About Michelle

CBS 4 Denver

CBS4’s  Michelle Griego is a Colorado girl and back in her home state and at her home station, CBS4. She grew up in North Denver, near Sloan’s Lake, and started her career in journalism at the tender age of 11. She co-anchored “Two Bits,” a KWGN-TV kids’ news show for nearly three years. “At the time there weren’t a lot of Latinas on TV,” she says. “It felt like I was providing a service, because kids would come up to me and start talking about current events.” She knew instantly that journalism was her calling.

Michelle attended Colorado State University and Metropolitan State University of Denver before beginning her career at CBS4 in 2005. She learned everything she knows about journalism during that time. She worked as an online editor, reporter and, eventually, an anchor. Her favorite live shots include breaking news or “being knee-high in snow.”

Michelle’s volunteer work includes sitting on the boards for the Latin American Educational Foundation and Adelante Mujer, an organization that helps Latina high school students pursue higher education and professional careers.

You can catch her every weekday morning starting at 4:30 a.m. with CBS4’s Dominic Garcia.

Meet Michelle's Dance Partner

Logan Gillette

Logan started dancing in college as a more interesting way of getting exercise and it became an important part of his life. He started teaching at Arthur Murray in 2019 and has become proficient in over 30 different dance styles. Logan’s favorite thing about partner dancing, is the ability to communicate lead and follow with one another, and he especially loves sharing that non verbal language with his students.
