Harmony Project is excited to welcome Matt Barnes and Monica Day, co-anchors of NBC4 Today, to the Columbus Commons stage on June 7, 2018, to emcee The Concert for Community.

Matt and Monica are living the “Local 4 You” brand, as they both grew up in Central Ohio.

Matt is a Hartley Hawk who was born and raised on Columbus’ East side. He is a proud graduate of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University. Matt began his broadcasting career at NBC4 as an intern. After a short time working in Augusta, GA, he came back to Columbus having landed his dream job working in his hometown.

Monica Day also grew up on the East side of Columbus, graduating from Whitehall Yearling High School. She began her career at NBC4 in 2006, working as the traffic and entertainment reporter before working her way up to morning anchor. While working at NBC4, Monica was crowned Miss Ohio 2008, representing the Buckeye State at the Miss USA competition where she won the title of Miss Congeniality.

Matt and Monica both say their favorite part of the job is helping local charities and community members tell their stories.

Join Matt and Monica at The Concert for Community on Thursday, June 7!
