on air. I know however family is very important and although I do understand your departure I just wanted to say you will always have a family here in the tri-State area. I really do wish you well and may God watch over you, and thank you for many years of hard work. I know we will miss you on the Boardwalk getting on those crazy rides! I actually feel I lost a friend I never met. With much love.

    Dave

    We miss you BIG TIME here in Philly!! It’s gonna be so very hard to replace you…your personality and “style sense” were second to none…you brought so much to not only your weather forcasts, but also to FYI and your truly wonderful “down the shore” reports and adventures. So happy that you’re back home with your family and a job you truly deserve, but you will always hold a special place in our hearts here…you were certainly one of the BEST news personalities to ever grace 6ABC!!

  18. Madeline Farren on November 27, 2020 at 1:40 pm

    I was watching the news on NBC today and who do I see—Melissa Magee—yeah!! Moved to SoCal a few years ago and saw you recently left Philadelphia and Action News to be with your family here. Loved you there and am sure you’ll do a terrific job here. Best wishes!

    You seem like a really nice lady but just a tip…please remember this is not The Price is Right or Wheel of Fortune..you seem to always stand in the middle of the screen and half of the temps and other areas are blocked. Fritz and now Tony the other weather people always stand at the side and allows the weather to be seen as well as heard. Thanks

  25. Jim and Mary on January 1, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    Melissa, welcome to CA. We enjoyed your segments from our first viewing. You have a wonderful flowing and informative style. It appears that NBC LA has made a great hire. We wish you all the best.

  26. Anana on January 7, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Represent and enjoy. You’re doing great and well positioned for your career. Best wishes .

    Just watched you today and I’m was so impressed by what a true professional you are that I had to compose this comment. You look great and your arms are incredible. Keep up the good work. Thank you!!!

  29. MITZI on January 23, 2021 at 1:40 am

    WOW, MELISSA I WONDERED WHERE YOU WERE. WISH YOU THE BEST AND GOOD HEALTH,
    WE WILL MISS YOU.

  30. Chris Swift on January 24, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    We love your professional weather reporting as well as your professional appearance each and every day.
    That being said, I want to ask a question directly to you Melissa in hopes of getting an answer I have never gotten from your station.
    We live here in Needles CA where we experience very little rain and extreme temperatures during the summer but some Great weather in the winter months. Why do we never see any of your reporting for our California
    Desert cities and towns? The reporting never seems to go past Victorville. If we could get AZ channels through Direct TV we know the NBC affiliate in Phoenix reports all the way to Yuma, Parker, Lake Havasu but Direct TV says know to us because we are CA and they deliver their service based on ZIP codes.
    Thank you in advance for a possible answer or maybe even a little weather coverage for us desert rats.🥵

  31. Jerry Newton on January 26, 2021 at 6:25 pm

    Melissa you are doing a great job and I am sure you will be receiving awards for your fantastic job as weather expert on KNBC4!

    As of late the news is fraught with disappointment and negativity so I rarely watch. I have to say as of late I tune in for the weather report on NBC-4. At 4 and 6 pm. Melissa your delivery is IMPECCABLE and your appearance is FLAWLESS. You EXUDE and RADIATE warmth. I had no idea the weather could be so engaging! Thank you Melissa, you’re BLESSED.

  37. P.Dixon on March 30, 2021 at 10:19 am
