Eddie Messel joined the NBC Montana team in January 2020 as a sports anchor/reporter.
He was born and raised in Miami, Florida, and attended the University of Central Florida in Orlando, where he majored in broadcast journalism with a minor in film. While in college, he interned with Channel 6 WKMG as a reporting intern and was the sports editor for a student organization, covering UCF football for their two undefeated seasons as well as following the team to Arizona to play LSU in the Fiesta Bowl.
He was also part of the student broadcast division doing play by play for UCF baseball and soccer.
Growing up in South Florida, Eddie played baseball his whole life and always had a passion for all things sports. He grew up a passionate fan of the Dolphins, Heat, Marlins, Panthers and now bleeds black and gold for his UCF Knights.
As a Floridian his whole life, he enjoys the change of scenery here in Montana, especially all the snow. When he is not watching sports, Eddie can be found fishing, at the beach, or now hitting the slopes in his new home of Montana. He is very excited to explore all that Montana has to offer, like hiking, fly-fishing and much more.
It was always a dream of his to be on ESPN, and he is excited to start out his dream covering Montana sports for NBC Montana.
