Email Sarah

Hometown: Twin Cities, MN

College: University of Minnesota

Other Journalism Experience: I started at WBAY in Green Bay, and became a news director at WSAW in Wausau before landing in Madison.

Started at News 3 Now on: January 2020

What is your favorite part about living in Madison? The food! I’m getting to know the city one restaurant at a time. I haven’t had a bad meal yet!

What is the biggest news story that you’ve covered? It’s hard to top the Coronavirus. In my career, I haven’t seen another story that has so fully changed people’s lives. There doesn’t seem to be any piece of our community that’s untouched. But in the tough times, we see the great in people. The best part of my job is being able to highlight the people who see the difficult, and respond with grace and love.

What do you like to do in your spare time? I’ve always loved to read. I can spend all day on a good book.

What is your favorite kind of ice cream? I’ll eat anything but mint chip. I know I’m in the minority—but mint and chocolate just should not go together.

What is your favorite place to vacation? Any place with great food and wine. A beach doesn’t hurt either.

What was your favorite band when you were in high school? Snow Patrol. (It still is!)

What is your favorite sport to play or watch? I grew up in Minnesota, but I have ALWAYS been a Green Bay Packer fan. I won’t miss a game.

What are you really bad at that you’d love to be great at? I’m a great baker, but a terrible cook. There’s a logic to baking that I understand, but cooking takes an intuition that I just don’t seem to have.
