KRON president/GM Mark Antonitis (pictured) is quoted in the latest Broadcasting & Cable magazine as saying that at Channel 4, “Nothing gets on the air unless it’s profitable.” The quote appears in a story about how MyNetworkTV affiliates like KRON are airing local shows that make money. For instance the MNT affiliate in Kansas City created a hit dating show that was done before a live studio audience. The KRON successes cited in the article were “Nissan’s Bay Area Backroads” hosted by Doug McConnell and “Bay Area Bargains.”
