Monica Wicke

Monica Wicke was born and raised in the Dallas TX area but has happily called New Mexico home since 2018. Knowing television was her calling, she graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a double major in Broadcast Communications and Political Science.

On her way to New Mexico, she was an intern with the Dallas Cowboys for their 2016 season. She then embarked on her first career job, as a Multi-Media Journalist and news producer in Abilene, Texas.

In 2018, she began working as a producer at KRQE. Now she is looking forward to being a co-host on New Mexico living, delving into the community and culture of New Mexico.

In her spare time, she’s an avid golfer and can usually be found on the links. Monica also loves traveling, classic rock music and spending time with her corgi, Charleston.

Logan Rader

Logan Rader is a homegrown New Mexican, who was born and raised in Roswell, New Mexico. After graduating high school in 2011, Logan moved to Albuquerque to attend the University of New Mexico, where he earned a degree in journalism and multimedia with a minor in English. He started his career at KRQE in 2017 as a news producer, and in 2018, he became the sole producer of all 3 of KRQE’s morning lifestyle shows. On top of that, Logan was the lead producer for KRQE’S Balloon Fiesta Specials in 2021 and 2022. Now, Logan is going from behind the camera, to in front of it, working his way up to becoming the co-host of New Mexico Living. 

When he’s not working, Logan loves hanging out with his wife Taylor, and their tight-knit, friend group. He’s also an avid Peloton member and a diehard Cleveland sports fan, thanks to his mother Susan who was born and raised in Akron, Ohio. If he’s not riding his Peloton bike, lifting at the gym, or hanging with his wife and friends, you can catch Logan hanging out with his Bernese Mountain dog named Kosar, who he says is his ride-or-die, best friend.
