Michelle Charlesworth (born June 7, 1970) is an American television news reporter and anchor. Since 1998 she has been a reporter for both ABC News and WABC-TV, as well as a weekend morning anchor for WABC-TV's Eyewitness News and is probably best known for an award-winning series of reports about her battle with skin cancer, which aired on both WABC-TV and ABC's Good Morning America.
An alumna of Princeton High School in Princeton, New Jersey, she graduated from Duke University with a Bachelor of Arts in public policy and studied economics in a graduate program on a full scholarship from the German government at the University of Freiburg.
On October 16, 2006, Charlesworth gave birth to her first child, a girl. Her daughter is named Isabelle Marlene, after the hurricane that hit Charlesworth's wedding on the Jersey Shore. On September 29, 2009, Charlesworth gave birth to her second child, Jack James.
She was recently on a long list of WABC-TV reporters in line to replace fired Eyewitness News This Morning co-anchor Steve Bartelstein. Another candidate for the anchor seat was reporter Lisa Colagrossi. Ken Rosato became the co-anchor with Lori Stokes on July 6, 2007.
Charlesworth continues to substitute regularly for Ken Rosato or Lori Stokes, thus prompting others, including Toni Yates, and, prior to her death, Lisa Colagrossi to fill in for her on the Weekend Morning broadcasts with Rob Nelson.
