I'm delighted to join UTV and for the wonderful opportunity this programme gives me to look at what's happening across Northern Ireland.
While Sarah will host the show, she will also be joined each week by local celebrities and media personalities who will catch up with her as she gets 'out and about'.
"We're casting a wide net across life in Northern Ireland and I'm very interested to see what great variety and character is in our catch!" she added.
