Susan Smith-Harmon

Susan Smith-Harmon is an experienced broadcaster and journalist who knows how to bring St. Louis audiences the news that matters to them. Susan comes from a long line of south-St. Louis natives, but spent her childhood all over the Midwest. She began her broadcasting career in public radio while still a student at the University of Missouri-St. Louis (where she earned a B.A. in Communications). She soon made the jump to A.M. news/talk radio, handling assignments from field reporting, airborne traffic, and the anchor desk, to producing and hosting daily talk shows.

Most recently, Susan has worked as a writer and reporter for a national news wire service and dabbled in TV news - producing traffic reports for KSDK-TV’s Today In Saint Louis.

As both a reporter and radio commentator, she’s interviewed hundreds of authors, celebrities, local elected officials and national news-makers. Some of her favorite assignments have included interviewing Willie Nelson on his tour bus, bringing fitness guru Richard Simmons to St. Louis radio callers, and meeting former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush. But her most cherished media memory was helping out at the NCAA’s Junior Journalism Workshop at the 2009 Women’s Final Four Tournament in St. Louis. “Watching the first flickers of journalistic inquisitiveness sparkle in the eyes of junior high girls was really rewarding.”

Susan has built a reputation as a reliable source of information for St. Louis audiences during times of celebration and times national crisis and she’ll keep KTRS overnight listeners well informed with her intelligent, engaging style – bringing you the important stories of the day, along with breaking overnight news.

In addition to KTRS, Susan is a freelance voice performer, copy editor and aspiring romance writer. She’s a mom, a daughter, a Cardinal’s fan and an amateur gourmet.
