Host, The California Report Magazine

Sasha Khokha has hosted The California Report's  weekly magazine program since 2016, taking listeners on sound-rich excursions from exploring the Salton Sea in the the Eastern Coachella Valley to ziplining through the Northern CA redwoods. As The California Report's Central Valley Bureau Chief based in Fresno for nearly a dozen years, Sasha brought the lives and concerns of rural Californians to listeners around the state. Her reporting helped expose the hidden price immigrant women janitors and farmworkers may pay to keep their jobs: sexual assault at work — and helped change California law, twice.  She was a key member of the reporting team for the Frontline film Rape on the Night Shift, which was nominated for two national Emmys. Sasha has also won a national Edward R. Murrow and a national PRNDI award for investigative reporting, as well as multiple prizes from the Society for Professional Journalists. She began her radio career in waterproof overalls, filing stories about the salmon fishery at Raven Radio in Sitka, AK. She has produced and reported for several documentary films. Her film “Calcutta Calling," about children adopted from India to Swedish-Lutheran Minnesota, was nominated for a national Emmy Award.  Sasha is  a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and Brown University, and a member of the South Asian Journalists Association.
