Susan Roesgen may not be a New Orleans native, but over and over again she’s been drawn back to the Crescent City.
On assignment as a national reporter and anchor, Susy has gone on patrol with the U.S. Army in Haiti, bartered for a camel in Cairo and sailed on the Sea of Galilee in Israel.
She’s been a television anchor and reporter in several cities across the country, from San Diego to New York, including three separate positions here in New Orleans: first as the evening anchor for WDSU-TV from 1993 to 2000; then as a National Public Radio reporter in New Orleans from 2003 to 2005; and then she was the first correspondent chosen for CNN’s Gulf Coast Bureau, based in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, before she became CNN’s Midwest correspondent, based in Chicago. She was also co-host of “National Geographic Today,” a daily news program broadcast internationally from the National Geographic Channel in Washington, DC.
Susy is also a certified ESL teacher (English as a second language), and she’s a volunteer teacher in the ESL program at Associated Catholic Charities of New Orleans.
