Brianna Mellon
Bri Mellon joined the ABC30 Action News sports team in September 2019. Bri is originally from Thousand Oaks, CA, and is happy to return to her home state.

Bri graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara where she reported for the school's athletic show Gaucho Vision. During her time in Santa Barbara, Bri worked as an intern at KEYT News Channel 3 and landed a job at the station before graduation. From the Central Coast, she moved to Amarillo, Texas where she held the title of sports director for KFDA News Channel 10. Bri covered West Texas high school football for two years before her next adventure across the country. Bri most recently worked in Omaha, Nebraska at WOWT News 6 as a sports anchor and reporter. Bri covered two College World Series, Creighton athletics, and Nebraska athletics during her time. She followed the Huskers first season under new Head Coach Scott Frost and Clovis West native Adrian Martinez.

Bri played sports growing up, but soccer was her first love playing competitively for over a decade. She loves the beach, traveling, and working out.

Bri is excited to get to know the local high school athletes in the Central Valley and cover Fresno State Athletics. If you see her out at a game, feel free to say hi!
