Melissa Thieariu Biography

Melissa Theuriau was born July 18, 1978, in Echirolles, France. An avid news watcher from an early age, she pursued her interest in journalism by attending the Institut de la Communication et des Medias, where she graduated with a degree in communications.

In the years that followed, Melissa began a training period with French super station Canal +, followed by an internship with Glem Productions, where she served as a journalist and reporter.

That experience gave her the confidence to approach La Chaîne Info (LCI) in January 2003, a prominent French cable news channel. Six months later, Melissa made her first on-air appearance for the network, and by 2004, she was invited to join LCI’s popular morning show, LCI Matin.

Later that year, Melissa also began hosting Voyages, LCI’s weekly travel show. The colorful program helped introduce viewers to Melissa’s more whimsical side as she explored exotic locales such as Budapest, Madagascar, Cambodia, and Djerba, among many others.

In May 2006, the network offered Melissa a significant promotion when they asked her to be the lead anchorwoman for their weekend evening news program. To their shock, and the shock of many media observers, Melissa politely declined the invitation, citing a fear of overexposure. Ironically, that very same week the French tabloid Voici featured pictures of Melissa topless at the beach.

In joining the network, Melissa became the editor in chief and host of Zone interdite, a weekly magazine news show. Melissa also hosted One Day, One Photo, a special presentation about famous photos throughout history.
