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.
