Susan is a native New Yorker who has been heard on the radio in the New York area since 1986.

Before joining 1010WINS in December 1998, Susan was Program/Music Director at WFAS-FM in White Plains, New York where she also served as both Midday and Evening (Love Songs) host.  Susan was a weekend personality at K-JOY 98.3 on Long Island and a freelance News Anchor for Shadow Broadcast Services, heard on WNEW-FM, WQCD and WKXW-New Jersey 101.5.

After working freelance at WINS weekend mornings, and as a primary weekday fill-in anchor, Susan was made a staff news anchor in 2006, working nights and later middays from 2012-2021. In April of 2021 she was moved to morning drive, second half of the hour. In July 2023, Susan made history as the first woman to anchor top of the hour in a full time drivetime capacity, and only the third staff anchor in WINS history to do top hour mornings.  See coverage in Radio Online, Radio Ink, Radio Insight, Inside Radio, Radio Facts.
