I am thrilled to be back home after more than a decade away!
I grew up in east Dallas, then moved to the Park Cities where I graduated from high school. I caught the "journalism bug" when I was 16 and interned for The Dallas Morning News. I knew I wanted to pursue television news while running our high school's cable news program. After high school, I studied Broadcast Journalism at the University of Missouri where I studied abroad in London and interned for CNN International.
Three days after graduating, I moved to Omaha, Nebraska to work as a reporter and anchor for the Fox affiliate. While there, I created and anchored my own show, and had the opportunity to interview the world's two wealthiest men, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett together.
In 2007, I moved to Las Vegas to work as a reporter for KLAS, the CBS-affiliate. I covered gaming, tourism, crime, court, budget cuts, and many of the city's colorful characters. In addition, I anchored news, weather, traffic, sports, and was part of the investigative team that won a national George Foster Peabody Award for our two-week series on the Las Vegas foreclosure crisis. While there, I was also nominated for three regional Emmy awards.
And yes, Calvert IS my real name… I was actually named after my grandmother, so there are two of us in the world with the same name! I am a die-hard football fan and enjoy traveling, trying new restaurants and spending time with my husband and young daughter.
