Jon K. Brent Promoted to Evening Anchor in Salinas

Just three months after joining KION-KCBA-KCOY-KKFX in Salinas, weekend anchor Jon K. Brent is being promoted to weekdays.

Brent will anchor the 6 p.m. newscast for KION-KCOY and the 10:30 p.m. newscast for KCBA-KKFX. He joins husband-and-wife anchor team Marc Cota-Robles and Jasmine Viel and meteorologist Norm Hoffman on the newscasts.

“In the few short months here, Jon has shown his talent in the anchor chair and we know this addition to weekdays will give us more flexibility and bench strength to the already strong trio of Jasmine, Marc and Norm,” news director Traciann Zeravica said in a statement.

Brent begins in his new role next week. The stations have already begun a search for a new weekend anchor.
