KRON4 announces 10 PM newscast


SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – KRON4-TV is launching a new, one-hour news broadcast Monday-Sunday at 10pm, starting Monday, May 16th.

“We are committed to being ‘The Bay Area’s News Station’ and providing this additional coverage is both an important and exciting opportunity,” said Vice President and General Manager, Ashley Messina. “Being on at 10 O’clock, when the appetite for local news is the greatest, is a natural evolution to our commitment.”

KRON4 will make room at 10pm by moving one hour of its My Net TV Programming to late night.

In addition to the KRON4 News at 10, KRON4 will continue at 11pm with a 15-minute fast-paced newscast summarizing the major news of the day.

“We also want to serve our audience that prefers a late news following network prime,” said News Director, Aaron Pero. “We know that 11pm is getting late for most viewers and a quick recap would be a great alternative.”

Following the 11pm News, KRON4 will transition to entertainment news at 11:15pm with INSIDE EDITION, one of the country’s premiere entertainment news shows hosted by Debra Norville.

The KRON4 News at 10 will be anchored by Bay Area broadcast veteran Pam Moore. Joining KRON4 in 1991, Pam is the recipient of many local and national awards including a Peabody, Emmys, and an award from the Associated Press for Best Investigative Reporting. She is a former VP for Broadcast of the National Association of Black Journalists.

KRON4 will be hiring additional staff for the Newsroom as part of the 10pm news expansion, as well as a new evening co-anchor to be named in the coming weeks. Covering sports will be KRON4 Sports Anchor, Gary Radnich, “We’ll give you the highlights, the hits, the runs, the errors, and a whole lot more,” smiled Gary. Brittney Shipp, who joined KRON as evening meteorologist in January, will continue to bring your microclimate, hour by hour, forecast using the very latest in doppler radar technology.
