It’s hard to believe, but this year marks the 36th anniversary of the Chrisman Morning Show. The original show officially kicked off in January 1976 – on the former Twin W (WWPA). After graduating from the University of Miami with a Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Communications in May of 1975 – I stayed in south Florida for awhile job hunting – ran out of money – came back to my hometown of Williamsport for a short stint with the intention of heading back that fall to Florida.

Susan arrived for jury selection in June 2011 wearing curlers in her hair and mismatched shoes, and reportedly told Denver District Court Judge Anne Mansfield she “broke out of domestic violence in the military” and had “a lot of repercussions,” including PTSD.

Her plans were foiled 4 months later when she called a local radio station to brag about how she got out of jury duty.
