Rob Sussman


WJBD Multimedia Journalist/Afternoon Anchor


From a young age, my desire to be in media was strong. It started as I was listening to talk stations in my hometown of Cleveland while growing up the son of the city's "most watched" weatherman.

I went to college at Illinois State University to major in Mass Media, and started my career at student station WZND before moving to local stations WIHN/WBBE/WWHX where I did news, promotions, and was the Night Jock at WIHN. I came to WJBD in July of 2013.

Despite being a born and raised city boy, I do have some local roots. I went to high school at Wesclin Sr. High School in Trenton, in Western Clinton County and graduated with my associates at Kaskaskia.

Media runs in the blood. My father is veteran Cleveland, Ohio media personality Brad Sussman and my uncle is legendary San Francisco talk host Brian Sussman.

I love being a part of the South Central Illinois community and a member of the WJBD news staff!
