Sarah Menendez

Assistant producer, digital

SHORT BIO

I've done all things digital at Marketplace. Currently, I'm working on special projects and helping us build collaborative workflows across the organization.

What advice do you wish someone had given you before you started this career?

It's OK if you don't want to be a reporter — there are a lot of different jobs behind the scenes that make the newsroom run.

In your next life, what would your career be?

Event planner. I love planning parties, and I spend way too much time watching wedding videos on YouTube.

Fill in the blank: Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you ______.

… out of student debt.

What’s your most memorable Marketplace moment?

When LeVar Burton came to the studio for an interview, I totally freaked out. I word-vomited something about “Reading Rainbow” and how much he means to my mom as a teacher. He was so kind and told me to make sure I thank my mom for her work.
