Jon K. Brent Joins KION-KCBA-KCOY in Salinas

Jon K. Brent has joined KION-KCBA-KCOY in Salinas, CA.

Brent’s most recent job in the television business was an anchor and reporter at KSEE in Fresno, where he worked for six years before being laid off in 2010. Prior to that, he worked at KBTX in College Station and at KCRA in Sacramento.

Brent makes the move to Salinas from Fresno, where he remained after leaving KSEE.

“What a natural professional progression for me to move from my native Central Valley to the Central Coast,” Brent told TVSpy. “The issues are similar in a state that faces tremendous difficulties. On the other hand these markets are destination locations for many tourists and aids that additional area of service that I’m looking forward to being a part of. Couldn’t be happier with the move!”
