Traci Melchor is a Canadian television personality, best known as cohost of CTV's The Social[1] and as a reporter for the network's entertainment magazine series etalk.

Originally from Pickering, Ontario, Melchor studied radio and television broadcasting at Seneca College. She joined CHUM Limited as an entertainment reporter for Citytv,[2] later becoming a cohost of MuchMusic's RapCity. She moved to Los Angeles in 2000, becoming an entertainment reporter and host for E![3] and taking acting roles in a number of television series, before returning to Canada in 2005 and taking a new role with MuchMusic's sister station MuchMoreMusic.

In 2008, Melchor joined CTV's etalk. She also regularly contributes to The Marilyn Denis Show, CP24 Breakfast, CTV News and Toronto's CHUM-FM.

Melchor left her position as co-host of The Social shortly after filming a "Bell Let's Talk" mental health episode of the show, realizing that she herself had some mental health issues that she needed to address. She continues to contribute to etalk but has been permanently replaced by Marci Ien on The Social.
