Jane, a native of the Philippines, is the eldest of three children born to an engineer father and nutritionist mother.  After pitstops in Canada, New York and New Jersey, the Monreals finally settled in south Florida, where Jane accepted an academic scholarship to the University of Miami and earned a bachelor’s degree with honors in international finance and marketing.  She was also captain of the university’s nationally recognized dance team and was crowned Miss Asian American Florida. 

Her first job in the business was as an intern in corporate media relations at NBC.  Her break came in 1994 delivering traffic reports on L.A.‘s all news station, KFWB, which ultimately earned her a Golden Mike award.  She was also featured on smooth jazz station, 94.7 the Wave. 

Jane is most recently known for being a morning on-air fixture on KCNC, the CBS affiliate in Denver.  In addition to reporting traffic, Jane was the general assignment reporter, as well as fill-in anchor.  Prior to that position, Jane was at KABC in Los Angeles, serving as the station’s “Resident Dance Expert” during each season of ABC’s hit show, “Dancing with the Stars.”  In 2007, she also helmed the station’s inaugural live webcast of the Academy Awards Arrivals Show, subsequently anchoring the annual webcast “On The Red Carpet” through the 2009 Oscar Ceremony.
