Sara Simnitch joined WNEM TV-5 in April of 2015.
Before making the move to the Wake-Up desk, Sara served as a freelance reporter for TV-5.
Sara graduated from Madonna University in Livonia, Michigan in 2011 with a major in Broadcast and Cinema Arts and played on the Women's golf team for the Crusaders.
While in college, Sara anchored Madonna's "Campus-Close-up". Sara was chosen in 2010 by mtvU and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as one of the top 10 student-journalists in the country in a contest to report on the red carpet for the Oscars.
Sara comes to WNEM from just a couple of hours north -- she spent nearly 4 years at 9&10/Fox 32 News in northern Michigan.
During her time there, Sara served in multiple roles from General Assignment Reporter to Evening Anchor & most recently as a co-Anchor of northern Michigan's favorite morning show, "Michigan this Morning".
While in northern Michigan, Sara received two Michigan Associated Press Awards & a Michigan Association of Broadcasters Excellence award.
Sara and her Husband are both originally from the Flint-area and she is excited to be back at home -- having coffee and waking up with the community she knows so well.
She anchors Wakeup at 4:30 am to 7 am, and the 9 am news here on TV5.
