Hello South Florida. I would like to introduce myself.


My name is Irika Sargent and I am excited to be a part of the great news team here at CBS4. I’m delighted to say I now co-anchor our 5 pm and 11 pm weekday newscasts with Rick Folbaum.

I’m also proud to be a new member of this wonderful, vibrant and multi-cultured community. South Florida is one of the most dynamic and exciting news markets in the country and I look forward to tackling the challenges and opportunities this new role provides. I promise you I will do my best to live up to my responsibility to bring you, our valued viewers, the complete, reliable and informative newscast South Florida has come to expect. That’s a duty we never take lightly. We will always strive to live up to the trust you have placed in us.

So this is where I turn to you. I would like to hear what you consider to be the important issues in our community, the stories that you believe deserve attention and news coverage. I want to know about those topics that impact your life … your concerns, your thoughts, the ways we can serve you better.

I look forward to hearing from you. You can reach me via twitter, Facebook or through our website at I truly hope this will be the start of an ongoing dialogue that will help highlight the issues and concerns that affect all of us who call South Florida home.

All the very best,
