Hi, everyone! My name is Sabrina Fairchild and I will be your Midday host at the New Channel 9-5-7, each weekday, from 10a-3p.

 

I love living in West Michigan and have been around town since graduating from Hope College. My favs include talking with you every day, watching the sun set along Lake Michigan in the summer, spoiling my Cocker Spaniels, and writing.

 

Recently, I have had the great honor of being published! Faith and the S.T.O.P. Principle is my first book and can be used to facilitate a twelve-week Bible study.

 

Want to chat? Please E-mail me at sabrina.fairchild@townsquaremedia.com!

U2 Puts The Green Back Into Spartan Stadium!

Seeing U2 in concert is a chance of a lifetime and it comes with a lot of buzz including what not to bring and what happens after the show.

About 70,000 Michiganders flooded Spartan Stadium last night to hear the likes of Bono's smooth voice fill the air!  U2 was originally scheduled to perform last June before Bono had to have emergency back surgery.

West Michigan Beach Etiquette Pet Peeves!

I missed you while I was away for a week of vacation along the lovely Lake Michigan shoreline!

My sister and nephew have been in town to celebrate the first week of summer with me and we decided to go camping at P.J. Hoffmaster State Park in Muskegon.

We had such a blast and I personally want to thank the park rangers (Karen and up-and-coming ranger, Jake) for helping us put up our tent and for kindly advising us when to take shelter during a tornado watch

Saving Money Is Down Among Americans!

Saving money is never one of those things that make the top of a list of priorities, is it?  You may switch it around a bit once you hear the latest findings from www.financial-planning.com!

According to the financial website's findings, you and I average an annual savings rate at around 3.5% compared to nearly triple that amount in 1981.

Does Dad’s Day Get Less Attention Than Mother’s Day?

Don't forget that Father's Day is this Sunday!  Apparently some dad's are already feeling a little left out this year.

According to Sacramento Bee, 40% of men and nearly the same amount of women (36%) feel that this special occassion to honor our dad's doesn't quite get the attention it deserves!

I'm not sure if the following wish list has anything to do with it, but in the same survey, 41% of dads said that they'd like to get a new car on Father's Day and another 15% opted for a boat or yacht!

Thankfully, both my mom and dad are happy when I send a card and pick up the phone and call them on their respective special day!

Andy Grammer Keeps His Head Up In The Channel 957 Studio! [AUDIO, VIDEO & PHOTOS]

You often ask me if I love my job because of the artists I get to meet and all of the concerts I get to attend, and the answer is usually a 'yeah' or 'it depends on the artist!'   Well today, the answer is hands down (with heads high!) the former!

Up and coming artist, Andy Grammer, spent the afternoon in the studio before heading to the House of Blues for a concert in Chicago tonight!   First of all, he is adorable, 27 and single -- for any of you who are looking for Mr. Right!  Second, Andy seems to have his act together and not only knows how to work hard, but he does it with passion and a positive attitude!

Smell Like You’re Grillin’ Out With Bar-B-Que Cologne!!

There's something that happens inside of me when I'm out walking my dogs and I get a whiff of someone's steak grilling or smell a bonfire and hear it crackling!  I love it and thoughts of family reunions and plans for the Fourth-Of-July start racing through my mind.   But, has it ever crossed your mind that you'd kind of like to smell like a bar-b-que?? Me neither!
