Janelle Wang is jumping from KGO ABC7’s “View of the Bay” to KNTV NBC Bay Area’s 5 p.m. news, co-anchoring that show with Raj Mathai, the NBC station announced today.

They also announced that Jon Kelley, former host of the ABC primetime reality show “The Mole,” will join Laura Garcia-Cannon as co-anchor of the weekday morning news program, “Today In The Bay.”

Garcia-Cannon’s co-anchor and husband Brent Cannon is anchoring the 7 p.m. news on NBC’s California Nonstop channel (Comcast Digital Cable channel 186).

Wang will be filling the co-anchor spot most recently held by Jessica Aguirre, who will continue to co-anchor at 6 and 11 with Mathai.

Bay Area Media News


  1. Thrilled to more of your range than on the View from the Bay, Ms. Janelle! Watching you co-anchor the 5PM news on a brand new 50" HD-TV and you look and sound fabulous. You and Raj make a fantastic Bay Area team.

  2. I liked Janelle Wang, in her Daily Show much better than the one they have nowon ABC and think she will be a good addition for NBC…too bad they didn't snatch up Sydnie Kohara a Professional Reporter that would be an assett that CBS 5 trated very badly…

  3. NBC 11 is starting to look like KGO did in the 80' with anchors coming and going you never really could "warm up to" anyone.
