Monica Rix, who’s spent the last 6 years covering news in Central Florida, has accepted a reporter position with Fox News Radio.
“This is the biggest move of my career! It’s incredibly exciting, but nerve racking and overwhelming too. I feel like it hasn’t really sunk in yet,” said Rix.
The Miami native got her start working as a television reporter in Wilmington, N.C., then making the jump to Huntsville, Ala. She came to News 13 in Orlando in 2007, later making the switch to radio as an anchor/reporter with WDBO News 96.5 in 2011.
“I’ve covered a lot of crazy stories in Orlando that got national attention. It’s such a unique market. I know New York has its fair share of big news, but I’ll miss reporting on really strange stuff!”
Former WDBO colleague Jonathan Beaton spent many hours in the newsroom alongside Rix, emphasizing her professionalism and desire to get the facts right the first time.
“Monica will truly be missed. She’s a consummate professional with a real knack for storytelling. Orlando’s loss is truly Fox News’ gain.”
Rix will be based out of the Fox News studios in the News Corp. building in Midtown Manhattan. While it’s a huge step forward in her career, Rix says she’ll never forget her time in Central Florida.
“I’ve worked with great people. Their experience and support has helped me grow. They know who they are and I can never thank them enough.”
