Suzanne Monaghan

monaghan new1 Suzanne MonaghanSuzanne Monaghan joined the KYW Newsradio team as an anchor and reporter in March, 2006.

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.

But since childhood, Monaghan had wanted a career in broadcast journalism, so in 2001 she decided to make a career change. She returned to Temple University for a master’s degree in journalism and graduated in 2003 (with a 4.0 average) and received Temple’s “Top Scholar” award.

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.
