Suzanne Goldklang

Suzanne had an unusual start to her broadcasting career. Her first full time TV job was as a shopping host. She talked about gems and everything else under the moon to insomniacs across America as a host on ShopNBC (then known as ValueVision.)  

But after a few years Suzanne ran out of synonyms for "sparkly" and got bit by the news bug.  

Just in time to cover the millennium, Suzanne Goldkang began her journalism career in the Twin Cities at Northwest Community Television's Cable 12 where she was an anchor and reporter for three and a half years.

 She then crossed the Mississippi and headed to Wisconsin as morning anchor at WGBA-TV in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Next stop was Bangor, Maine where she was an anchor at WVII and WFVX, The NYU grad returned to the Big Apple as a reporter and anchor at WLNY, and joined WICZ in August of 2010.

In 2000 she received a Minnesota Emmy Award for a news special comparing the experiences of different generations of veterans.  

She also received a Folio award from the Fair Media Council for education reporting. Suzanne's life was changed at the National Association of Broadcaster's 2006 conference in Las Vegas when she met Ethan Harp, a reporter from San Francisco.

The couple was married 2 years later, just hours before the start of the 2008 convention.  

When she is not working on a newscast, Suzanne loves travel, cooking, theatre, and folk dancing. She has taught public speaking classes at the ACA, and volunteered with Encore Plus at the YWCA. She is also the honorary chair of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Binghamton "Light the Night" 2011.
