Capital Emcee

 Specializing in emceeing, auctioneering, commercials and voice-over work

As a former television news anchor and reporter for more than five years, being in front of a crowd or camera is second nature to me. During my time in the television news industry I've won an Emmy and Golden mic award and hosted/emceed more than 40 events across the United States.  Currently serving as full-time professional mistress of ceremonies and licensed auctioneer, I've been able to help numerous organizations host events and raise thousands of dollars for various causes including childhood cancer, mental health awareness, disaster relief and educational programs.

What sets me apart is my passion for the causes I'm helping, my attention to detail and time management of event programs. 


Whether it’s in-person, virtual or pre-recorded, I will take your event, fundraiser or corporate video to the next level. Be sure to read the testimonials from the various groups I've worked with in the past to get a sense for what it's like to work with me!


My Services


Emceeing and Auctioneering

The energy and flow of the crowd in attendance is in the hands of an emcee. I credit my live TV news experience with helping me become a dynamic and commanding emcee being able to handle last minute and unexpected changes to a program on the fly. As a licensed auctioneer, my focus is to capture the heart beat of an organization's mission and turn it into top dollars raised. Let's achieve your fundraising goals together!


Voice Over

It takes years to develop a "voice" for promotional or recorded material and to know which tone to apply to each. I provide professional recorded audio from the comfort of my home-recording studio. The average turn around time for voice-over work is 3-days.  Be sure to check out the voice over examples I have posted on this website!


Commercials/Corporate Videos

I come with more than a decade of on-camera experience where I confidently provide a polished product. Whether it's a corporate video explaining a concept or a general video to feature on your website, hosting an event virtually, or shooting a commercial, I can have it delivered within a week's time.

Nadia Abourizk-Asaad, Executive Director of the Rene Moawad Foundation

"The Rene Moawad Foundation was thrilled to have Mrs. Sara Shouhayib as the Host of its first Annual Legacy Pillar Virtual event. Ms. Shouhyaib, elevated our event to a level of professionalism that we had been seeking. Her knowledge of the region and Lebanon in particular, added a dimension of connectivity, compassion and sympathy for our cause and the issues we were promoting that would have otherwise been absent. Her comfort in front of the camera and articulate public speaking abilities commanded attention. Her transitions from one segment to the next were done very smoothly and concisely. As a Host/Emcee she was able to give us a seamless product that connected many moving parts into a unified cohesive program whose impact resonated with our audience. We are grateful to have had Sara as our Host in the launch of this annual event and look forward to her hosting or emceeing our live in person galas."
