The award-winning anchor has recently shared an update about her absence. Read on to find out what she had to say.
Sarah Forgany’s Education and Career
Sarah Forgany was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt, but she calls Texas her home. Forgany was passionate about journalism and telling stories from a young age. After spending most of her life in Houston, she earned a degree from the University of Houston.

Sarah Forgany Hospitalized During Vacation
In a Facebook post shared on March 11, Forgany revealed that she was taken to the ER in an Italian hospital and stayed there for a few days. The anchor has now returned to the U.S. to continue her treatment. Moreover, the reason behind her hospitalization has yet to be revealed.
“Unfortunately, I had to cut my vacation short & fly back to the U.S to be admitted to a hospital here. I’m Thankful for the Italian hospital & Doctors who got me through some dark days but I’m so glad I was able to return to the U.S. asap to continue my treatment here,” Forgany stated.
