Smita Kalokhe came from the west side of Michigan and joined the Action News Team in November 2010.
Prior to joining Channel 7, Smita worked for the WXMI in Grand Rapids, Michigan. There she served as a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor. Smita also spent a few years in Rockford, Illinois as a reporter and weekend anchor for WREX.
Over the years, she’s covered a range of stories from George W. Bush’s State of the Union address from the Capitol to the mass shooting at Northern Illinois University, but it’s the time Smita spends working within the community that she enjoys most. She’s thankful for a career that has allowed her opportunities to volunteer, speak and interact with people from many different places.
With a double major in economics and communications, Smita is a proud alumnus of the University of Michigan. She followed up her undergraduate studies with a Master of Science degree in Journalism at Northwestern University. During that time, Smita served as a Washington D.C.-based correspondent and also interned for Bloomberg TV in London, England.
In her spare time, Smita enjoys reading, traveling, camping and spending time with her husband.
