Sanika Bhargaw is excited to join the NBC15 news team as a multi-media journalist/reporter. Sanika was born and raised in the Chicago area so she is happy to be back in the Midwest, making Madison her new home.

Before coming to NBC 15, Sanika worked as a reporter, anchor and producer for Annenberg TV News, the student-run news station at the University of Southern California. She also interned with NBC4 in Los Angeles and with General Electric’s communications team in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Sanika graduated from USC in 2018 with a degree in broadcast journalism.

When she’s not working, you can probably find Sanika going dancing, a hobby she picked up during her time as a competitive ballroom dancer. She also loves being outdoors, reading and exploring the delicious food options in the city.

Sanika is thrilled to be in Madison and can’t wait to explore the city and be a part of the community. If you want to share story ideas – or restaurant recommendations – you can contact her at
