Brandon Castillo started reporting for KION News Channel 5/46 in October 2014. He was born and raised in San Jose, California.
Growing up, he and his family took many trips to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and Monterey Bay. Brandon is excited to work on the Central Coast because it is so close to home and it brings back a lot of wonderful childhood memories.
Brandon attended San Jose State University, where he studied broadcast journalism. After college, he worked as a political reporter at the State Capitol in Sacramento.
As a Bay Area native, Brandon is a huge San Francisco 49ers and Giants fan. In his free time, he loves hanging out at the beach and playing sports.
Brandon likes meeting new people and listening to their stories. Feel free to send him story ideas!
