Award-winning TV Journalist Sarah Wallace spoke with students about the highlights and challenges of her long career when she visited Dominican University. During “An Evening with Sarah Wallace” on April 20, 2023, Wallace also answered many questions from engaged students.
After 30 years at WABC-NY News, Wallace said she moved to WNBC-NY to join an expanding investigative unit. “That has always been my passion,“ she said. “I love breaking news. I love doing live reporting. But it’s the stories where I think that we can make a difference that are the ones that resonate for me.”
Criminal Justice Instructor Hilda Kogut, a former FBI agent, arranged for Sarah Wallace to come to campus, sat on stage with her, and asked her questions during the forum in the Lawrence Room of Rosary Hall. Wallace said her specialty is covering the stories of those who are wrongfully convicted.
Wallace has more than 30 years of experience as a TV journalist. In addition to earning 19 Emmy Awards for journalistic excellence, Wallace has been recognized with the prestigious George Foster Peabody award, two Edward R. Murrow Awards, and three Robert Greene Awards for Investigative Journalism from the Long Island Fair Media Council.
