janicewright20100910 kcbs 0748r1 Janice WrightJanice Wright has been in Bay Area Broadcasting for over 30 years.  Yikes!  She must be old.  She loves the people and places her reporting at KCBS has taken her to, but has the most fun on the week-ends, anchoring the morning news with her pal Dave Padilla.

Her other news pal is at home, KPIX 5 and KCBS reporter Mike Sugerman.  The Sugerman-Wrights have been married for 28 years . Yikes again!   They raised two sons in San Francisco.  Neither one seems even slightly interested in following in their parents’ professional footsteps.
