Melvin Beal
Reporter

I've been with 10 News since 1986. Before I hit the streets as a reporter covering the story of the day, I was a News Manager for 16 years.

A Tallahassee native, I am a graduate of Florida A&M University. I began my television news career as a photojournalist at WTLV-TV in Jacksonville, Florida.

I've been a freelance national sports reporter since 1995. You may have seen me on ESPN, BET and the syndicated sports show, "Inside the Game." In addition, I was a former play-by-play announcer for Florida A&M football and have covered numerous professional and collegiate sporting events around the country.

I can be seen weekdays on 10 News News at 5 p.m. and would love to hear from you. If you have a news story, just shoot me an email to mbeal@wtsp.com. Also, feel free to call me at 727-577-8555.
