Sara Lim

Sara Lim joined the WTVM News Leader 9 as a Multimedia Journalist a week after graduating in May, 2013. She's excited to live in Columbus, and to call this welcoming city her new home.

A South Korea native, Sara moved to Atlanta, Ga. in 1997. Her interest in news began when she was just seven-years-old. She would take pictures with an old Kodak camera, and write stories for her own newspapers that she shared with her neighbors.

In May 2013, Sara graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Digital and Broadcast Journalism. While attending UGA, Sara took on multiple internships to enhance her skills as a journalist.

Sara's first internship took place during the Summer of 2010, when she shadowed the Brook Baldwin Show's team at CNN. For the first time, she learned how to write for news, and how to work under deadline pressure. Sara originally wanted to be a producer, until she met Brook Baldwin. The experience changed her life as she decided to give the on-camera position a chance.

In Fall 2012, Sara interned at WSB-TV in Atlanta, Ga. She shadowed reporters and worked as the assignment editor every week. She learned the importance of checking facts for every story and reporting under pressure.

The same year, Sara anchored, reported and produced for Grady Newsource Channel 15, Northeast Georgia's only newscast for daily news. On Election night, Sara reported live for several hours at the Georgia Theatre in Athens for Grady Newsource Channel 15. She also reported on crime and court stories in the area.

In Summer 2012, Sara interned at WRDW in Augusta, Georgia. She followed reporters into the field every week. The experience solidified Sara's decision to become a storyteller. Sara shadowed the station's morning crew for few weeks, and fell in love with the morning shows. She also shot, wrote and edited her own stories, helped with interviews, and assisted with research for other reporters' stories.

In her free time, Sara loves watching movies, jogging, traveling and cheering on the Dawgs. Sara would love to hear from you! Email story ideas to Sara at slim@wtvm.com, or find her on Facebook and Twitter.
