John Franchi is your evening anchor at NBC16. You can watch him anchoring NBC16 news at 5 pm, 5:30 pm, 6:30 pm and 11 pm every weeknight.
John joined KMTR after spending time at KBAK in Bakersfield, CA. While in California's Central Valley, John had the chance to cover three Major League Baseball All-Star Games, the Amgen Tour of California cycling race, and the 2012 World Series. John was proud to be a member of KBAK's anchor teams that won the Emmy Award for Best Weekend Newscast two years in a row.
At KMTR, John was the sports anchor and followed the Ducks' magical 2014 season before he made the move to the news desk.
When he isn't reporting the news of Western Oregon, John likes to spend time participating in Crossfit, traveling and watching classic movies. A native of San Francisco, John is a die-hard fan of the Giants, 49ers and Warriors. He says being able to cover the Giants' win over the Tigers in the 2012 World Series was one of the best experience of his life.
