Sarah Arbogast joined the KDKA team in 2011. The North Versailles native is thrilled and honored to be delivering the news in her hometown.

After graduating from California University of PA, Sarah landed her first reporting job in Beckley, West Virginia. After spending some time in the Mountain State, she moved on to report at WJET in Erie. Two years later, Sarah traveled across the state and spent three years covering news in Harrisburg, York and Lancaster for WPMT.

Sarah has covered everything from crime to politics. Two of her most memorable stories are the Sago Mine Disaster in 2006 and the Supreme Court case involving military father, Albert Snyder. In 2016, Sarah was honored with a Golden Quill for her reporting on Life Changing Service Dogs for Veterans, an organization providing medical service dogs to veterans who suffer from physical disabilities or cognitive challenges from Traumatic Brain Injuries and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Outside of work, Sarah enjoys spending time with friends and family. Sarah and her husband have two children, Delaney and Jameson, and a dog named Charlie.
