Estrella Satelital, better known by its commercial name of Crónica TV, is an Argentine news cable channel, with its schedule dedicated to live news reports. It is operated by Estrellas Producciones S.A. and owned by Héctor Ricardo García.


Rossana Gonzales and Gustavo Chapur led the initial broadcast of Crónica TV on January 3, 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".[1] Sometimes the news titles border on foolishness; one September 22, the channel announced: 364 days left to the next spring.

"Malevo" Ferreyra suicide

On November 21, 2008 the channel entered in a great controversy, after being witnesses to and broadcasting "live" the suicide of Mario Oscar "Malevo" Ferreyra,[2] an ex-officer of the Tucumán Police Department who was presumed to be a serial killer. This occurred some minutes before Ferreya was to be transported by the Argentine National Gendarmerie to a trial. This was the first time that a suicide was broadcast live on Argentine television.
