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.
 
She has been a guest on major TV and cable news channels, including ABC, NBC, FOX and HBO and worked as a commentator on National Public Radio's Morning Edition for four years and has also written for The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The Baltimore Sun and The New York Post.
