MELISSA Hetherington is currently a regular presenter on "Coxy's Big Break" for the Seven Network and she's also the face of "Harbour Town Shopping Centre" at Docklands.
As the writer and producer of her stories on "Coxy's Big Break", Melissa loves any opportunity to get outdoors to try all kinds of weird and wonderful things, such as learning how to wakeboard and jumping out of aeroplanes (skydiving), to dressing up playing fashionista at some of the hottest events around Melbourne.
Her skills as a presenter have given her many memorable moments, including reporting live from a Qantas flight over the east coast of Australia for the Royal Children's Hospital 'Good Friday Appeal', hosting the live telecast of the New Years Eve "Fireworks Special" for Channel 7 and she was also Flemington's TV presenter during "Melbourne Cup" week talking all things fashion with local and international celebrities including; Liza Minnelli, Joel and Benji Madden and the Pussy Cat Dolls.
Melissa has been a member of the Seven Network for over 6 years having also worked as a regular presenter on Melbourne Weekender, Go for your Life and Trivial Pursuit�. Her fresh and vivacious personality has afforded her the opportunity to host many significant events. Some highlights include hosting the Red Carpet at Olivia Newton-Johns 'RockInc' event at Rod Laver Arena and the launch of "Melbourne Spring Fashion Week" for the ˜City of Melbourne.
On several occasions, Melissa has toured the country as host of the 'Cosmopolitan Model Search' and co-hosted the summer launch of Covergirl's ˜Easy Breezy campaign alongside former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins.
In addition to her presenting work, Melissa has achieved several notable credits as an actor with appearances on 'Neighbours' and 'The Secret Life of Us'. She also appeared in the feature film ˜Take Away and has also appeared in several television commercial campaigns including her latest one for "British Paints" with her husband Matt.
In 2009 she was signed as the fresh, new face of "Harbour Town Shopping Centre", in Docklands and has been writing blogs on "What's hot in Melbourne"� for the City of Melbourne.
She loves fashion, Melbourne's bar/cafe scene, the theatre, travel and her favourite pass time is cooking at home for her family.
