LaMonica Peters Career
As Student Body President, she would address her classmates via closed-circuit TV. She would also go to the top urban L.A. radio station to announce the most popular songs voted on by students. That was her first taste of being in broadcasting and she loved it! After finishing her Communications Studies degree at UCLA, she taught school in the Los Angeles Unified School District but ultimately, she decided to pursue her dream job as a Broadcast Journalist.
She went back to radio where it all began to get her broadcasting career started. Peters volunteered at two local radio stations while still working full-time. She volunteered at KJLH-FM, a station she grew up listening to and where she learned about the positive impact local media outlets can have on a community.
She also worked at KPFK-FM, a public radio station in Los Angeles, where she hosted “The Peters Poll” as a part of public affairs shows. It was her first chance to use social media to interact directly with listeners. Peters would pose a question to the audience about a hot topic on Facebook and then read some of their responses on air.
After working in radio, she made the decision to pursue a career in television news. Soon after, she moved to Greenville, MS to be the Weekend Anchor and Reporter at WXVT. She then moved to WCBI News in Columbus, MS. There she covered the devastation left behind after 23 tornadoes ripped through Mississippi on the same day, taking the lives of 14 people. Peters also interviewed Sabrina Butler, the only woman in America to be exonerated from death row, as she campaigned around the country to eliminate the death penalty.
She was honored to be acknowledged by the Mississippi Associated Press for Public Affairs in 2014. She was awarded a 3-part series on breast cancer. Her Aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer the year before and now thankfully she’s a survivor. She also taught communications and theatre classes at Mississippi State University, the largest college in the state, as well as Mississippi Valley State University.
After working in Mississippi for 3 1/2 years, she headed north to Buffalo, NY as a Reporter/Fill-in Anchor for Spectrum News. She traveled to Flint, MI to cover a Buffalo-based church as they delivered thousands of bottled water directly to the community after the city’s water system had been contaminated.
She covered lots of breaking news and around-the-clock severe weather while filling in as Anchor. In June 2017, she was also honored with a New York State Associated Press Award for Public Service. She contributed to a series of stories about city sidewalk safety after a 7-month-old baby died.
Growing up in sunny Southern California, she has to admit that reporting in extreme weather took some getting used to but some of her most memorable field reports have been weather-related. After working as a freelance Reporter in Seattle for over a year, she is now reporting in Southern CA – San Diego!
