Sarah Merrifield joined CBS Austin in July 2016 as a Sports Reporter/Anchor.
Born and raised in San Diego CA, Sarah attended Syracuse University where she majored in Broadcast Journalism at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communication. No surprise, Upstate New York was a little too cold for the SoCal girl. Her first job out of college, Sarah landed in Abilene, TX – a dramatic contrast.
While football is the biggest presence in Sarah’s on air experience, she also enjoys watching baseball (specifically the Rangers and Padres) or college lacrosse (go ‘Cuse!).
The oldest of three, Sarah enjoys traveling with family and spending time outside. If she’s not at a UT football game or on the road with the Longhorns' teams, you can catch Sarah on runs with her dog, trying out new restaurants or exploring the trails and parks of Austin. She is excited to call Austin her new home.
