Susan Kimball is an award-winning journalist and former lawyer who spent 25 years in the television news business. She began her career at WAGM-TV in Presque Isle, and was subsequently hired by WCSH-TV in Portland. Susan spent two years as the lead investigative reporter at KSTP in Minneapolis before returning home to Maine and WCSH, where she worked until 2010. Her work has been recognized by a number of organizations, including the Associated Press, the Maine Association of Broadcasters and the Harry Chapin Foundation in New York, from which she received a national award for her reporting on hunger in Maine. Susan was inducted into the Maine Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2011.
Peggy Keyser began her career in television at Cablevision of Connecticut as a reporter, weathercaster, field producer and assignment editor. She was eventually promoted to the position of senior producer of “The Fairfield Exchange,” a popular local daily talk show. Peg moved to Maine to work for WCSH-TV in Portland as a weathercaster on the statewide morning and noon broadcasts. During Peggy’s tenure, the noon newscast at WCSH became the number one noon newscast in the market, with nearly double the number of viewers of the ABC and CBS affiliates combined. She also hosted cooking segments and conducted interviews with Maine newsmakers. Peggy subsequently joined the Maine Public Broadcasting team, hosting two seasons of “True North” -- a half-hour show with segments about intriguing Maine people, places and stories. In 2012, Peg co-created and co-hosted “We’re All Talk,” a weekly talk radio program for women.
