Monica's Biography

Mother Taught Her She Could Do It All:"She actually ended up working two jobs, simultaneously, and she applied to go graduate school to get a master's degree…in very, very difficult times with no help, whatsoever."

Growing Up: Stubborn, focused, directed, a kind of a "happy warrior spirit from a very early age."

Early Political Interest: At 11 years old, "When President Reagan became President in 1980, I was fascinated by his personality, by his charisma and by his message."

What To Do For Fun: Sleep, bike ride, and hike.

Conservative radio and television commentator Monica Crowley began her career in radio on WABC-AM New York as a frequent guest on the "Batchelor and Alexander Show".
 
When the Fox News Channel launched in 1996, Crowley joined the network as a political and international affairs analyst. In 2002, Monica began hosting “The Monica Crowley Show.” on WABC Radio in New York which now airs nationally. In 2005, Crowley joined MSNBC as a political analyst, and co-host of "Connected: Coast to Coast."
 
Crowley holds two Masters degrees and a Ph.D. in international affairs from Columbia University and worked as a Foreign Policy Assistant to former President Richard Nixon from 1990 until his death in 1994. Crowley's experience with Nixon prompted her to write two best-selling books, Nixon off the Record: His Candid Commentary on People and Politics and Nixon.
