CLEVELAND, Ohio — Meteorologist Susanne Horgan returns to NewsChannel 5’s Good Morning Cleveland on Wednesday, February 6th. Following the birth of her first child Thomas in December, Susanne spent her maternity leave learning the ropes of motherhood away from the Power of 5 weather center.

“We really look forward to having Susanne back on the morning newscast,” states Paul Kiska, co-anchor of Good Morning Cleveland. “Her sense of humor and quick wit really keep us on our toes during those early hours.”

“I’ll still be getting up at 2AM, but at least I’ll be getting up with him,” predicts Susanne.

“I was talking to Mark Johnson, and he said he’s looking forward to the first big snow storm when Thomas has to be in the back of the weather center and Mark is babysitting,” she jokes.

Susanne joined NewsChannel 5 as “Good Morning Cleveland” meteorologist in December 2005. Prior to that, she spent three years with WLWT Eyewitness News 5 in Cincinnati. Susanne has also worked in northern California and Indiana.

Susanne graduated from Indiana University and completed her broadcast meteorology certification from Mississippi University. She calls Indianapolis home and enjoys reading, running and spending time with family and friends, though being a new mom has changed some of that. Susanne, husband Patrick, and son Thomas reside in Cleveland’s western suburbs.
