Melinda Rizzo Writer

I bring curiosity, commitment, a keen eye for the details and passion for storytelling to every project. As a reporter, I know how to find sources, take interviews and ask questions that get to the heart of a story, or uncover something fresh and new about a topic. With field, interview, research and events coverage experience, I have what it takes to bring results and do the job right.

Let's do this

"Melinda is a terrific contributor to our newspaper, covering local meetings and events that competing publications do not write about. She also contributes to a number of organizations such as the Upper Bucks Chamber of Commerce. She's a pleasure to work with and a great asset to anyone who retains her services," Joe Wingert, Publisher, Bucks County Herald, Lahaska, PA

From case studies to articles, white papers,  press releases, web content, blogging, email campaigns or team reports,

I can do the job. 

I've written for local, regional and national publications on topics as diverse as local and municipal news, human interest stories, business and industry, finance, health care manufacturing and construction,  and arts and entertainment.

Valley remains a top 5 in Northeast region for economic development

"In my professional capacity as Director of Communications at the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation, where I often served as a source for Melinda or helped her obtain sources or information for her stories, I have always found her to be a very diligent and hard-working reporter whose stories were often detail-oriented and always accurate. She always showed a solid understanding of whatever topic she was reporting on, and I never had to fear that anyone from our organization would be misquoted or misrepresented in her stories. She is a strong writer and a fine journalist," Colin McEvoy, Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation director of communications, Allentown, PA
