    Good luck to Ms. Barnett! Hopefully, she will offer even more personality to what the show already presents on CBS.

    I still am wondering why they didn’t choose a New York female anchor….maybe someone from WCBS-DT.

  3. Wow, she pregnant again.

  4. Susan Barnett will do an outstanding job as guest co-host on THE TALK. It is good to have a local personality that is from the Phila area be on the CBS Network Program. Over the past few years she has become a very well respected anchor in Philadelphia.
