Sarah Yoro developed a love for broadcast journalism as a child, watching NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw. “From then, I knew I wanted to be a part of the industry,” she said.
The Mililani High School and Azusa Pacific University graduate cut her teeth as an intern with British Broadcasting Corp. in Washington, D.C.
Yoro started in the digital department at KHON2 before becoming a reporter in 2014. She says some of the many perks of the job include “the thrill of breaking news and meeting new people every day.”
An experience Yoro says she will never forget is following Maui crews and volunteers as they searched for Moreira Monsalve, a missing mother of three. “I was blown away by how the community came together during the family’s time of need,” she said.
Yoro is an avid hiker and loves Lanikai Pillboxes for its breathtaking view.
She also enjoys trying new restaurants, although her go-to dining spot is Sorabol on Keeaumoku St.
