    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!

    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

    Love your infectious smile! The blue dress was awesome too!

  17. Karen on November 24, 2020 at 4:39 pm

    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!!

    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!
