John Fenoglio joined KTLA as a general assignment reporter in January 2016.

Prior to joining KTLA, Fenoglio was a general assignment reporter for KTRK, the ABC station in Houston. Reporting in his hometown, Fenoglio covered a variety of issues, including stories of human smuggling from Mexico; Houston’s failed equal rights ordinance; and stories of heroism and tragedy during the Spring of 2015 when thunderstorms, tornadoes and flooding pummeled southeast Texas.

Before KTRK, he served as a weekend anchor and multi-media journalist for KRON in San Francisco. His notable reporting in the Bay Area includes coverage of the crash of Asiana Flight 214 at SFO and California’s severe drought.

His previous experience includes working as an L.A.-based correspondent for CBS Newspath. He was also fortunate to have some international exposure, from his time as a West Coast correspondent for France 24 International News 24/7.

When he’s not following politics, Fenoglio is an avid outdoorsman. He loves to backpack throughout California’s vast wilderness whenever possible. He also relishes any opportunity to go fishing with his brother, who is a fly fishing guide in Montana.

Fenoglio is also a former EMT and volunteer firefighter, as well as a former student of Chicago’s Improv Olympic. He loves great stories, good people, exotic food and all things politics.

    In a remarkable political repudiation, the Democratic-led U.S. House voted Tuesday night to condemn President Donald Trump’s “racist comments” against four congresswomen of color, despite protestations by Trump’s Republican congressional allies and his own insistence he hasn’t “a racist bone in my body.” Two days after Trump tweeted that four Democratic freshmen should “go back” to their home countries — though all are citizens and three were born in the U.S.A. — Democrats muscled the resolution through the chamber by 240-187 over near-solid GOP […]

    The head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement said efforts to deport families with orders to leave the country will continue after an upcoming national sweep that President Donald Trump said would start Sunday. Matthew Albence, the agency’s acting director, said targets were on an “accelerated docket” of immigration court cases for predominantly Central Americans who recently arrived at the U.S. border in unprecedented numbers.

    Trump Drops Effort to Add Citizenship Question to Census, Will Seek Data in Other Ways ‘Immediately’

    President Donald Trump retreated from his quest to add a question about US citizenship to the 2020 census on Thursday, instead asking government agencies to provide records that could determine a head-count of citizens without polling census-takers directly. The turnaround comes after Trump repeatedly said he would continue fighting to insert the question despite a Supreme Court ruling that dealt a blow to the effort last month. It reflects legal reality intersecting with Trump’s desire to bolster his image as an immigration hard-liner as he moves […]

During their third summit at the Korean Demilitarized Zone on Sunday, Trump and Kim agreed to resume nuclear talks. But neither side has indicated they are any closer to resolving sticking points that collapsed their previous summit. On Monday, however, South Korean President Moon […]
