Kalae Chock - KHQ Local News Report
Kalae is excited to anchor The Wake Up Show, weekday mornings with Sean Owsley. She works to bring viewers news that happened overnight, along with the fun stories that people will surely be talking about in the day ahead. The most fulfilling aspect of her job is getting out of the studio and meeting people with stories to tell. She is constantly amazed by people’s tenacity, compassion, and stength. She learns something from everyone she meets and hopes her viewers do too.

Kalae has anchored Spokane news since 2005, and previously worked in Kalispell, Montana at KAJ-TV and in Missoula at the CBS affiliate KPAX. She graduated from Washington State University in 2002 from the Edward R. Murrow School of Communication. In the spring of 2014, she earned her Master's Degree in Communication and Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University. She also earned her first Emmy for 'Best Sports Feature".

Kalae is most proud of her family. She and her husband, Robby, met as college students at WSU. They welcomed their daughter, Leialoha, into the world in 2007, and their son, Kekoa, in 2010. Kalae looks forward to raising her children in Spokane, a community she loves.
