Crónica Televisión, also known as Crónica HD, is an Argentine news channel focused on live news reports. It is operated by Estrellas Producciones S.A. (Estrella Satelital) and owned by Héctor Ricardo García.
Rossana González and Gustavo Chapur led the initial broadcast of Crónica TV on 3 January 1994, and it became the first Argentine TV channel to broadcast 24 hours of news and live reports.
For the past 10 years the channel has been the leader in ratings, beating Todo Noticias also in coverage and breaking news.
The channel is well known in Argentina for its populist character and its bizarre treatment of information. Its trademark is the use of red screens and big white letters to announce breaking news, accompanied by the US military march “The Stars And Stripes Forever”.Sometimes the news titles border on foolishness.
