Monica Castro joined the KAKE News team in April 2014.
Monica was born and raised in Houston, Texas. However, she made her way to the Sunflower State to attend Kansas State University. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in broadcast journalism and a minor in leadership studies.
Before coming to KAKEland, Monica worked at KSNT in Topeka and after that spent two years working in Bryan-College Station, Texas at KAGS-HD News.
While a Texan girl at heart, she says Kansas has become her second home. She enjoys K-State football and basketball and cheering on her Houston sports teams. In her spare time Monica likes to take road trips to visit friends or family. She has even spent time shooting short documentaries on World War II veterans in Europe and recently in Bedford, VA.
Monica is happy to call Wichita home. If you have any story ideas she would love to hear them!
