Sarah Kraus came home to join Global Edmonton late in 2015. Since graduating from St. Francis Xavier high school, she has travelled Canada extensively and lived in five different provinces.
First, she moved to Halifax to attend the University of King’s College and earn a Double Major in Journalism and Environmental Sustainability.
She got her start in the industry as an intern at Global Edmonton back in 2012 and worked her way up the ladder behind the scenes, before deciding she wanted to get out in the community and share people’s stories. Kraus left to pursue reporting and ended up moving north to CJDC in Dawson Creek, BC, where she juggled reporting, anchoring sports, and providing weather forecasts. Then, it was back to Alberta, this time a little further south, as a reporter at CHAT News in Medicine Hat. Her last stop was in Saskatchewan where she reported at Global Regina. During her time in Saskatchewan’s capital, Kraus covered major events including the 2015 federal election and the Northern Saskatchewan wildfires and brought viewers the emotional story of a rural farm family battling transgender stereotypes.
When she’s not interviewing news-makers, Kraus can be found volunteering with dogs in need, working out at the gym, or sitting in the nosebleeds cheering for the Edmonton Oilers.
