Reporter Susy Solis joined CBS 11 in January of 2011. Prior to that, she spent four years at KXAS, where she produced an Emmy-nominated series about her hometown, El Paso, Texas. “My El Paso” examined the effects of drug war violence from neighboring Ciudad Juarez, Mexico on the city of El Paso, its people and even Susy’s own family.
Before moving to Dallas, Susy was a morning anchor at NBC affiliate KTSM in El Paso. She began her career in broadcasting as a morning co-host of a radio show called “Mike and Susy Mornings” before she made the switch to television news. She was named one of El Paso’s “Top 30 Under 30” during her time on the radio.
Susy earned her bachelor’s degree in communications from the University of Texas El Paso. She’s the product of a close-knit family, and when she’s not digging for stories, Susy enjoys spending time with friends playing trivia or kickball. (Her parents, brother and sister and their families all reside in North Texas.) She feels it is important to invest in the next generation, which is why she mentors minority teens. You can also often find Susy playing soccer, doing yoga or watching North Texas sports teams in action. Please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
