LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Coming from a life on the east coast, Sarah Horbacewicz joined the THV11 family in August 2021 as a multimedia journalist and weekend evening anchor.
Most recently, Sarah worked her second Olympic Games with NBC News where she helped produce coverage of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to local stations nationwide.
Prior to The Games, Sarah comes from WENY News in Elmira, New York where she served as a multimedia journalist, weekend anchor, producer, and digital news host.
While there she won multiple state awards for her reporting which included pandemic response in NY, the 2020 presidential election, and Black Lives Matter protests. While she’ll miss the empire state, she’s excited to explore the natural state and escape the snow (for the most part).
Sarah first discovered her love of storytelling in elementary school as a Kid Reporter for TIME for Kids Magazine when she interviewed Justin Bieber.
She continued her journalistic passion through college, studying Television-Radio on a full merit scholarship to the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College. As a Park Scholar, Sarah built her foundations in connecting community service and communications.
While in school, Sarah held multiple internships with CBS News, where she found her seemingly opposing loves for feature stories and politics. During her time with CBS, Sarah helped produce Steve Hartman’s ‘On the Road’ segments that demonstrated stories of kindness across the country.
She also worked on Capitol Hill to assist in covering the 2018 midterm elections, as well as the confirmation hearings of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Continuing in the political sphere, Sarah worked as a runner with CNN during the 2020 Iowa Caucuses.
One of Sarah’s all time favorite job opportunities was spending time in Pyeongchang, South Korea to help cover the 2018 Olympic Games with NBC Sports (a past figure skater herself, in her free time she would sneak over to watch as many skating events as possible)!
