Multimedia Journalist, Iron Mountain/Kingsford Bureau
School: Arizona State University
Hometown: Los Angeles, California
Monique Lopez joined the TV6 team as the Iron Mountain/Kingsford Bureau Multimedia Journalist in October 2015. She graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University in May 2014 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and Mass Communication.
While attending Arizona State, she participated in FOX Sports Network's Creative University Program where she partnered up with FOX Sports Media Group to assist FOX Sports Arizona executives in executing a new marketing campaign. She also interned at the Harlem Globetrotters in Phoenix and gained her experience in broadcast writing and reporting working as a sports anchor, reporter, producer and assistant producer at the campus radio station, KASC "The Blaze" 1330 AM.
Monique is a sports fanatic, especially when it comes to her Dallas Cowboys and ASU Sun Devils, but being born and raised in Los Angeles, she is also a tried-and- true L.A. Dodgers, Lakers and Kings fan.
In her free time, she loves spending it with her husband, family and friends. Monique enjoys dancing, running, singing karaoke (as horrible as it may sound!), going to the beach and just experiencing new things. She is up for anything and, having just moved to the U.P., she welcomes any fun, exciting suggestions!
Monique is thrilled to be starting her career here at TV 6 and is looking forward to what the Upper Peninsula brings - that is, aside from hitting a deer on the road! On one of the first stories she covered with TV 6, Monique spoke to a man who filled her in on exactly who the people living in the U.P. are: survivors. She plans on being one of them.
If you see her out and about, she loves meeting new people so feel free to say hi and share any story ideas you may have!
