Sasha Khokha

Sasha Khokha is the host of KQED's statewide program The California Report, bringing listeners on sound-rich audio excursions around the Golden State.

As The California Report's Central Valley Bureau Chief for a dozen years, Sasha covered the nation's richest farm belt,and some of California's poorest towns. She reported from the smoggiest air basin in the US and from one of its most pristine treasures: Yosemite National Park. Sasha's reporting also helped expose the hidden price immigrant women janitors and farmworkers sometimes pay to keep their jobs: sexual assault at work - and helped change California law, twice. She has produced and reported several documentary films, including Hunger in the Valley of Plenty and Calcutta Calling.
