Kavita Channe is back, at the Diva Dynasty where her Savory Diva skills really come into play. She’s a master Rosé Connoisseur. Her diverse palette and background gives her a foodie advantage over most. She prefers caviar with her rosé especially in the Hamptons.
Kavita Channe is known for her work as a sports and entertainment TV host and producer. A true multi-hyphenate, this TV personality, entrepreneur, philanthropist also counts becoming a mother as one of her greatest achievements and one of her biggest drivers to break barriers for women and minorities in both media and television.
As a London native with ancestry from India, Kavita moved to the US when she was five years old, bringing with her goals of creating, entertaining and performing within a competitive field. Realizing early on that her natural talent lay in front of the camera, she attended the University of Florida, earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Journalism, Telecommunications and Business.
After graduating college, Channe launched
The Procurer, a luxury celebrity concierge, and marketing firm. Shortly after she was asked by a client to regularly interview celebs on the red carpet of his Miami venue. This led to TV presenting work, which evolved into national sports broadcasting, and celebrity hosting and entertainment she is known for today.
In 2011, Kavita created her own YouTube channel,
1stDownNDirty. With over 1.6 million views, she interviewed athletes and took viewers behind the scenes of the sports world. That led to an offer by Fox Sports in 2012 to cover nationally aired high school football games along with Florida Panthers broadcasts. Channe was also producing and hosting segments for VIP TV covering all things sports and celebrity in Florida.
By 2014, she had been recruited by the Jacksonville Jaguars to be their sideline reporter and was also added as a host on the all-female daily talk show The Chat on ABC and NBC in Jacksonville. Channe then went on to become the grid-side reporter for NPLG’s GRID (the world’s first co-ed professional sport) as well as cage-side for Titan FC on UFC.
Not only had she become a respected voice in the sports industry, being featured on Mantalk Radio, Fox Sports and many other radio programs nationally, but Channe also produced and hosted her own “Kavita Channe Special,” going one-on-one with sports stars airing on VIP TV.
Beyond sports broadcasting and journalism, Kavita has appeared on television in HBO’s Ballers, the Fox reality TV show Paradise Hotel, and VH1’s Baller Wives. She also worked as a featured correspondent in Designing Spaces on TLC. Kavita has also held roles in feature films, namely Broke: The New American Dream as well as CHECKPOST and Dependence, both by British filmmaker, Aneel Ahmad.
Channe brings a dynamic energy to her many memorable speaking engagements, bringing her talents to the United States, South Africa, Singapore and beyond. She also frequently partners with nonprofits to lend her voice to reputable organizations including the American Heart Association, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Miami Diaper Bank, HANDY, American Red Cross, United Way and 211 Broward where she is a board member.
In the fall of 2017, Kavita launched Channé Rosé, a new rosé wine inspired by her travels in Provence. She was extremely hands-on in the process from conceptualization to the final product, and together with her winemaker Kavita was able to create an award-winning dry, crisp and clean rosé wine that pairs well with a multitude of dishes. Channé Rosé is sold in restaurants and retailers throughout Florida, Georgia, and New York, including Long Island & The Hamptons as well as online.
During this same time, Kavita gave birth to her daughter, Magical Micah, and soon after was asked to grace the cover of Mother & Baby Indiawith a 7-page spread about her experience with motherhood and business. She appeared on the cover again the following year with Micah and her new baby Maverick. Going back to her Indian roots, this was truly an honor for her and her family.
During the recent pandemic, Channe rebranded her youtube channel and launched The Channe Show where she goes one-on-one with weekly guests in many different industries
to talk health, parenting, fitness, sports and hot topics. And this past May, Kavita made the cover of Fort Lauderdale Illustrated with a 10-page spread featuring her award winning wine, entertaining at home and her next endeavor, The 7 Most Fascinating People of South Florida, a yearly TV special highlighting those changing the game in South Florida.
Kavita Channe brings diversity to an industry with her array of talents. Whether on the sidelines reporting for an NFL football team, wowing an audience of a morning talk show, or using her entrepreneurial skills to bring a new product to market, she is constantly using her talents to create new and exciting paths for her already inspiring career. There is no telling where her determination and drive will take her, but in quoting her own words “I DO NOT FEEL THAT I CHOSE MY CAREER…IT CHOSE ME.” If her past is any indication, Kavita Channe has only scratched the surface.
