Our Sponsors

Laura Diaz Monserrate’s career has just taken a huge leap.

She jumps 116 markets to become a reporter/fill-in anchor at WKMG. Monserrate has been the 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. anchor in Monroe, La. — market No. 135 — at the duopoly of KTVE-NBC 10 and KARD-Fox 14.

But the move to O-Town is a homecoming for her. She is originally from Orlando, attended the University of Florida and interned at Local 6.
