Farewell to WEAU's Sarah Stokes!

After 8 years of anchoring the evening news at WEAU 13 News, Sarah Stokes is leaving to take care of her children and start a new chapter.

Sarah has co-anchored WEAU 13 News at 6 and 10 with her husband, WEAU's Chris Herzog and WEAU 13 News at 5 with Judy Clark. Chris and Sarah came to Eau Claire fresh off their honeymoon in 2005 and have made many memories through the years.

While at WEAU, Sarah has anchored the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts. She also anchored our news partner's Fox 25/48 News at 9 newscast and produced and hosted Wisconsin Journal on the weekends.

Sarah took on many fundraising projects, coordinated our election night coverage and spent hours giving back to the community while at WEAU. As viewers noticed over the years she coordinated countless coordinating ties with Chris as well!

She and Chris have a 2-year-old son and a 1-year-old daughter and made the decision for their family that Sarah would leave WEAU to take care of them. Sarah says she'll start her own business as well and plans to work from their home in Eau Claire. Chris Herzog will continue to anchor WEAU 13 News at 6 and 10.
