Sarah Delia

Arts Reporter

At this point in her life, Sarah considers home to be a state of mind—not one place. Before joining the WFAE news team, she was hosting and reporting in the deep south in Birmingham, Alabama. In past lives she was a northerner having worked and lived in Indiana, Maine, and New York City. She grew up in Virginia and attended James Madison University in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley.

Sarah got her start in radio at WXJM, her college radio station where she hosted a talk show, a music program, and helped manage the student run station. It’s also where she made lifelong friends and discovered a love for talking into microphones.

Sarah has interned and worked at NPR in Washington DC, interned and freelanced for WNYC, and attended the Salt Institute for Radio Documentary Studies.

She enjoys telling stories that are off the beaten path and she’s excited to dive into the arts and culture scene in Charlotte. In her spare time Sarah loves to paint, collect vintage birdcages, pick through old vinyl, spend time with her pets, and turn claw foot bathtubs into couches.

Last February a church in Davidson added a new member to its congregation—  a life size sculpture of a homeless man asleep on a bench. Look closer and that figure, face covered and wrapped in a blanket, is Jesus, noted by the holes in his feet.

The Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte has been around for over 24 years. And it’s now in the middle of the best selling show in its history, “The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical.”

An organization in Charlotte is trying to help the homeless in a different way. Speak Up Magazine is a group that gives people living on the streets not just a job, but a chance to tell their story.
