WPIX Names Former Beauty Pageant Winner Traffic Anchor

Kaitlin+Monte+Swimwear+Bikini+E8ypAwhz4OnlFor those of you tossing and turning until WPIX names its new traffic reporter, this is your big day!

Tuned In has learned exclusively that Channel 11 has hired Kaitlin Monte for morning traffic duty. Viewers may recognize Monte from her work on WNBC’s Weekend Today in New York. She has hosted the interactive trivia segments since 2012. She’s also been on SNY’s Mets Insider.

Before TV, Monte was a beauty queen. Representing New York, she placed second in the 2012 Miss America pageant.

We’re told the leggy brunette will begin at PIX sometime next month.

Monte, 25, succeeds Julie Grauert, who lasted less than a year on the job.
