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.

3 Ex-Bachelorette Bachelors Join ‘Bachelor Pad!’

A new reality show begins tonight called, Bachelor Pad, on ABC.  I honestly didn't give it a second thought until I found out that three of the guys who were sent home by The Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert, will be on the show.

Well, a friend of mine just sent me a forwarded e-mail that makes a whole lot of sense, and could save you and I from ever getting into a real jam, if in fact someone is truly pursuing you or me.
