Some of the issues plaguing San Francisco can be found in nearly every community across the country — poverty, crime, homelessness and mental health. KNTV, NBC Bay Area in San Francisco is searching for solutions to these deep-rooted problems plaguing the city in a streaming investigative series, Saving San Francisco.
In The Moms of Magnolia Street, the Bay Area’s KNTV followed three women and their families who illegally moved in and occupied a single-family home that had been vacant for years, beginning a movement addressing government-sanctioned home discrimination, predatory lending and the corporatization of housing.

The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), San Francisco’s transportation network, serves more than 420,000 commuters each day. KNTV’s investigative unit spent months recording on BART trains at all hours to explore how a once-renowned transportation network became one of the most dangerous in the country.
The documentary exposes allegations that the school covered up nearly three decades of sexual abuse on campus and shielded teachers accused of abusing students from prosecution. “If it weren’t for our investigative team’s reporting, many of these allegations may have never come to light,” said Stephanie Adrouny, KNTV’s news director.
