Suzanne traveled north from the Sunshine State in 1994 to work at 13WMAZ.
She began her broadcasting adventures at a cable station in her hometown of St. Petersburg, Florida. At Vision Cable, she hosted a community affairs show, and entertainment show and a news magazine program. She also filled in for the sports anchor.
Suzanne was born and raised in St. Petersburg.
After high school, she played basketball for St. Petersburg Junior College and continued her education at the University of Florida Journalism School (much to the frustration, she says, of local Georgia fans!).
The Associated Press has recognized Suzanne for four of her sports features. She was also nominated four times for a national Cable Ace Award. In 2003, she won a Georgia Association of Broadcasters, or a "GABBY", for a sports feature. She wrote a book titled "Cotton, Cornbread, and Conversations - 50 Adventures in Central Georgia". Her second book, "More Cotton Cornbread and Conversations," comes out in March.
Suzanne is most happy when she's on the go. She plays for a local USTA tennis team and pounces around Macon with her cat, Sneakers. Suzanne also likes to play other sports, read, and camp.
