A native of the Pacific Northwest, Suzanne began her news career at a Top 40 station in Washington State, where she graduated from Western Washington University. Since then, she's been rather nomadic, with stints at Minnesota Public Radio, a morning team in Seattle and anchoring and reporting in Oregon. During a brief break from radio several years ago, she was a ramp agent for an airline in Kansas, mainly so her family could fly for free! But she says she also enjoyed bringing those 737's to a spot-on-stop on the tarmac. Marriage has brought her to Louisville, which she says is her favorite city so far. In her free time, Suzanne trains for and runs in marathons and among her favorite prizes is an Epiphone guitar, which was immediately claimed by her teenage son.

Kristen Thoburn - Anchor/Reporter

As a part of the 84WHAS newsroom since 2010, she has begun to hone her skills, being taught by some of the best. Kristen now bats lead off on the Kentucky News Network and reports for WHAS in the wee morning hours, presumably so she could see more of the rabbits that live outside the station. The best way to strike up a conversation with Kristen is to talk about football, world-traveling, or Jeopardy.
