As for his education, he received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in meteorology from Penn State University and began his career in television while he was still in college.
Also, his social media posts don’t suggest his romantic involvement with anyone. So, assumably it might be possible Monahan is yet to get married or find a suitable partner.
Besides, because of his silence regarding his love life, he was also surrounded by gay speculation. But the journalist hasn’t bothered to address his sexuality yet.
Monahan’s Journey To WSB-TV and His Net Worth
Monahan considers himself one of the lucky ones to find his passion early and have a job that he loves. The meteorologist found his interest at the mere age of ten when he woke up early at six to watch news and weather forecast.
Pursuing a career in meteorology, he worked in places such as Pennsylvania, Fort Myers, Orlando, and Seattle. After leaving his work in Seattle, Monahan took his job at WSB-TV Channel 2 as a weekend meteorologist in 2014.

Likewise, he is also known for covering the Florida coast hurricane, historic flooding at Houston, Hurricane Florence in North Carolina, etc.
In 2019, after leaving the former network as a meteorologist, Monahan became the weatherman for the morning show Action News This Morning on Channel 2.
