There's a perception that any television personality can excel on the radio, but this rarely proves true: TV and radio call for distinctly different skill sets, and plenty of people who've made a good living reading what others have written flounder when required to speak for themselves. But Susie Wargin, who's best known at this point for her work at 9News, is a natural, for logical reasons: She's a radio veteran, having worked at both KTCL and KBPI (and doing sideline reporting for KOA) in addition to her on-camera sports anchoring and reporting. Now she's proving to be just as adept as an afternoon-show talker, interacting smoothly and wittily with co-host Dave Logan, whatever the subject. Her warm demeanor may not make drivers forget about being stuck in traffic, but thanks to Wargin, those jams seem a lot more tolerable.
