We know about KRON and its murky future based on the TV Spectrum Auction.
I heard something astounding the other day from a broadcast industry official that blew me away.
The person, who asked that I don't use his/her name told me that the KRON frequency is worth a Billion dollars!
Wait a minute; maybe I shouldn't be surprised.
Back to our story--the person went further. Could NBC reverse course and buy KRON to fortify its presence in the Bay Area and right a wrong that killed its Bay Area broadcast position?
Wait a minute, what then happens to KNTV? There's a million questions.
I'm still thinking about that BILLION --and considering KRON's new, complex corporate ownership, there's a lot to consider.
A former KRONvict told me all this news has hit the newsroom like a lead balloon --which might explain why the bottom dwellers at 900 Front are nervous as all hell.
