Susan Kim is celebrating 20 years and counting with TODAY'S TMJ4! She started with us in 1994, working both the assignment desk on the weekends and reporting during the week. Her hard work and dedication paid off and she was moved to full-time reporting and then anchoring, shortly after she started in Milwaukee.
Susan has covered many stories during her tenure, including Packers Super Bowls in New Orleans and San Diego, the Falk explosion, and the crane collapse in the building of Miller Park. Susan was recently nominated for an Emmy for her coverage of the Azana Spa Shootings in 2012.
In her many years on the anchor desk of 'Live at Daybreak', she has guided the station's coverage of numerous storms and breaking news, including the giant fire that claimed the Pizza Man restaurant on Milwaukee's East Side. 'Live at Daybreak' has been recognized as the 'Best Morning Newscast' several times by the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association.
Susan also believes in making her community a better place to live. She volunteers a great deal of time helping many organizations but one of her biggest passions is the 'TODAY'S TMJ4 Community Baby Shower' which she helped start in 2001. It's a one-day drive to collect much needed baby items for families-in-need in Southeast Wisconsin. Since its inception, the 'Community Baby Shower' has collected tens of thousands of items and helped countless babies in our area. Susan understands the need first hand, as a mother of three: Madeline, Gabrielle, and Alex.
She lives in a suburb of Milwaukee with her children and husband, Patrick. You can follow Susan on Twitter @susankim4 and on Facebook. You can also join Susan with her 'Live at Daybreak' co-anchor, Vince Vitrano, every Monday through Friday from 4:30-7AM.
