Former KATV'er to CNN

Source: CNN Press Release Susan Roesgen, a veteran broadcaster with more than a decade of experience covering New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, joins CNN as a full-time correspondent assigned to the network’s new Gulf Coast bureau, it was announced today by Jack Womack, senior vice president of domestic news operations and administration for CNN/U.S.

“My new role with CNN enables me to join the top news organization in the world while remaining based in a city I love: New Orleans,” Roesgen said. “I hope to give viewers a true and broad sense of the recovery efforts along the Gulf Coast in addition to providing the best reports on other news from the region.”

CNN opened CNN Gulf Coast in September to give the network a vantage point in covering the entire Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina. The bureau, one of 11 across the United States, is equipped to perform multiple live shots and supports all CNN networks, including CNN Newsource, the network’s syndicated news service.

Roesgen comes to CNN from WGNO-TV, where she has worked as the 10 p.m. news anchor since November 2003. For the past four years, she has also served as a host and reporter for a variety of broadcast and news outlets. Her projects included live field reports of rocket launches at Cape Canaveral, Fla.; hosting and production of a Pearl Harbor documentary for the National D-Day Museum; and reports for National Public Radio.

Roesgen moved to New Orleans in 1993 as a co-anchor of evening newscasts for WDSU-TV. She earned an Emmy award for a report on cemetery thefts and a state Associated Press award for a multi-part series on Israel. She left New Orleans for one year in 2001 to serve as co-anchor of National Geographic Today for the National Geographic Channel.

Her other anchoring duties have included stints with WABC-TV in New York City, KFMB-TV in San Diego and KATV-TV in Little Rock, Ark. Roesgen graduated with highest honors from Montana State University, earning a bachelor’s degree in English.

Susan Roesgen is in the top three talents to ever come through Little Rock and is quite possible the best.

Here's to hoping she keeps this gig for sometime.

Forgot to mention that KATV will never embrace a connection with Susan. The good ol' boys over there were used to women who would flirt and occasionally follow through. Susan was all business and a little too intense for their liking. That spelled disaster for Susan as management knew what would happen if they popped her bra like they did with some of the others.

KATV has Susan Roesgen in part to thank for their current ratings dominance. It would be nice if they'd give her the due she deserves.

Kind of off the subject, but all the "Susan" talk reminded me of another anchorsusan, Susan Rodman. Anyone know what became of her? She was a reporter and anchor at the old Channel 11 and last I heard, she was in Memphis and dating Steve Clark.

Susy Roesgen is a great person and probably the most strongest person I have ever met. I am blessed with her friendship. She is not so uptight like some people think, as I was reading in previous logs. She is the kindest, nicest, warm loving home body I know. When it comes to work it is work! When it comes her private life, then she lights up:) you guys focus on your work, and work! no game playing.... A.D.

She wasn't uptight when she delivered news in San Diego at KFMB-TV back in the late eighties - and in fact, she was one of the friendliest, nicest, smiling newscasters on the tube. She was much younger then and a real asset to the generally depressing "accident claims 5" type of newscasts. A career of climbing the cut-throat newsanchor ladder hardens folks, unfortunately. It's hard to be a CNN newscaster and not proudly tout leftist ideals & credentials. Most folks noticed when she split for greener pastures. Of course nowadays with the web who watches newscasters at all? I wish her well.

Susan Rodman's TV career (if it's the same one I'm thinking of) came to a screeching halt (pun intended) when she got a DUI during her stent as a news anchor at WSAV in Savannah, GA. Big embarrasment for her at the time.
