If you don't know about who Merella Fernandez is, well, she an anchor born in Karachi, Pakistan who has gained immense fame from her work and profession.

However, she holds Canadian nationality and has been a force in the world of journalism as a Pakistani-Canadian reporter.

While living in Canada, she has proved her worth in her field of interest; however, it would have been difficult for her to achieve this enormous success had she been living back in her hometown due to lack of opportunities for women. 

But Merella has bagged the height of fame after getting an opportunity. As of now, the power journalist works for CityNews (CTV) based in Toronto.

Merella Career & Salary

Upon graduation, she started working at CTV answering phones and checking the fax machine. But it wasn't long before she began writing for CTV News and Canada AM. For a change, she moved over to Citytv where she worked as a writer in 1998. Merella proved everyone how capable she is to go beyond what she is stereotyped to achieve. She works hard and puts all her efforts into her work to make it her excellent contribution.

Merella’s salary was an attractive one. However, where City-TV had to cut off employees, Merella also was one of them. It happened in 2010. That phase of her life could have moved her, but Merella didn’t take it as a blow or a negative event in her life.

She sought to land up in some better place. Then again in 2011, Merella joined CTV and worked there as a news correspondent. From then on she explored the world of journalism and advanced in her career.

Marella's Personal life

There is much to know about Merella’s professional life, but she never speaks about her personal life.

Even at the age of 45, she chooses to keep all the facts of married life to herself. We don’t see her walking openly with any man. She never introduced her husband or children to the media even if she has any. Even her parents never talked about her married or love life.

But her admirers are hopeful that she reveals about her personal details in near time soon.
