Bruce Sussman has been on Portland TV screens for more than 20 years now and he's excited to be helping out at KATU these days in both weather and news.
Although he's won two Northwest Regional Emmys for Best Weather Anchor, he actually started his career as a news reporter in Yakima, Washington many years ago.
He also was a reporter and anchor in Spokane, Washington before coming to Portland.
He attended the Journalist School at The University of Missouri and he became a certified meteorologist through Mississippi State University.
Bruce and his wife have been married for almost two decades. They have two very energetic boys.
Bruce's favorite thing about the Northwest? Our summers. Those perfectly comfortable days with no rain and no humidity, plus sun that lasts well into the evening.
In the heart of our rainy season you'll often hear him talking about what he wants to do 'next summer!'
