James Fletcher anchors the KRON 4 Morning News from 4am - 6am and then reports from the newsroom until 10am.  He came to KRON 4 in January 2002 as a freelance writer and quickly moved up the ranks.  As a full-time producer, James managed a number of KRON 4 newscasts including the 4PM News and the Bay Area s number one weekend morning newscast, "KRON 4 News Weekend."

James also helped produce the live broadcasts of such high-profile programs as "Bay to Breakers", "The S.F. Pride Parade" and "Carnaval San Francisco Parade."  Most recently, James served as senior producer of the KRON 4 Morning News, the nation s only six-hour local morning newscast.

Prior to joining KRON 4, James was the main evening anchor for the NBC station in Chico (KNVN-TV).  During his time there he also served as morning anchor, weathercaster and occasional host of "North Valley Viewpoints" - a weekly roundtable discussion of local issues.

James came to California from the Pacific Northwest where he anchored local CNN Headline News updates from its bureau in Moscow, ID.  Before that, he lived in Maryland where he hosted two Public Television programs, "Performance Profiles" and "Backstage News" - both highlighting local performers and artists.

James has worked in television since 1993 and says the Bay Area is by far his favorite part of the country to live.  "I ve lived in Hawaii, Maryland and the Pacific Northwest.  Everything I loved about all those places I ve found here.  The forests of Maryland, the snow of Washington, the oceans of Hawaii and the great local restaurants and eateries of Chico.  I hope everyone realizes what a special place this is."

James graduated from the Edward R. Murrow School of Broadcasting at Washington State University.  He enjoys traveling, dining, theater, a good book and great television.

He lives in the East Bay with his wife and two young children.
