Susan Soltero

Susan Soltero is an Emmy Award Winning Meteorologist for Univision Puerto Rico.  She is currently the morning weather anchor and hosts a noon environmental segment called “ Susan en su Ambiente”  or “ “Susan in her Environment” and has become well known for her science and environmental reporting.  She is the chief meteorologist at Boricua 740am where she is in charge of at least seven daily weather updates and special reports.  She also hosts a one hour radio program which runs daily from 3-4pm AST on WALO 1240am in Humacao and can be heard on  called “ A Ciencia Cierta”  or “ True Science”.  She has won numerous awards and recognitions from the state legislature for her work with the environment.  She has also written several books and is working on a third.  Her book about the Manatees in Puerto Rico was the first book written about manatees in Puerto Rico and is a big hit in schools.  Highlights of her career include swimming with manatees, flying into the eye of hurricane Georges before in made landfall in Puerto Rico with the hurricane hunters (two engines died in that run-quite and adventure), following humpback whales in Dominican Republic and sky diving from an altitude of four miles (a high altitude dive which earned her the Emmy Award).  She is the mother of another young adventurer who is currently learning to fly.  She was born and raised in Puerto Rico and hopes to leave a legacy of animal protection and environmental protection on the island.  During the WAS*IS seminar she hopes to gain a lot of insight she can share with her viewers and listeners and will be transmitting live from 3-4pm every day.
