Susanne Brunner joined the news team in June 2013.
Since arriving in Little Rock, Susanne covered breaking news of the 2014 tornado that came through Mayflower and Vilonia. She shared stories of survival, rebuilding, and even found a picture in the rubble, and reunited it with its owner. Susanne has brought attention to tons of litter flooding one of Arkansas’ most important urban watersheds, Fourche Creek. Another one of her reports on Alzheimer’s was nominated for an Emmy Award, and recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists. Susanne is also behind the popular “Job Alert” segment, helping unemployed Arkansans find a job. She has since expanded her report to an annual job fair that attracts hundreds of people. She received the 2016 Goodwill Business Partner Award and was recognized by the State Attorney General for her efforts.
Susanne enjoys traveling, dancing, DIY crafts & projects, checking out new restaurants, and taking golf lessons from her husband, Hayden. They love traveling and exploring the Natural State with their Golden Retriever Sadie.
