Monika Olejnik, formally Monika Wasowska (born November 21, 1956) is a Polish radio, newspaper and TV journalist.
Daughter of Tadeusz Olejnik, Security Service officer at Ministry of Internal Affairs. Her father's involvement with the communist regime in People's Republic of Poland has been brought up by right-leaning journalists questioning Olejnik's objectivity. The questions have been raised regarding personal motives behind criticizing investigation of communist crimes undertaken in democratic Poland.
During the Martial Law in 1982 she started work in then communist controlled Polish Radio III and stayed there until 2000. She was well known for her interviews with politicians and other public individuals in "Salon Polityczny Trójki" (Political Salon of Channel 3).
