Suzy leapt from radio announcing into television as presenter of TV3’s Early Bird Show, quickly claiming her place as one of New Zealand’s most beloved children’s presenters. Thanks to the success of Suzy’s World and pre-school favourite You and Me, her television CV now runs to well over 2300 episodes.
In 1999, she set up her own company, Treehut Productions. Cato has written many children’s books and hosts the Amazing Me videos, which have been used in schools and pre-schools to teach life skills. In 2001, she was co-host of magazine-style show Family Confidential which offered advice and information for parents. Last year she won Best Children’s Programme at the New Zealand Radio awards.
