Lisa Monahan Lisa Monahan

Lisa Monahan was born and raised in the Oklahoma City metro. Lisa grew up watching News 9 and, as a young girl, would say to her family and friends, "Someday, I'm going to join the team at News 9." That childhood dream turned into reality in August 2011 when she was hired as a general assignment reporter.

Currently, Lisa anchors the station's top-rated weekend evening newscasts and reports during the week.

Lisa is a respected journalist with a reputation for being fair, but also for being persistent and willing to ask the tough questions. In more than a decade of reporting in Oklahoma, Lisa has become known for her reporting on all aspects of the criminal justice system. She is, however, equally adept at telling feature stories and doing detailed investigations. Her incisive reporting on teachers who have inappropriate relationships with their students was rewarded with an Emmy in 2014. Earlier investigations into speed traps and dog dealing in Oklahoma led lawmakers to strengthen regulations in the state.

A graduate of Mustang High School, Lisa began her pursuit of a career in journalism as a student at the University of Central Oklahoma. While at UCO, she interned with Entertainment Tonight in Hollywood and worked for KCSU-TV in Edmond. Those experiences helped her land her first jobs in the business, in Sherman, TX and at another local TV station in Oklahoma City.

Wherever she has worked, Lisa has understood the importance of telling stories that matter to the community, especially here in Oklahoma, her lifelong home.

When she's not on the job, Lisa is most likely cherishing time with her family. She and her husband, Philip, have a daughter, Claire, who is the light of their life. Lisa is also an avid photographer, with her own photography business. She enjoys working out and playing with her dogs, Ellie & Kayla.

While many people joke that they are "living the dream," Lisa feels as though she really is. And she couldn't be happier than to be doing it in her hometown, where family and friends provide what she says is the backbone to her success.

Lisa would love to tell your story. You can connect with her by email.
