Award-winning journalist Susan Cingari has over twenty years of experience in newspaper, radio, and television broadcasting. Since 1991, Susan has worked as a freelance writer, reporter, host, and producer for hundreds of national news, sports, and magazine shows including ET, The Insider, Extra, ESPN, FOX News/Sports, CNN, Discovery, CBS, America’s Most Wanted, and Disney, as well as dozens of digital media outlets.
Susan has reported on a variety of sporting events and teams including the Miami Heat, Miami Dolphins, the Daytona 500, NASCAR Races at the Homestead Miami Speedway, two World Series, and five Super Bowls. She has interviewed dozens of household names, such as, Dwayne Johnson, Serena Williams, Michael Jordan, Tim Hardaway, Hulk Hogan, Goose Gossage, Mike Piazza, Shaq, Roger Penske, Anna Kournikova, Andy Roddick, Jeff Gordon, and Oscar De La Hoya.
Her passion for Mixed Martial Arts started by accident. When an Olympic wrestler canceled an interview, strength and conditioning coach, JC Santana of The Institute of Human Performance in Boca Raton, Florida, suggested doing a story on up-and-coming MMA fighter Micah Miller - brother of UFC fighter Cole Miller. One step inside American Top Team’s training facility in Coconut Creek was all it took for Susan to be hooked.
Since then, she has interviewed numerous figures in the world of Mixed Martial Arts including Dana White, Chael Sonnen, Scott Coker, Ken Shamrock, Din Thomas, Art Davie, Frank Mir, Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz, Carlos Condit, Demetrious Johnson, Vitor Belfort, Dhiego Lima, Brad Pickett, Haim Gozali, Roxanne Modafferi, Tonya Evinger, Andrei Arlovski, Anthony Johnson, Greg Hardy, Eddie Gordon, Daniel Weichel, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, and more.
Susan also reports on the resurgent sport of bare-knuckle boxing and has interviewed a number of boxers including Antonio Tarver, David Feldman, Paulie Malignaggi, Reggie Barnett, Ana Julaton, Howard Davis Jr., Angelo Dundee, Artem Lobov, Arnold Adams, Bec Rawlings, Christine Ferea, Chris Leben, Chris Lytle, and Joey Beltran.
While not a martial artist herself, Susan is passionate about the sport and is sure that she’ll be reincarnated as a champion. Until then, she continues her quest to dominate in the octagon of combat sports reporting.
