If you’ve ever watched journalist and Channel 7 television presenter Melissa Doyle, you know she can shed the occasional tear.

The 20-year veteran attended the Australian Commercial Radio Awards in Melbourne on October 9 and told the Daily Mail Australia the real reason she gets emotional during interviews is because she wants to “be true to myself”.

“As a journalist I have tried really hard to be true to myself and to do the stories and tell stories in a way that I hold dear,” she says.

“The day that I don’t feel when I do some of the stories, that I am so heartless that I don’t cry is probably the day I should give it up and go and do something else.”

Melissa has covered some pretty major events in her time as a news journalist. From the Beaconsfield Mine collapse in 2006 and the Royal Wedding in 2001 to the siege at the Lindt Cafe in Sydney in 2014, she has been there for it all saying she “hopes I never, ever leave particular stories on particular interviews and not feel the depth of emotion that is in that story at that time”.

The ex-Sunrise host became a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in the 2016 Australia Day Honours for her service to the community through “representational roles with a range of charitable groups, and to the broadcast media”.

She says the key to a successful career is working out your passion, so work can become a pleasure.

How are you true to yourself? What passions do you have?

  1. Melissa you were the heart and soul of Sunrise. When you left, so did I. Your replacement thinks she could fill your shoes, well, she can’t even fill your thongs. You are a true Aussie girl with the heart as big as the great outdoors. Continued success Melissa. God Bless You.

  2. What’s happened to Mel anyway. We only see her on SN now. I miss her on the weekend news, and during the day on news breaks. I hope they haven’t sidelined her again.theyve had a lot of different people reading the weekend news and thru the day, and none of them are a patch on our Mel. Where is she?
