Sarah Jones joined the KWQC TV6 News Team as a reporter in July 2018.

Sarah is excited to be back in the Midwest after working in newsrooms in London, Washington DC, Atlanta, New York and Istanbul.

Sarah's roots are in Chicago and she is one of the top twenty North American Young Leaders chosen by one of Europe's most influential think tanks - Friends of Europe. On International Women's Day 2018, Sarah received the Women Economic Forum's highest honor when she was named one of their "Women of the Decade" in News and Social Engagement. On more than one occasion she has been invited to advise senior level military planners and government officials - in the U.S. and allied countries - on social technologies.

Sarah also founded the international moment of silence and online event to help remember fallen journalists with co-partners like the Committee to Protect Journalists and the UN Foundation's Plus Social Good. The event reached over 9 million people in its first year and in-person events were held around the world.

Sarah completed her undergraduate degree at Lake Forest College outside of Chicago, and received her Masters with merit from City University in London.

She loves ATVs, hiking, water sports and is currently trying to learn how to skateboard.
