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.

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