Jasmine Monroe joined the Channel 3 News team from NBC affiliate, WFMJ-TV, in Youngstown, Ohio, where she was a morning show out-and-about reporter.

She was born and raised in Pittsburgh, where she attended Penn Hills High School. At the age of 15, Monroe knew that reporting was in her future.

Monroe continued her education at Clarion University and reported local news at the campus TV and radio station.

After earning her B.S. in broadcast journalism, she moved to Washington, D.C. where she interned at BET Networks as an assistant in the pre-production, production and post-production of the 2012 BET Awards! She also created questions for the red carpet segment Mad Swagg TV Show and aided in the placement of commercials for the Pink Luster’s promotional advertisement during BET’s #1 show "106&Park."

Before coming to Youngstown, she interned at KDKA-TV and Radio in Pittsburgh where she helped produce KDKA Radio's "Inside Story" with Marty Griffin.

While at WFMJ, she reported on everything from Youngstown State University Board of Trustees announcing Jim Tressel as the school’s ninth president, to showcasing the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus and working on "Project Feed Our Valley" that received a 2015 Regional Emmy Award and helped to raise $516,969 and collect 526,388 pounds of food for hungry families in the Mahoning Valley.

"For a girl who defines success by enriching the lives of others, seeing the possible in Cleveland was the perfect fit for me. Plus, coming from Youngstown, I've visited many Cleveland restaurants and plenty of Cavs and Indian games!"
