Susie Jones has been with WCCO Radio since 1996. She started as a part-time reporter in the newsroom. She was born and raised in Southeast Minneapolis and is one of four daughters. Susie went to the University of Minnesota and graduated with a degree in speech communications. She got her first job in news, at WXOW TV in La Crosse Wisconsin in 1989, and then moved to Madision Wisconsin in 1993 and worked as a reporter and weekend anchor until she moved back to Minneapolis in 1995. Susie has had many roles with CBS radio. In 2001, she started a new business radio station called KCCO, and hosted an afternoon show. Then in 2003, she began working on WCCO radio as a morning street reporter. In 2004, she began co-hosting a talk show with Pat Miles, then Eleanor Mondale, and then John Hines. Susie has since returned to her “roots” back in the newsroom, as a full-time reporter. She lives in St Louis Park with her two children, who are now 15 and 16 years old.
