Story
Introduction

Sarah French is an Emmy award winning anchor/reporter for 7News in Boston, Ma.  She's covered everything from the Olympic Games in Beijing to the destructive aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

After the murder of her dear friend and colleague, Alice Morrin, Sarah became an advocate for domestic violence victims. Sarah worked with Connecticut legislators, trying to pass a 911 texting bill in Alice's name.  Sarah now works closely with Boston’s Elizabeth Stone House.

In 2010, Sarah was awarded the “Excellence in Local Television Award" by the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association for an hour-long special called “Gay in America: Tensions & Tolerance." The special focused on several teens who committed suicide after being bullied.

Sarah is very involved with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Susan G. Komen Foundation. She also loves to visit schools, speaking to kids about achieving their goals and dreams.

Prior to working with 7NEWS, Sarah was the morning anchor at WTIC-TV in Hartford, Conn.

Sarah is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism. She was Miss Missouri 2006.
