The Familiar Faces

Ethan & Sara Forhetz

You recognize these two, right? Ethan and Sara Forhetz are on television, in front of a huge southwest Missouri audience, every day. Ethan is the evening anchor at KY3, and Sara is a reporter for the same station. This couple doesn’t have any of the working-together, living-together doldrums, though. Their jobs don’t intersect too much. Sara works the first half of the day while Ethan holds down the fort at home, and then they switch places, with just a few hours of afternoon overlap.

It’s not just bringing the news to 417-landers that makes this couple influential. They also give their time to causes that are near and dear to them, especially the Alzheimer’s Foundation. Ethan’s mother suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease for 20 years and passed away last March. Both Sara and Ethan are also on the board for the March of Dimes and emcee the organization’s annual Signature Chefs fundraising event. Sara recently rode in her first MS 150, raising money for multiple sclerosis research; her mother suffers from the condition, so she’s passionate about supporting the cause and plans to keep running in future MS 150s.

The two self-defined “news junkies” met when Ethan moved to Springfield to take a job at KY3, where Sara had been working for six months. It was a shared passion for the current events and an immediate connection that brought these two together, and they were married less than a year after they met. Today, they have a sweet 18-month-old daughter named Caroline.
