Melanie Ester Churella is a former Miss Michigan and local Detroit TV personality.

Churella was named Miss Michigan in 1987 after the original Miss Michigan, Kaye Lani Rae Rafko, became Miss America.[1]

Churella went on to anchor live news updates on Detroit's WXON-TV (now WMYD) until 1995, when the station became a WB affiliate and the news updates were removed from the programming schedule.
