Sarah Komadina joined Global Edmonton in June of 2019 after working as the morning live reporter at Global Regina for two years. Before that, she worked at Global Lethbridge.
She began her career in northern B.C. as a video journalist after graduating from NAIT’s Radio and Television Arts program.
From there, she had the opportunity to work in Prince Albert, Sask., where she honed her skills, covering wildfires burning thousands of hectares in Northern Saskatchewan.
She also was in La Loche reporting on the aftermath of a school shooting that saw four dead and many injured.
Sarah loves telling feature stories highlighting people who are doing amazing things. She’s especially proud of a story she did about a young man with Down syndrome looking for work. Weeks later he was offered two jobs.
When she is not reporting, you’ll find her posting pictures of her photogenic and extremely adorable dog “Koda” to Instagram and ripping up the track, playing roller derby as “Funky Komadina.”
