Monica is proud to be celebrating 20 years in broadcasting. She joined Fox 2 in 2005 as the morning traffic anchor as well as contributing reports in fitness and entertainment.
Monica brings years of news and sports reporting having worked in Jefferson County in her early years for Regional Radio and eventually the biggest part of her career in country music before making the switch to television. Monica was the News Director/Morning Show Host and sports reporter at KJCF in Festus and loved her early years of doing color commentating for football and baseball in the Jefferson County and St Francois County areas. It is this love for sports that led her to covering St Louis Blues, Cardinals and Rams for 12 years. She made the switch to KDJR/KHAD in DeSoto in 1995 hosting a solo country morning show.
Some of her standout memories in her career have been her one on ones with Reba McEntire, Rascal Flatts, Martina McBride, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Trace Adkins and multiple other country artists as well as some of her favorites in the sports world such as Brett and Bobby Hull, Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Emmitt Smith and the enjoyable competition between Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa in the 90’s.
Monica prides herself on being very diverse not only in her professional career but personally as well. She dances, sings, volunteers for multiple organizations while serving in emcee roles regularly for Family Resource Center, multiple cancer organizations and Ponybird Home in Mapaville just to name a few. She takes comfort in knowing she can make a difference in giving back. Some of her favorite memories in her volunteerism are her Dancing with the St. Louis Stars and Dancing in the Loop stints. She was the only dancer to garner a perfect score while raising money for the Jewish Community Center and Independence center.
Monica quickly changes hats when she wraps up her morning reporting on Fox 2, serving as a wellness consultant to many businesses and personal clients. She is a certified personal trainer and transformation specialist. She works one on one and in group training at multiple facilities in St. Louis.
