Jannelle So is back on TV!

In 2006 she created, produced and hosted the first and only locally-produced daily talk show for Filipinos in the USA. Regarded as a Filipino-American media pioneer for the show she started, Jannelle successfully ran “Kababayan LA / Today” for eight and a half years, before leaving the show in 2014 to start a family.

Kababayan LA became the longest-running daily Filipino talk show outside of the Philippines. It started syndicating on KIKU TV in Hawaii, becoming Kababayan Today.

Jannelle and the show received numerous accolades, such as:

  • Honorable Mention – The Los Angeles Press Club (53rd Annual Southern CA Journalism Awards)
  • Outstanding Community Reporting – New America Media 
  • Supreme Hero Recognition & City Proclamation – City of Carson, CA USA
  • 100 Most Influential Filipinas in the U.S. – Filipina Women’s Network
  • TOFA Awardee in Media & Publishing -The Outstanding Filipinos in America (8th Annual Awards) 
  • Achievement Award – LA Filipino Association of County Employees
  • Bayanihan Spirit Award – Historic Filipinotown Council, Los Angeles, CA

After a three-year hiatus from the Filipino media and the community, Journalist/Host/Producer/Entrepreneur Jannelle, now also a wife and a mother, is once again back on TV — with a new weekly talk/magazine show called SO Jannelle.
