Montse Ricossa is a bilingual news anchor and Senior producer at Telemundo Wisconsin and CBS58. You can find her anchoring Telemundo Wisconsin's 11 a.m. show and frequently filling in on the anchor desk on CBS58 News at Noon.

Ricossa joined Telemundo Wisconsin in April of 2022. Before that, she worked at KWQC in Davenport, Iowa as their first bilingual reporter and weekend anchor for three years! That opportunity showed her just how important it is to have representation in media, especially on the news.

Making connections in her community is one of Montse's favorite aspects of being a journalist, and it can be seen in her work. She's spoken at dozens of community events and has plenty more already scheduled out.

Montse has received Emmys recognizing her work in journalism, one of which was from 2023 on Telemundo Wisconsin's Hispanic Heritage Month Stories, as well as another for her reporting back in the Quad Cities. Ricossa has also been honored with Second place for Best Online Personality from the Wisconsin Broadcaster's Association in 2023.

She is a native of Mexico City, Mexico, and earned her bachelor's degree in Journalism and Spanish from Augustana College.

With family in the Chicago suburbs, Montse gets to travel home often. In her free time, Montse likes to read, run, tend to her plants, and get to know the community.
