Monnie in the Morning
Monnie graduated from Winthrop University in 1983 with a BA in Communications. Thirty years later, she earned her Master’s Degree in Communications & Leadership from Gonzaga University.
Monnie made her radio debut in 1989 in her hometown of Greenville, SC. Her first broadcasting job was a happy accident, after her best friend, Stacy, introduced her to the morning hosts at a country station.
Initially hired as a news announcer, Monnie’s perky personality led to many years of success as the sidekick on the Ellis & James Morning Show on WSSL 100. Later, she held morning show positions at 96.9 WKKT in Charlotte and the legendary KRST in Albuquerque, NM. In 2011, she moved to Wilmington, NC, where she was a stage actress and co-starred in one episode of HBO’s “Eastbound and Down.” Prior to landing in Myrtle Beach, Monnie anchored the news on 106.1 FM Talk in Raleigh, NC.
Monnie is the proud “cat mom” of Irwin the Mouse Hunter and enjoys singing, cooking, decorating, gardening, volunteering and taking long walks in town and along the shore.
