“It’s been good to keep that focus.”

Despite such hardships, Sarah’s recently announced position at The Project could be a fresh start.

“I did not see this coming,” Sarah revealed to Stellar.

“And I’m still trying to wrap my head around it. It’s such an incredible opportunity to step into some pretty huge shoes and be part of The Project’s next chapter.

“I can’t wait to learn more, and have some fun with Waleed and the team. This is one of the biggest jobs in TV, and feels like a once-in-a-lifetime gig.”

However, in accepting the new job Sarah steps away from her position at Studio 10 where she hosted for 13 years. Sarah said the program will always feel like “family.”

“It’s tinged with a bit of sadness. Because I now step away from a show that’s been my baby for the better part of a decade,” she said.

“But the little show that could is still humming along and has some big plans for 2023, as well. And we’ll always be family.”
