Suzanne Lanoue – Writer, reviewer, interviewer, and founder
Suzanne is Founder and President of The TV MegaSite, Inc. Originally from San Diego, CA; she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts (in the fields of Music, English and History) in 1986 at the Stony Brook University. She started working for Ask Jeeves about ten years later as one of the search engine’s first employees. She started The TV MegaSite while working there and was at Ask Jeeves for almost 5 years before being laid off with 25% of the company in 2000 (with a great severance package).
Watching many hours of TV as a child, reading many plays and books about the stage and screen, and acting in high school drama, led to her lifelong love of and interest in TV and movies, acting, and Hollywood. Working full time on the site for over 20 years has been gratifying and allows her to receive many free DVDs to review for the site and to interview many TV actors, writers, and producers by phone on a frequent basis. She also receives links to TV shows before they air and reviews many new upcoming series.
Besides writing and interviewing, she also has managed the site’s other volunteers; sought out appearances, news and spoilers; makes daily daytime soap transcripts; helps with the site’s forums and mailing lists; builds other pages for the site; writes two blogs; posts on our Instragram, Facebook and Twitter feeds; and anything else that’s needed.
As of July, 2019, Suzanne is focusing more on writing for the site and letting Brenda (now Editor-in-Chief) do more managing and editing of the site.
Suzanne is also helping in slowly moving The TV MegaSite’s content to and creating new content at http://tvmeg.com
Suzanne has also been a professional singer in a band and has many interests and hobbies. She currently lives in Magnolia, Arkansas with her husband of 36 years, David, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs at Southern Arkansas University. Suzanne just graduated in May, 2020, from SAU with a second B.A., in Mass Communication (Mass Media) in order to improve opportunities for this site. A member of Alpha Chi Honor Society, she graduated with a 3.94 grade average after taking part-time classes for two-and-a-half years.
