Sarah Acosta joined the KSAT12 News team in April 2018 as a morning reporter for Good Morning San Antonio.
She is a native South Texan girl, hailing from Corpus Christi.
She came to San Antonio from Sacramento, Calif., where she covered snow, flooding and forest fires as a breaking news and morning reporter for FOX40.
Sarah is so happy to return to South Texas and feels right at home in San Antonio. (It doesn't hurt that she is also so close to her family in Corpus Christi).
After graduating from Southern Methodist University in Dallas in 2010 with a bachelor's degree in Convergence Journalism, she started her career as a newspaper reporter for the Corpus Christi Caller Times. She covered local and entertainment news on a multi-media platform, creating her own position and brand for a niche on local happenings. Her Caller-Entertainment video segments and blog landed her a spots on Clear Channels C101 Rocks and KIII-3News weekly.
In 2013 she started working as a morning reporter for KIII-3News until 2016, when she took her morning reporter position in Sacramento.
She spent most of her high school career as an athlete, competing in tennis, cross country and track. She fell in love with journalism as the yearbook's editor in chief. After graduating from King High School in 2006, she played tennis on the SMU Women's Tennis team. She also found time in college to be part of the Chi-Omega sorority. Her internships during and after college include the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, the Dallas Morning News, NBC-DFW and the Texas Tribune.
She considers herself a "retired" tennis player, but will still pick up a racket every now and then and occasionally amuses herself by attempting half-marathons and other races.
Sarah is a big-time animal lover, giving all of her love and devotion to her rescue dog, Scooby. Scooby is a certified therapy dog through Go Teams Crisis and Airport Therapy Dogs. She hopes to continue her therapy dog volunteer work in San Antonio.
She has already fallen in love with Fiesta festivities and can't wait to celebrate again in the future.
