We scheduled a second episode of Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures to air on those dates until all technical issues could be resolved and resumed airing Quiz Kids as normally scheduled on May 7. Effective May 1, KRON ceased carrying AntennaTV on its multicast 4.3 stream. AntennaTV was replaced by GetTV. On Saturday, June 4 due technical difficulties resulting from a loss of power to the 900 Front Street facilities, KRON was unable to air regular programming from 1:30pm to 7:00pm, including E/I programs scheduled to run from 1:30pm to 4:00pm. The pre-empted episodes were made good in their normal timeslots on Sunday of the following weekend.
