Susanne Brunner joined the FOX 16 news team in June 2013 as the Weekend Evening News Anchor.
Susanne comes to Arkansas from the Golden State where she anchored and reported along California’s Central Coast. There, she covered a number of big stories that gained national attention. She brought LIVE breaking news coverage of a chunk of Highway 1 that fell into the ocean near Big Sur. She also covered a massive rock slide that trapped dozens of families, and reported on the largest methamphetamine seizure in U.S. history.
Susanne started her career in Tri-Cities, Washington as an Anchor and Reporter. She's a proud graduate of Yuba College and San Francisco State University. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Radio and Television with an emphasis in Broadcast Journalism. During school, she anchored and reported for a cable news program. She was awarded Best News Story for her coverage of the Olympic Torch Relay, which made its only U.S. appearance in San Francisco in 2008. Susanne first stepped foot in a newsroom at CBS 13 in Sacramento, where she interned and even got the opportunity to work a casting call for “America’s Next Top Model.”
Susanne comes from a big family (she’s half Filipino and Austrian) and is a proud military brat. Her father and older brother served in the U.S. Air Force, so she’s moved plenty of times throughout California and even spent some time living in the Philippines. However, she calls Placerville or what most people know as “Old Hangtown” home.
When Susanne isn’t anchoring on the desk or reporting in the field, she likes to stay active outdoors and explore all the Natural State has to offer.
