Michelle Charlesworth
Michelle Charlesworth is a reporter and co-anchor of WABC-TV's popular Eyewitness News Saturday and Sunday Morning.

Since joining the Eyewitness News team in 1998, Michelle has reported news from Israel and the occupied territories to Oscar's Red Carpet, but she is probably best known for her award-winning reports on her personal battle with skin cancer. She has been honored with the prestigious Gold Triangle Award for Journalism.

Michelle is also host of WABC-TV's Emmy Award-winning special programs, Broadway Backstage - a look at the upcoming spring and fall theater seasons, and Above and Beyond - a salute to local high school students and teachers who have made a difference in their schools and communities.

Michelle came to Channel 7 from NBC 17 in Raleigh, North Carolina where she worked as a reporter/anchor. Prior to that she was at WCTI in New Bern, North Carolina and WMGM in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Michelle holds a B.A. in Public Policy from Duke University, and studied economics at the University of Freiburg on a full scholarship from the German government. She makes her home in New Jersey with her husband and two children. She loves spending time with her family, playing tennis, going to the beach (in a hat, sunglasses and covered in sunscreen) and cooking and eating Italian food. Her greatest culinary love is her husband's smoked ribs smothered in (from-scratch) BBQ sauce.
