- KOCO 5 NewsAnchor/Reporter
Erielle Reshef serves as weekend anchor and reporter for KOCO 5 News. An Oklahoma City native, she returned home to join the KOCO 5 News Team in November 2012, after serving as an anchor and reporter for IBA News - Israel's only nationally televised and internationally syndicated English language newscast.
During her time at IBA News, Reshef anchored coverage of global news events, politics, sports, finance, and culture. She has also reported live from Israel's border with Gaza during two separate escalations of cross-border violence.
Reshef has interviewed many international news-makers and media personalities during her career. Some of the more memorable include former Israeli President Shimon Peres, U.S. Ambassador and Peace Envoy Dennis Ross, former CIA Director James Woolsey, New York Stock Exchange COO Larry Leibowitz, comedienne Sarah Silverman, Seinfeld actor Jason Alexander and world famous therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
Reshef graduated cum laude with a BA from Indiana University and from the IDC Herzliya in Israel with a Masters in Diplomacy and Conflict Studies. She is a proud alumna of Heritage Hall High School and Westminster Middle School in Oklahoma City.
Reshef’s international experiences have made her appreciate her Oklahoma roots even more. She is thrilled to return to serve her beloved hometown.
When she's not on the job, Erielle enjoys spending time with her husband, cooking, hiking, yoga, and doting on her family's dogs, three precious Pugs. She also is a HUGE Oklahoma City Thunder fan.
Reshef says that the most inspiring part of her job is the people she meets reporting. She loves hearing from viewers and invites you to share your story ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org
