After a while, she joined WPGA station in Macon, Georgia, where between 2001 and 2003 she worked as a Sports Director. Gradually Sara was becoming more popular, resulting in new offers from several TV stations. As a result, she joined WKRN headquartered in Nashville, where she remained until 2006, during which she won four regional Emmy awards.

However, it was in 2010 that she struck the deal of her career, when she was offered a spot at ESPN in its “SportsCenter” show. In addition, Sara worked on several other shows, such as “SportsNation”, “NFL Live”, “Fantasy Football Now”, and “First Take” amongst others, all of which contributed to her wealth.

Despite this, she had already become a star, and it was quite easy for her to land a new job, being recruited by Fox Sports as the new reporter for the 2018-2019 NFL season.
