Susan Reimer

Columnist

A native of Pittsburgh and a graduate of Ohio University, Susan was hired by The Sun in 1979 as one of the first full-time female sportswriters in the country. In 1993, The Sun asked Susan to write a column about her life as a wife and the working mother of school-aged children. More recently, she has moved to the editorial pages where her columns often cover national affairs. A collection of her columns is titled “Motherhood Is a Contact Sport.” She is married to Gary Mihoces, a sportswriter for USA Today, and is the mother of two adult children. She lives in Annapolis.
