Morning Anchor Changes at KRON

San Francisco’s KRON has made some changes to its morning anchor line up, according to bay area blogger Rich Lieberman.

Justine Waldman was moved from morning anchor in the newsroom to evening reporter while Mark Danon has been moved from the main anchor desk to Waldman’s slot in the newsroom.   James Fletcher has been tapped to fill Danon’s spot on the main anchor desk.

Lieberman has also posted a KRON staffer’s view of the station’s new graphics package,
