Candace Monacelli joined the FOX 17 News team in June of 2017 and quickly fell in love with this community.

Candace was born and raised in the suburbs east of Cleveland, Ohio where she enjoyed growing up on the lake. She graduated from the accredited journalism school at Kent State University and became a certified meteorologist at Mississippi State University. Go Flashes and Bulldogs!

She previously worked at WFMJ in Youngstown, Ohio bringing viewers along on every adventure and keeping them informed through the storms. Candace is thrilled to be in West Michigan and enjoys everything weather from a healthy summer thunderstorm to lake effect snow.

When not forecasting, Candace enjoys running, relaxing at the beach and sinking her teeth into every cookie West Michigan has to offer. She also met her husband here and has been married since the fall of 2022.
