#MediaMonday – Erin Monaghan

Today’s #MediaMonday comes to us from Erin Monaghan, a news producer at AZ Family.

How did you get started in broadcast news?

I started my career in broadcast news as an intern at Metro Networks in Scottsdale. I also interned with Arizona Highways Television, CBS5 and ABC15’s Sonoran Living before I got my first paid position at ABC15.

Share with our readers a bit about your role?

Right now, I’m working as a senior producer for Good Morning Arizona Weekends. I spend my time researching story ideas, booking segments for our shows, coordinating with our crew and regular guests and overseeing the other weekend morning producers’ shows.

What types of pitches would you like, if any?

I love hearing a variety of pitches! From human interest topics and hard-hitting stories, to new businesses and events happening around town.

Favorite type of music?

I’ve always been a fan of indie rock music and ‘90s alternative!

Favorite color?

It is a tie between aqua and Barbie pink

Favorite TV shows or movies?

My all-time favorite shows are Lost and Twin Peaks, followed by Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, Dark and What We Do in the Shadows.

Favorite local restaurants or other haunts?

I love Crepe Bar, Postino and Hillside Spot (and Friendly’s when I’m back home in New York)
