Who Is J.C. Monahan, Where Does She Work and Who Are Her Family Members?

J.C. Monahan is an American newscaster whose style of broadcasting has often been described as ‘breathtaking’ in many quarters. She has been hailed for her overarching professionalism in weather forecasting and reporting over the years and has won awards – including an Emmy – in recognition of her efforts. In the process, she has also won over many fans to herself who follow her every move on social media.

The journalist-meteorologist currently works as a newscaster and weather reporter for Boston-based NBC affiliate WBTS. Her dedication to her career remains unwavering just as her fame continues to be on the upward plunge.

Examining J. C. Monahan’s Life Before She Became Famous 

The exact day, month, and year in which J.C. Monahan was born have not been revealed at the moment. This is because the media personality tends to take her personal issues really personal and has, therefore, succeeded in keeping that aspect of her life out of public reach. And even though some reports have claimed that she was born in 1973 but this has not been proven or confirmed. However, we know that she is a native of Newton, a city in Massachusetts.

Although everyone now seems to know the media personality as just J.C. Monahan, her full legal name is Jennifer Catherine Monahan. She only decided to shorten the name as we now know it for media convenience.

We are yet to be certain about where, when, and how Monahan’s basic education took place – including her elementary and high school details. But we know that she has always had the dream of working in the media from her early days which obviously informed her decision to study Broadcast Journalism at the University of Maine from where she graduated in 1994 with a B.A. She also enrolled for the Mississippi State University’s Broadcast Meteorology program. It was after this that she began her foray into the labor market.

A Timeline of Her Career History

WZON, Bangor, Maine – News Director (1996-1998)

Right out of college, J.C. Monahan began her career at WZON, an AM radio station located in Bangor, a city in Maine. There, she worked as a News Director and was very good at the job, winning the hearts of many among her audience. Indeed, as a result of her exceptional reporting and broadcasting skills, Monahan won the highly coveted Associated Press award as well as the Maine Association of Broadcasters award for Best Radio Newscast and Best Series Reporting respectively.

WPXT-TV, Portland, Maine – Weekend Forecaster And Entertainment Reporter (1998-2001)

In spite of the fact that she enjoyed such a great time and a high level of acceptance at WZON, Monahan did not bask so much in the euphoria. Instead, rather than remain at the radio station for too long, she soon transitioned to TV. She moved south to Portland, Maine to work as a weekend forecaster and entertainment reporter for WPXT-TV.

New England Cable News, Needham, Massachusetts – Weekend Meteorologist (2001-2002)

After a brief stay down south with WPXT-TV, J. C. Monahan moved up north once more to start a new job with the New England Cable News (NECN), an NBC Universal-owned cablenews TV network based in Needham, Massachusetts. There, she worked as the weekend meteorologist.

WCVB, Boston, Massachusetts – Anchor (2002-2017)

Between 2002 and 2017, J.C. Monahan had her longest stay with a channel so far working with WCVB, an ABC-affiliated television station located in Boston. At WCVB, she started off as a morning meteorologist. She would later go on to become a co-host of Chronicle, an evening newsmagazine show at the station from 2013.

As a co-host of Chronicle, she also appeared on WMUR-TV talking on a variety of topics that border on lifestyle, culture, and issues in current news alongside Anthony Everett. She also co-anchored a number of other programs at the station during this time – including NewsCenter 5 Midday where she replaced Cindy Fitzgibbon.

WBTS, Boston, Massachusetts – Newscaster And Weather Forecaster (2017 to date)

In June 2017, J.C. Monahan left WCVB at the expiration of her contract with them and moved to WBTS, a low-powered NBC owned-and-operated television station licensed to Boston. She now works with the station. Over the years, the media personality has been very effective in her job and has been variously hailed for her efficiency.

How Much Has J. C. Monahan Earned From Her Career?

The newswoman has certainly made some money for herself through her very eventful career all these long years. Having worked with so many media houses and having gained quite an array of recognition and experience along the way, it is expected that she must, by now, be enjoying a fat bank balance. But just how fat is her bank?

Just like many other details of the veteran journalist’s life, you won’t be surprised that her exact net worth has been a subject of media intrigue over the course of her career. While some recent reports have claimed that she is worth about $12 million, others have pegged her net worth at $10 million. There are other sources which reporting her net worth to be as low as $900,000.

In any case, none of these figures has been confirmed either by Monahan herself or by any authoritative source. According to some reports, the media personality earns around $90,000 as her current annual salary with WBTS. Again, this reporting is yet to be confirmed.

A Peek Into Her Family Life

Also held under the weight of J.C. Monahan’s secretive attitude is the identity of her parents. Just like her date of birth, the names of her mother and father have been elusive over the years. Also, it is not known if she has any sibling with whom she grew up or if she is an only child.

She is, nonetheless, very fond of her kids and very often shows them off on Twitter where she is very active and tweets every now and then to the excitement of her many fans.
