Hey thanks for visiting my page!
I'm Sarah Plake, 13 News reporter and anchor.
I sometimes can't even believe this is what I'm doing for a living. I've reported on so many amazing, happy, heart-wrenching, devastating, fun and hard hitting news stories while at WIBW. I started in October 2012, and quickly began learning about the people of Topeka, thrown into the chaos when two of our police officers were killed in the line of duty.
I started a new journey as weekday morning co-anchor in January 2014. I got into the news business to be a reporter, so I will continue to report on Topeka's latest stories.
A little more about myself:
I'm proudly from Kansas City, Kansas from an amazing family, and a proud KU alumna. I love to cook and eat. Mexican food is my heart. My mom is Mexican and there's nothing like it. If there are two things most known around the newsroom, it's that I will eat literally anything and there is not a single animal I won't make friends with. Just ask my pet bearded dragon Bowser.
I hope you'll get to know me better every morning, so that you won't feel like I'm some unapproachable face on the screen. And I hope you trust me to tell your stories. That's my whole goal as a journalist.
Pleasesend me an email or say hey if you see me. I want to hear what you have to say!
