Update:

Interestingly, the four names read by the KTVU anchor appeared in a tweet this past Wednesday:

Asiana just released the crew's names…
Capt. Sum Ting Wong
Capt. Wi Tu Lo
First Officer Ho Lee Fuk
First Officer Bang Ding Ow— Erikalonglegs&clutsy (@LongLegsNoGrace) July 11, 2013

KTVU has since apologized:
