Sarah Hill is an nine time Emmy award winning reporter and interactive anchor at KOMU-TV 8, the broadcast lab for the University of Missouri School of Journalism. She also serves as adjunct faculty for the J School

Sarah started her career in radio in the early 90's, covering the city beat in Springfield, MO. She came to KOMU in 2000. Here, she reports a weekly feature franchise called "Sarah's Stories", anchors U_News @ 4 #sarahhill , and helps students hone their storytelling skills. Sarah was the first journalist to use a Google Plus Hangout in a television newscast and continues to host her 4pm newscast with a live, 10- seat worldwide cyber couch. She also produces a weekly segment called "Your View", which seeks to educate viewers about decision making in local news.
Sarah has a 1993 Bachelor of Journalism degree from the Missouri School of Journalism. In addition, she's won numerous awards including a 2009 National Edward R. Murrow Award, a 2008 National Sigma Delta Chi, nine Emmys from the Mid-America Chapter of the National Association of Television Arts and Sciences and nine regional Edward R. Murrow awards. Sarah's reporting has taken her around the world. She's covered the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami in Sri Lanka and Indonesia and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana. In 2007, Sarah traveled to Vietnam for a documentary, "Mercy in Motion." Most recently, she traveled to Central America for "The Culture that Crawls," a documentary in Guatemala about people who have to crawl on the ground because they have no other source of mobility.
Sarah is married with two children, three if you count her husband. She enjoys running, collecting African art and practical jokes...not necessarily in that order. Most recently, Sarah helped start an organization called Central MO Honor Flight, which flies terminally-ill and aging WWII veterans at no cost to them to see

Great interview +Sarah Hill! I wonder how do you verify the news you receive from the people on the Hangout, especially since you're getting them live while you broadcast?
 
sorry for my delayed response +Yifat Cohen . Great question. Before anyone shares...we always talk about what they'll be talking about. So for instance if that's about a riot in India.... I'm able to also look at our wire service or online just to make sure our bases are covered. If they are sharing from an online source, I will ask them to post in the chat window where they got that information so it can be attributed and vetted. It's not a perfect system....and I'm just one person without a producer in the Hangout so it's a work in progress. Sometimes the news needs no verification as people like to share about engagements, pregnancies, birthdays, etc. That's the best news ever! :)
