Monique Blyther is a Jill of all trades involving multimedia, with over 10 years of experience in digital news production.
Upon graduating with honors from George Mason University with a degree in Journalism, Monique began her journalistic career at Gannett Company where she served as Assistant Producer, overseeing the digital production of national print publications. With interests in broadcast journalism, Monique moved on to become Senior Technical Advisor with Fairfax Public Access Channel 10, where she took on many duties — among them assisting with the production of live and prerecorded TV shows, and teaching production courses to students with various aspirations within the field.
During that time Monique hosted her first radio show, “Real Talk Radio,” and produced her first television series, “Smart Mom.” In less than six months, this TV series earned 2.5 million views online and several thousand followers. Her internet success served as a gateway to her next opportunity as Producer for Time Warner Cable.
For five years Monique produced entertainment content for twcc.com and managed its social media presence. When the company was acquired by Charter Communications, she decided to follow her deep-rooted passion for radio by joining the Traffic Center at WTOP.
Monique is freelance Traffic Reporter for the station and continues to teach video production at FPA Channel 10. Additionally, Monique is studying Digital Marketing at Georgetown University. In her free time, she relishes in exploring new adventures with her favorite media star — her son.
