Broadcast Pioneers member Sue Serio welcomes each new day with FOX 29 viewers, as weather anchor for "Good Day." Sue joined the WTXF-TV team as weather anchor in December of 1997. Since then, she has taken her forecasts on the road to hundreds of places: from Lancaster to the Poconos…from Princeton to Cape May, and to just about every landmark in Philadelphia.
Before joining the Fox team, Sue was the co-anchor of “ Wake-Up!” the top-rated morning show on WIVB-TV, the CBS affiliate in Buffalo, NY. She also co-anchored the station’s News at Noon. Before that, Sue was on the air at WHYY-TV 12 (PBS) in Philly, where she worked as weather anchor and feature reporter. That was also where she met her future husband: Broadcast Pioneers member Bill Vargus.
Serio has hosted numerous radio shows. She worked for stations WKSZ-FM in Philadelphia, where she was co-host of a morning show; WMGK-FM Philadelphia, where she was host and producer of the popular "Magic After Dark," and WBAL-AM in Baltimore where she was mid-day radio host and personality.
Graduating cum laude with a B.A. in mass communications, Serio attended college at Towson State University in Maryland. She started her career in radio while attending Towson State in 1977. A five time Emmy nominee from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Serio was honored by the Academy in November, 1994, when she received the Outstanding Individual Achievement Award for weathercaster. In June, 1995, she received a Certificate in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. She is also the Co-Chair for the local Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk.
During her free moments, Serio enjoys spending time with her family, exploring the computer, crafts and needlework, and going to the movies. Serio and her husband, Bill Vargus, currently reside in our area with their daughter, Nia Patricia.
