Jannelle So

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:

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.

SoJannelleTV features diverse guests from various backgrounds – artists, performers, celebrities, public officials, entrepreneurs, and Global Filipinos with extra ordinary stories. Previous guests include Apl.de.Ap, Marc Dacascos, Darren Criss, AJ Rafael, Jordan Clarkson, Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Rabiya Mateo, and more.
We also have So Jannelle Spotlights – a spin off from out TV show, where we put a spotlight on issues and current events that impact the Global Filipino Family and Community. It’s also a safe space for individuals to ask questions to our panelists and experts on the call, and a venue for all of us to learn and be better, together.
