CSN Chicago’s Susannah Collins profile


(UPDATE 5-7-13 11:50 A.M.: Susannah releases public statement on her own home page)

UPDATE 5-3-13: Susannah is fired by Comcast SportsNet. This link explains why I believe the Blackhawks themselves had more to do with her dismissal than CSN!!!

Comcast SportsNet officially announced the full-time hire of anchor/reporter Susannah Collins as its newest on-air talent member for the network’s signature nightly sports news program, SportsNet Central.  Collins will also handle on-site, post-game reporting duties throughout the year at home games for all four of CSN’s pro team partners. In other words, she’s the replacement for Sarah Kustok.

Collins can also be followed via Twitter @SusannahCollins.  The announcement was made by Charlie Schumacher, Senior News Director for Comcast SportsNet Chicago.

            Currently the co-host of Comcast SportsNet’s Gas Money sports trivia show, Susannah Collins has already been handling post-game reporting duties for White Sox telecasts, along with reporting and anchoring on SportsNet Central.  Previously, Susannah Collins gained national attention for her on-air work at Showtime Sports, where she appeared as a special correspondent for the network’s weekly studios shows Inside the NFL and Inside NASCAR.  Over the past two years at Showtime Sports, Susannah Collins reported from both Super Bowls in Dallas & Indianapolis, interviewing numerous athletes and celebrities.  Susannah Collins also covered MMA and boxing events for Showtime as a live event reporter and web-feature contributor.

            In addition to her work at Showtime, Susannah Collins also served as a correspondent/reporter for the NFL Network, NBC and CBS over the past two years.  In 2011, Susannah Collins anchored the weekend sports broadcasts at WCBS-TV in New York.

Susannah Collins, who grew up in the Chicago western suburb of Downers Grove, IL, attended Downers Grove North H.S.  She graduated with a degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana in 2001, where, as an undergraduate, worked extensively on both ends of the microphone for student radio station WPGU-FM 107.1.
