She became an evening news anchor for the NBC affiliates in Champaign, Illinois and later went to work at KOVR-TV in Sacramento, California as an anchor and reporter.[1][6]

Khazei came to Channel 7 in Boston, Massachusetts in January 1994 at the time when Sunbeam Television Corporation took over the station and introduced a "fast-paced, graphics-driven, and aggressive brand of local news" to the Boston market. She worked for the station's morning show and co-anchored the debut of WHDH's first 4 p.m. news.[1]

After being on personal leave since July 2001, she resigned in September 2001 to dedicate her full time to raise her children and be with her husband and family.[7] In August 2007, she returned to her duties at WHDH-TV.[1]

Khazei is married to Scott A. Huff, a Bowling Green State University alumnus and a division manager for a medical technology company, and they have three children, Hayden (born 1994), Walker, and Tatum. They live in Winchester, Massachusetts.[1][2]

She is also the cousin of Massachusetts social entrepreneur and politician, Alan Khazei.[3]
