Susan Cook-Scheerer is the host of the Region’s favourite talk show, daytime.
A local gal through and through, Susan was born and raised a North Easthope Township farm girl – the Original “Farmer’s Daughter”, as she says, and attended high school in Stratford. She currently resides in Wellesley with her husband, Roger; children, Justin, Kelsey and Carley, and their dog Ruby – who they adopted after seeing her on a KW Humane Society Adopt-a-Pet segment on daytime.
Susan’s media career started in radio in Stratford. She then moved on to Kitchener, where she eventually ended up as part of the morning show at 570 News. Eventually, she heard about an opening for a talk show co-host at Rogers TV, and was given the opportunity to join daytime. It has been the perfect fit for someone who is a ‘people person’, and loves finding out about the great things happening around this community.
Why Local Matters to Susan: “Like they say in the real estate biz, it’s all about ‘Location, Location, Location!’ As the Region’s favourite talk show, daytime is the one place viewers can find out about things going on in their own backyard.”
In her spare time, Susan is a proud Hockey Mom, a curling enthusiast, and enjoys music and reading a good book. Susan is actively involved in the community. She belongs to 100 Women Who Care Waterloo Region and sits on the Planning Committee for Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake Waterloo Region.
She and her family are also involved with National Service Dogs as a Weekend Foster Family for Puppies in Training.
“I’ve had the privilege through my work to see how generous this community is. I’ve interviewed so many great people who see a need, and find new and creative ways to help out. They’ve taught me that we all have something to give – whether it’s our time, our talents, or a financial donation. Giving Tuesday puts the spotlight on what can happen when we all join in the spirit of giving, and come together as a community to truly make a difference.”
