Media General, which owns KRON, said it will sublease space from KGO for its operations. The station said it will remain independent with separate broadcasting facilities. No staffing changes are expected in the move.
“We see this move as an excellent opportunity to invest in KRON’s future and its ability to even better serve the San Francisco market with outstanding local news,” said George Mahoney president and CEO of Media General. “The new space will provide a separate studio for our use that is a significant upgrade from our current studio, and we will configure other space to meet our specific needs. The new space will enable our employees to collaborate more effectively as well as enhance their ability to serve our viewers and advertisers.”
KGO has its studios and control rooms on the first floor. Its newsroom and offices are on the second floor. An ABC spokesperson told TVSpy KRON will occupy the third floor of the building.
