WCVB’s ‘Chronicle’ Celebrates 30th Anniversary

The Boston Globe profiles “Chronicle,” a daily news magazine on Boston ABC-affiliate WCVB, as the show marks its 30th year on the air. The program — which WCVB president and general manager calls “the little local show that can” — stands out as a more detailed look at the city’s news among the “fast, urgent world of Boston television”:

Tucked in a separate newsroom within WCVB, a whiteboard highlights the various “Chronicle’’ story assignments for the next few weeks; one that was on the board last week was called “Luxe for Less.’’ The feature will show Boston consumers where they can find high-end bargains at restaurants and designer showrooms. Another upcoming story will whisk viewers to the Bahamas for a winter escape.

“We shoot a little more, we take a little more time to edit, we really try to do a mini-documentary every night,’’ said Chris Stirling, the show’s executive producer.
