Melissa Francis has an unusual background for a news anchor. As a child, she was a regular on “Little House on the Prairie,” portraying Michael Landon’s adopted daughter. Later, as a student at Harvard University, she was captain of the university’s polo team. The host of the FOX Business Network’s “Money with Melissa Francis” has also written a soon-to-be-released memoir, “Diary of a Stage Mother’s Daughter” (Weinstein Books, $26).
