Morning Anchor

School: Purdue University
Hometown: Brownsburg, Indiana

Sarah Blakely is a TV6 Morning News co-anchor. She rejoined the TV6 team in May 2018.

Sarah was born and raised in Brownsburg, Indiana. She earned her Bachelor of Arts from Purdue University in 2012 where she reported and anchored the student-run news magazine, Fast Track.

Sarah began her news career at TV6 as the Houghton-Hancock bureau reporter from Dec. 2012 through Dec. 2014. Despite enduring two Copper Country winters, she fell in love with the U.P. and visited often after she moved away.

By February 2015, Sarah anchored the KDLT Morning News in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, which received an Upper Midwest Regional Emmy nomination in 2016. One of her most memorable interviews, she says, was with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS. Sarah left Sioux Falls in early 2017 for Little Rock, Arkansas, where she anchored and produced newscasts that broadcast in Jonesboro, Arkansas, Jackson, Tennessee, and Lafayette, Indiana.

Sarah returned to the Upper Peninsula because she says it truly is Someplace Special that feels like home! She enjoys the outdoors, playing with her dog, Beesly, and cheering on the Indianapolis Colts.
