Susie Fowler-Watt presents BBC Look East, the BBC’s regional news programme for the Eastern Counties.
After school, Susie won an English Speaking Union scholarship to study in the USA. She then went to Cambridge University, where she read Philosophy and Experimental Psychology. She went on to do a Postgraduate Diploma in Broadcast Journalism at the London College of Printing, and was awarded a BBC Bursary.
Susie has worked for the BBC since she was 21. She started out in local radio, as Lowestoft reporter for BBC Radio Suffolk. Later she moved to Westminster where she was an Assistant Producer for BBC political programmes. She went on to become the political correspondent for BBC East. During her career, she has interviewed many of the country’s top politicians, including the last four prime ministers.
In 1997, Susie was offered the job presenting BBC Look East, and has worked alongside co-presenter Stewart White ever since. Both of them have editorial input, and will sometimes report for the programme as well.
Susie is married to Alex Dunlop, a reporter for BBC Look East. They live in Norfolk with their two children, as well as a dog, a cat, chickens and ducks. In her spare time, Susie sings in a choir, and enjoys the cinema, theatre and kick-boxing!
