KRON is the Bay Area's soon-to-be independent television station.  KRON-4 loses its NBC affiliation to KNTV in San Jose on January 1st.  Channel 4 used to be the home of the Bay's most recognizable faces, but 'RON has lost most of them when the announcement was made that they would lose NBC and go at it on their own.  Most notably, Pete Wilson announced that he would be leaving his post at KRON on December 31st and moving to cross-town rival KGO-TV.  Wilson also has a daily talk show on KGO Radio AM 810.  Wilson will anchor KGO's 6:00 PM edition of ABC 7 News with Jessica Aguirre.

On October 22nd, 2001, KRON-4 shed its six-year-old graphics package (there was a new open made in-house this January when the newscast title was changed from NewsCenter 4 to KRON 4 News, but everything else stayed the same) and dumped Michael Boyd's KRON Instant Classics news music package.  Now, the new KRON 4 News has a fresh, new look, and it's set to the subtle yet hard-hitting tunes of Stephen Arnold's Overture package.  

What will happen with KRON on January 1st, 2001?  We'll just have to wait and see.  We do know that we will see an expanded morning newscast from 5:00 AM to 9:00 AM, a new hour of news in the midday, and a new 9:00 PM newscast.  Stay with Northern California's TV News Site  for all of the information as the Bay's Big Switch happens.
