Stephanie Susskind joined the WINK News team in April 2012 and is thrilled to be back in her home state. You can catch her anchoring WINK News Weekend Morning and reporting during the week. Before joining WINK, Stephanie spent 3 1/2 years at CBS-affiliate WMAZ in Macon, Georgia as a reporter and morning anchor. Stephanie's most memorable story while in Georgia was covering the local National Guard unit's deployment to Afghanistan, and return home. For her coverage, the brigade commander gave her a U.S. flag that flew over the troops while they served overseas.

Stephanie graduated from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) in 2008 with a degree in Telecommunications. She is a huge Gator fan and you can always find her cheering on the Gators during football season. She's proud to have attended UF during the "Tebow era" when the Gators won multiple football and basketball national championships. Her goal is to make it back to Gainesville for at least one game a season.

Since she started doing the elementary school morning announcements in 4th grade, Stephanie knew she wanted to be a reporter. She's never lost that passion for story telling and trying to help others. Stephanie was born and raised in Boca Raton, Fl., and loves having family so close by with just a quick trip across Alligator Alley. When not reporting, anchoring, or watching the news, Stephanie enjoys the beach, gym, cooking, movies and exploring the beautiful sights of Southwest Florida!
