Weekend Anchor / Reporter
Susana Franco is a Southern California girl and is happy to be working in “America’s Finest City.” She joined the San Diego 6 team in June of 2011.
Her love for journalism began in high school when her English teacher praised her writing and encouraged her to write for the school newspaper. “After doing my first interview and writing my first story, that’s when I knew I wanted to be a storyteller,” Susana said.
She headed to San Diego State University and graduated with a degree in broadcast journalism and Spanish. She also attended San Diego City College, where she earned an Emmy for her on-air coverage of the 2007 wildfires.
Susana landed her first on-air job in Yuma, Arizona as an anchor/reporter/producer.
When Susana is not working, she is running marathons, hiking, reading, teaching club boxing and spending quality time with her husband, family, friends and two dogs.
