“Kent Shocknek is second to none when it comes to anchoring breaking news events,” CBS2/KCAL9 General Manager Steve Mauldin said. “Suzie Suh has been a rising star for us and successfully handled every assignment we have given her. And Rich Fields is among the most respected and charismatic meteorologists in Southern California. We feel great about having such an accomplished, well-rounded and likable trio joining our 9 p.m. anchors Sylvia Lopez and Leyna Nguyen to give us a primetime anchor team that will continue to uphold KCAL’s tremendous primetime news legacy.”
Suh was born in South Korea, raised in Orange County and went to school in San Diego. She considers herself a true ‘So-Cal Girl’ at heart but really learned that “there’s no place like home” while moving around the country for her job.
Suzie previously co-anchored the weekend evening news on CBS2 and KCAL9. Before that, Suzie was a General Assignment Reporter for the two stations’ Orange County Bureau. Prior to returning to Southern California, Suzie was a Reporter/Fill-in Anchor/Weekend Assignment Editor for the WB affiliate in ‘Fabulous Las Vegas.’ She also spent a couple of cruel, but beautiful winters in Northwestern Montana where she ‘one-man banded’ for a NBC affiliate.
Suzie’s passion for journalism is rooted in two things: The ability to learn something new every day and meeting the people who teach her those things.
Suzie enjoys hula and hip-hop dancing pretending like she plays golf and spending time with family and friends.
Myomo is a new medical technology that gives stroke patients something they haven’t had…often for up to two decades — arm movement.
Swimming with sharks. Sticking your hand through the bars of the polar bear cage at the zoo. Coming out of the ATM late at night and announcing you just got paid! All pretty dangerous stuff. But to hear some doctors tell it, those things have nothing on something we do all day. For much of the day.
It was a crime and verdict that stunned a nation, but the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson — O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife — literally destroyed her younger sister, Tanya.
With all the stress of a busy day — work, family, pick up the kids, errands, taking work home — unwinding at night is no simple task.
She doesn’t throw as hard as Chad Billingsley. She doesn’t have the accuracy of Clayton Kershaw. And when she throws a pitch at Dodgers Stadium Monday, no one will be even remotely comparing her throws to hurler Ted Lilly’s.
