Susan Leigh Taylor
Susan attended Indiana University-Purdue University-Fort Wayne (home of the Mastodons). Her career in radio began at the age of 2, when she called a morning DJ to tell a “knock-knock” joke. She still has trouble with punch lines. Her first radio paycheck came at the age of 16. That first job, as a DJ in Kendallville, Indiana, involved hiding in the basement whenever a tornado warning was issued. The station’s music mix included Lawrence Welk and a personal favorite of Susan’s, Lenny Dee and His Magic Organ.
Later years would see Susan working at much larger stations in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. She has co-anchored KCBS morning newscasts since 1997, and likes to think there’s still a little of the Indiana small-town broadcaster in her approach to the news: telling people what they need to know in a straightforward manner.
Susan lives in Pacifica, having determined that the world cleaves between inland people and coastal people, and she’s of the latter variety. She has been known to buy an item or two on eBay, and really enjoys watching “All-Star Celebrity Poker” on TV.
