Susan Stamberg (born September 7, 1938) is an Americanmarker radio journalist who is currently a Special Correspondent for National Public Radio and guest host for Weekend Edition Saturday.

Stamberg was born in Newark, New Jerseymarker. She became the first woman to be a full-time anchor of a national nightly news broadcast in the United Statesmarker when she became one of the first hosts of All Things Considered. Beginning in 1972, Stamberg served as co-host of the evening news magazine for 14 years. She was awarded the Edward R. Murrow Award . In 1994, Stamberg was inducted into the Broadcasting Hall of Fame, and later into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1996.

Each Thanksgiving since 1971, Stamberg provides NPR listeners with her mother-in-law's recipe for a cranberry relish sauce that is unusual in having horseradish as one of its principal ingredients. The recipe is known as Mama Stamberg's Cranberry Relish Recipe.

One of her most memorable interviews was with Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman. Stamberg argued with Friedman over the merits of the free market, claiming her conversations with "Russian cabbies" on the streets of New York had showed that the expatriates preferred life in the former Communist country to "how dreadfully tough their lives are here (the United States)." Friedman dismissed Stamberg's observation, contending, "I'm saying if you really want to know what they really believe about the relative merits of the two systems, see what they do, not what they say. And what they do is to stay here. They don't go back."

Stamberg was married to Louis C. Stamberg, who died on October 9, 2007. During his career with the Agency for International Development he worked as a program officer and spent more than two years at the USAID mission in New Delhi. They have one son, Josh Stamberg, an actor.
