Sarah Palin emails: Former boss remembers sportscaster Sarah Heath

Former KTUU-TV sports director, John Hernandez, had no idea his former intern was sitting governor of Alaska until a friend “connected the dots for me.”

He knew her as 24-year-old Sarah Heath, who made her sportscasting debut on Super Bowl Sunday in 1988.

“I remember a time WAY BACK WHEN when I took you under my wing,” Hernandez reminisces in an email to the Governor in August 2008. Hernandez added he would “welcome the opportunity to see you again some day and – at the very least – to talk with you on the phone soon.”


Palin, who was known to personally respond to constituent matters at times, responded with a form letter. “Thank you for writing to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin,” she wrote. “The concerns, opinions, and/or information you have sent are important and valuable to the Governor.”
