Sara Goldenberg

An Ohio University graduate, Sara Goldenberg is excited to return to Ohio, which she considers her second home. Sara grew up outside of Philadelphia and spent the last several years living out West. She comes to us from KNXV in Phoenix, Arizona where she covered the heartbreaking story of the “Yarnell 19.” The wildland firefighters died battling a fire outside of Prescott, Arizona. Sara has also dedicated herself to covering veterans' issues. Her aggressive coverage of mismanagement and delayed care at the Phoenix VA led eight U.S. Congress members to call for a new investigation into the hospital in early 2015. Several whistleblowers came forward to Sara to share their stories, alleging mishandling of suicides at the VA. The President visited the hospital just weeks later, announcing a new plan for reform. While reporting in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Sara covered the devastating tornado that ripped through Joplin, Missouri. She was one of the first reporters on the scene just hours after it hit, and will always remember the incredible stories of resilience and recovery she reported on in the aftermath. Sara also won a Heartland Emmy award for her contribution to a news special on fighting teen bullying while working at KJRH. Sara got her start at KJCT in Grand Junction, Colorado. She graduated from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism where she majored in Broadcast News and studied abroad in southern France for a semester. Sara is looking forward to exploring Cleveland and Northeast Ohio with her husband Jim. She can't wait to bike and run on the Metro Parks trails and enjoy football games in the fall.
