Personal Life

Based on Max Shifrin’s mini biography on LinkedIn, he is a holder of a B.A. in History and Political Science. Max obtained the B.A from the University of Connecticut in 2005. Later on, he attended Brooklyn Law School and earned a J.D in 2010. During his time at the law school, Max served for almost a year at the U.S. Attorney’s Office. However, his service then was only as a Student Prosecutor.

According to Sara’s remarks, she and Shifrin met via an online dating platform named OKCupid. Taking advantage of the free online dating site, Sara created a profile with his brother’s help which appealed to Shifrin as he sent her a fascinating message. Max asked Sara for a date, but she cancelled it. However, they met later on and had drinks together. Coincidentally, Max had the chance to met Sara’s brother the very same night since he had taken his girlfriend for a date at the same joint.

While on-set on any show, Max’s wife, Sara, has a peppy jiggle that goes a long way in creating a connection with her audience across America. This is fruitful since most American viewers like to view happy faces on their screen. However, this personality, according to Haines, annoys Max to some extent.

Apart from Alec, Max’s and Sara’s son, the couple has not had any other children to date. Alec’s birth brought about much excitement and joy to the couple. At the time of her pregnancy, Sara revealed to a fellow anchor named Amy Robach about her state who unexpectedly asked her to share the news widely, especially on her morning shows. As a result, Max’s wife became on over-sharer including sharing on Periscope about her successful delivery.
