The Governor’s Citation also went to a usually-

her outstanding service to the television industry
and community during her many years as Executive
Assistant to five different General Managers at KGO-TV.
During a brief video presentation, Hollywood stars
Danny Glover and Delroy Lindo, as well as anchors
from competing stations, Barbara Rodgers and Pam

thanked her for her tireless commitment.
Even one of the three new “premium” awards broke
many pre-conceptions within the broadcast region.

went to KNTV (NBC 11), after only its fourth year as a
network affiliate in the San Francisco market.

Presenters representing stations from Chico to
Fresno, Reno to Hawaii, helped highlight the geographic
and ethnic diversity of the Northern California region.
And in the end, despite the record number of 829 en-
tries, the Emmy® trophy proved no easier to win than in
previous years, with just 27% of entrants receiving
nominations, and only 8% invited on stage to
give acceptance speeches.
The entire list of winners is printed below. We hope
you had as much fun at the awards and after party as we

Two KRON 4 Executive Producers became News
Directors in May. One is staying put, the other has to

KRON President/General Manager Mark Antonitis
promoted morning EP Aaron Pero to News Director after
a national search. Pero was the architect of KRON’s
expanded five-hour morning newscast that now devotes
the bulk of its time to traffic and weather. The show has
defied critics by actually increasing its market share
despite reducing its staffing. Antonitis says Pero
“changed the face of morning news in the Bay Area and
brought up KRON’s ratings by 40%.” He also says Pero
has paid his dues by “waking up at 3:00am for the last
three years.”
Pero graduated from CSU Sacramento and began his
career at KXTV in Sacramento in 1992 as a writer.
