Susie Wargin joined 9NEWS in September of 2001 as the Prep Sports Anchor. Three years later, she was hired to be the morning weekday Sports Anchor. Susie anchored sports on the morning show for 9 years before cutting back a bit to spend more time with her family. Currently she works on special projects, fills in at the sports anchor desk and also reports.
Born in Denver and raised in Broomfield, Susie began her communications career in Fort Collins as an intern in radio, while going to college at Colorado State University.
After graduating with a bachelor's degree in Speech Communications from CSU, KIIX-AM hired her as a board operator (fancy title for a "button pusher"). Like most people that get into radio, her dream was to be a Deejay. That became a reality in December of '92 when she DJ'd on Christmas day for KTCL (93.3FM). From there, Susie worked three years of overnights and weekends, however, paying dues is part of the business. In November of 1995 Susie became the midday DJ at KBPI in Denver, where she "Rocked the Rockies" for almost 9 years.
While Susie loves music, her main passion is sports. In February of 1998 she began anchoring sports updates during "The Zoo" on 850-KOA and eventually became the first full-time female sports reporter for KOA. During that time she also spent two years as the radio sideline reporter for Colorado State football games and hosted a variety of sports programming for KOA. Susie returned to her KOA family in June 2014 and co-hosts Colorado's Afternoon News with Dave Logan from 3-5 p.m.
An avid cyclist, runner and triathlete, Susie is married to Mike and they have two children, Justin and Samantha. Susie and her family spend a lot of time partaking in sports, attending sporting events and traveling.
