“I’m thrilled about the opportunity to join a fantastic morning team and to continue to serve our viewers on Good Day Arkansas,” said Brunner.
“Susanne has done a tremendous job over the last two years and is deserving of this new opportunity,” said Fox16 News Director Austin Kellerman. “I think viewers will enjoy waking up with the combination of Susanne, Natalie and Pat. All three are dedicated to what they do and serving Central Arkansas.”
Brunner joined Fox16 in 2013 as a weekend anchor and reporter. In addition to her duties on the desk and out in the field, Brunner has been the face of the popular Fox16 Job Alert segments. Since joining the team, she’s been a hit with viewers steadily growing the overall viewership of the broadcasts she has anchored. This new role allows Susanne to connect with viewers 5 days a week as they prepare for the day ahead.
“Our team understands what mornings are like for our viewers: getting ready for work, preparing kids lunches, feeding the dog,” noted Brunner. “We promise to not waste their valuable time. So we will give them plenty of weather, headlines, let them know what time it is and give them something to smile about on their way out.”
“I think viewers will look forward to see what she brings to the show,” added Meteorologist Natalie Walters. “She will not only keep FOX16 ‘Your Breaking News Leader,’ but will also bring a lot of fun and personality to the mornings.”
Prior to coming to Little Rock, Brunner anchored for stations in California and Washington. She’s a graduate of San Francisco State University.
