Audrey Asistio Joins KNTV As Anchor And Reporter
NBC-owned KNTV San Francisco has hired Bay Area native Audrey Asistio as weekend anchor and reporter. She will co-anchor the evening newscasts including the 11 p.m. on weekends alongside co-anchor Terry McSweeney. In addition, she will report for weekday newscasts.
Asistio comes to NBC O&O WBTS Boston, where she anchored the 4, 5:30 and 7 p.m. weekday newscasts. During her time in New England, she covered several major stories including field-anchoring during the protests following the killing of George Floyd. She also covered the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea and the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan where she was able to showcase cultural and inspiring stories.
Prior to that, Asistio worked in newsrooms all over the West Coast including KOVR in Sacramento, Calif.; KSEE Fresno, Calif.; KHSL Chico, Calif.; and KIMA Yakima, Wash.
This assignment marks a homecoming for Asistio; she grew up in the Peninsula and graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in radio and television with an emphasis in broadcast journalism.
