Hello! My first name is Melanie, and I want to thank you for taking time to read a few ‘rays’ about me. I lived most of my life in Florida spent a few years in New York. Since 2013, I have lived in London. To learn specifically about the blog, visit the About page.
ABOUT SUNNY- CURRENT
I’ll always be proud to say I’m from Florida, the Sunshine State. However, while studying Communications at Florida State University, I had the opportunity to live in London and intern for NBC News- London Bureau. I fell in love with London (and a camera man whom I married!) and eventually made it my permanent home.
‘Mr. Sunny’ is a lifelong North Londoner, a beer connoisseur and the “engineer” of our pub crawls. I finally convinced him to make an appearance with me in the video below. It tells the true, humorous story of where he proposed to me. Of course, you can learn a lot about London in it too.
The Sunny News on YouTube features regularly updated videos about London for those visiting London, living in London, or moving to London. If you watch it, you’ll see it reflects my love for media and is modelled after television news based on my prior experience. I also flex my on-camera journalistic skills in livestream video broadcasts on Facebook and Instagram.
