A familiar figure on Channel 3 News is leaving Vermont. Susie Steimle, a reporter for WCAX, is headed to Providence, R.I., where she will serve as a reporter and occasional anchor for the NBC affiliate station WJAR. Steimle has reported for WCAX since February 2011. As the station’s Montpelier bureau chief, she covered politics and government.

“Leaving this beautiful state is certainly bittersweet,” Steimle said, but she is looking forward to an “opportunity to work in a larger market and a chance to further my career in this industry.” At WJAR, she’ll report live during the mornings and contribute to evening newscasts.

Steimle worked for two and a half years as a reporter, anchor and producer for KOMU in Columbia, Mo., before she came to WCAX. She is a native of Kalamazoo, Mich., and holds a bachelor’s degree in radio-TV journalism from the University of Missouri.
