Sabrina Halvorson

Digital Director/Farm Broadcaster

With a background in news, Sabrina (Hill) Halvorson is a well-known broadcaster, journalist, and radio personality from California. She turned her focus to agriculture news in 2012 and quickly became known for her fair and accurate reporting on the farm sector.

Sabrina’s career began more than two decades ago as the agriculture and education reporter for a daily Central California newspaper. She was soon brought on as a news producer and reporter for an all-news radio station in Fresno, California.

Since that time, Sabrina’s professional journalism career expanded into television. She hosted a local television show and was an award-winning news producer for the area’s CBS affiliate. In addition to receiving a Best Newscast award from the Radio and Television News Directors Association, Sabrina has been published in newspapers, magazines, and college textbooks. She was also popular in Central California country music radio, as she co-hosted the best-rated afternoon show in the market with a loyal listenership spanning several counties with a significant online presence.

Despite her California upbringing, Sabrina has deep roots in the Dakotas. Her paternal grandfather’s family, the Wilcox’s, were cattle ranchers in Huron and Faith, South Dakota, until the mid 1900’s, with another family offshoot in Buffalo, North Dakota. She is looking forward to spending more time where her family made its home.
