About SABINA BHASIN
Some may call her behavior nomadic but Sabina likes to think she's just curious.
After spending no more than nine months in a city over the last three years, with her dog Fiona in tow, she finally lands in Naples, FL and joins the team as a Multimedia Journalist at the Naples Daily News.
From print, to radio, to television, to teaching, to online journalism, and now back to print, Sabina hopes to bring her inquisitive nature, experience and tenacity for truth, into your homes, offices or wherever else you cuddle up with the newest edition of Naples Daily News.
She has a thirst for New Media and is looking forward to quenching it through naplesnews.com. She also loves to tell a story - be it visually, or literally- if it makes an impact, teaches something new, or gets on a fridge, she is able to proudly look in the mirror each morning knowing she is fulfilling her purpose.
As a graduate of Indiana University, this adopted Hoosier loves the Colts; but as a Detroit girl at the core, nothing compares to the pride she has for Detroit sports - even if it's not their year.
Though she is still trying to peel herself off the beach and into an office desk, Sabina covers Lee County -- from the crime scenes to the court rooms to the commission building. You can also catch her on Thursday mornings on ABC-7 where she discusses upcoming weekend entertainment. Any ideas, stories, tips or just thoughts that need to be shared, send them to Sabina - she loves mail.
But, if you really want to get on her good side, send her some Nutella. That always works.
