Susan Casper is host of Sonoran Living Live on ABC15.
She is a proud military “brat” who had the privilege of spending much of her childhood growing up on Spangdahlem Air Force Base in Germany. Her family’s tour overseas afforded her unbelievable experiences, including watching spectacular fireworks shows along the Rhine River, dining in Paris, walking through windmills in Holland and touring the snow-capped mountains in Switzerland.
Susan’s childhood love of traveling continues into adulthood. She now enjoys traveling to Arizona’s amazing landmarks including the Grand Canyon, discovering vortexes in Sedona, sledding in Flagstaff and boating on Saguaro Lake.
Susan has always loved the media. She picked up her first microphone at age five and has not put it down to this day. She graduated from the University of West Florida in Pensacola with a B.A. degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in English Literature.
Susan has done it all in her almost 20-year broadcast news career, including having the distinction of being the first African-American woman to anchor a primetime newscast in Tampa. She joined ABC15 News team in 2008 as an anchor and reporter before moving to Sonoran Living Live in 2013.
Susan has a passion for wanting to help people do better with their lives. When she is not working, you will find her in the community as a motivational speaker and volunteer.
Susan also enjoys enticing her family’s palate with their favorite dishes like sweet and sassy meatballs on top of spaghetti squash, along with paella and Sprite pound cake.
Susan says one of the best parts of hosting Sonoran Living Live is that she is able to learn new do-it-yourself projects, recipes and trends right along side the audience members.
You can catch Susan on Sonoran Living Live weekdays at 9am on ABC15.
