Take a look at this video--it'll bring back a lot of mostly good memories. You don't see much of this anymore on present-day Bay Area TV News.

Well, I miss Dennis and Elaine --miss "Big Mac" and Kate Kelly at KPIX when PIX mattered. I miss the KRON class of Bob Jimenez, Evan White, and Mark Thompson. Jimenez was cool, calm and collected.

Many of you don't know that Roberta Gonzales worked at the old "San Jose News Channel", KNTV and those like me who had a serious crush on Maggie Scura. Whoa!
Several of you forgot that Sylvia Chase, who KRON paid big bucks to nab from ABC to come out west and work at 1001 Van Ness. She debuted after the Super Bowl in 1986. About the last time Gary Radnich referred to KRON as his "Buster Brown" outpost.
One of the best anchor teams ever in the 80's: Evan White, Bob Jimenez, Mark Thompson and Radnich. (Gary, if only you could be a quarter of what you once were on TV).
