Janis Edmon is now sharing San Diegans' stories as a member of the News 8 reporting team.
Janis brings her own fresh style, along with an impressive background to News 8. A Texas native, Janis was raised in Missouri and comes to San Diego from WTVQ Lexington, Kentucky where she was lead reporter and fill-in anchor for the evening newscasts.
Graduating from Central Missouri State University, Janis majored in Mass Communications and minored in Political Science. She landed her first job at KQ2TV, the ABC affiliate in St. Joseph, Missouri. "Doing it all," Janis not only fine-tuned her reporting skills, she served as photographer, editor and "fill-in" anchor/producer for the various newscasts! From there Janis moved to WBOY, Clarksburg, West Virginia as co-anchor of the 5PM, 6PM and 11PM weekday newscasts. Her stints at KREX, Grand Junction, Colorado and KMAC 28 in Lubbock, Texas broadened her experience as a co-anchor and medical and entertainment reporter.
As the only "American-born" in a Canadian family, there's nothing Janis loves more than a great hockey game! An avid sports enthusiast, Janis loves watching and playing most any sport. Her latest challenge is golf and is thrilled to have the opportunity to play in beautiful San Diego.
A passion for helping others, Janis has spent years volunteering for the American Cancer Society, Special Olympics D.A.R.E and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. In her spare time, you'll find Janis "hanging out" with family and friends.
