You can start your career in broadcasting by applying for a job with KCRA through email. KCRA is Northern California’s biggest local station.
KCRA started to broadcast around the Sacramento area in September 3, 1955. It used a remodelled truck barn found at the northern part of the city. A few weeks later, on September 22, 1955, they began to broadcast at a wider scale using 100,000 watts from an antenna found right next to their station. This antenna was 573 feet, and was the highest structure in all of Sacramento at that time. It is now seen as Northern California’s main local station when compared to other local channels, with twice as much audience compared to other competitors. KCRA has been an affiliate of NBC since it first debuted in 1955.
