She has an extensive background in both television and radio. She comes to KYW Newsradio 1060 from WHYY-TV’s ”Delaware Tonight” program, where she was a part-time reporter. Before that, Suzanne worked as an anchor and reporter for WHYY-FM and Temple University’s radio station, WRTI-FM. She also served as a news intern at WPHL-TV’s, “WB17 News at 10.”

Monaghan received a bachelor of arts degree in journalism and public relations from Temple University. She worked as director of sales and marketing for a well-known local health services company, and at one time had her own corporate event management company.

Monaghan is comfortable in a variety of reporting situations. She loves covering breaking news, but also enjoys producing creative pieces. She says she has never regretted her decision to enter this field, and considers working as an anchor and reporter an honor and a responsibility.

In her spare time Suzanne enjoys travel, music, and exercise. Suzanne is a lifelong resident of Delaware County, where she lives with her husband and her twin daughters.
