Mike Susko

Chief Meteorologist

Mike is excited to join the FOX56 team as the chief meteorologist.

His love for weather goes back for literally as long as he can remember. Growing up near Philadelphia, PA in Bucks County, he got to everything Mother Nature throws at eastern Pennsylvania. Thunderstorms, tornado warnings, snowstorms, cold outbreaks with temperatures near or below zero, heat waves with temperatures above 100, hurricanes and tropical storms, and flash flooding. You name it, they got it. As a kid, he would go to the windows for hours and watch the clouds and storms roll in.

Mike attended Penn State University and graduated in May 2020 with a B.S. in Meteorology & Atmospheric Science and minors in Earth Systems and Energy Business & Finance (EBF). During his time at Penn State, he participated in Campus Weather Service and served as the organization’s Head of Communications, joined student-run productions “Up in the Air” and “Weather Or Not”, and joined the department’s weeknight weather show “Weather World” as a director/graphics producer and on-air host. Mike was also a meteorology intern at FOX29 Philadelphia.

In addition to his meteorology background, Mike received a Masters's degree in Emergency Management from the Millersville University of Pennsylvania in December 2022.

Prior to joining FOX56, Mike spent two years as a meteorologist at KNWA/FOX24 in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

When Mother Nature is not active and we get those bright sunny days, he loves to enjoy the outdoors by going on a hike, swimming, biking, bowling, scuba diving, or cooking up something on the grill.
