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.

I'm really excited to become a part of the South Central Illinois community and a member of the WJBD news staff!
