My name is Bhavisha, but most people call me “B” because my name is too difficult to pronounce.

I was born and raised in Northern California in a small town where the only fun thing to do was go to Target on a Friday night.

I always knew I wanted to work in TV news — I was the kid who sat on the playground reading a newspaper and asked my parents if I could stay up late, not to watch a scary movie but to watch the 10 p.m. news.

Aside from working brutal morning show hours, I also volunteer for a non-profit journalism organization where I help put on conferences for hundreds of journalism students. I also love sports, roller coasters, buffalo wings and high heels.

    Bill Belichick’s epic rant against NFL tablets: ‘I’m done’

    San Francisco — Bill Belichick is done with newfangled technology. The notoriously curt New England Patriots head coach expounded on his distaste for Surface Tablets on Tuesday. The NFL supplies teams with Microsoft tablet computers as part of a long-term partnership that began in 2013. But new grandpa Belichick will be using paper, thank you very much. He said he’s ditched the NFL-supplied hardware in favor of old school techniques. During a press conference Tuesday, Belichick talked for more than five […]

Kaepernick says he’s doing it to raise awareness about the country’s racial injustices. Lynch said “I’d rather see him take a knee than stand up, put his hands […]
