Michelle Dunaway started at 9 & 10 News as nervous, newbie reporter way back in October of 2000. Today she anchors 9 & 10 News at Noon, 5:00 and 6:00. Plenty has happened in between. She’s covered stories all over northern Michigan, reported and anchored for Michigan this Morning and has grown up quite a bit.
Today health and wellness are very important to her. She brings you Medwatch, a local piece featuring the medical technology we have available to us here in northern Michigan. She also works closely with Chief Photojournalist Corey Adkins on local feature stories that showcase the fun, interesting and unique people and events in our area called Sightseeing in Northern Michigan.
She’s won 3 Michigan Emmy awards and received several honors from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters and the Associated Press. But her real passion is being able to tell people’s stories, help them find the quality health care they need and inspire them to make an active lifestyle a priority.
When she’s not working, Michelle gets in as much time as she can with her husband, her daughter and their puppy. She enjoys traveling, cooking and eating. Fitness is very important to her – from running and biking – to burpees and bench presses. Horses will always be a passion.
Charity work is also a big part of her life. She’s served on the board of the OASIS Family Resource Center for several years and loves supporting her favorite causes by doing things like jumping into frozen lakes.
Michelle is very grateful to be a part of the family that is Northern Michigan’s News Leader. She offers many thanks to the loyal viewers who choose to allow us into their homes every day.
