Seems John Kessler created a "ruckus" at NBC Bay Area over his announcing his new gig.
Kessler, on his Facebook page, regretted his posting.
My reaction? Oh guys, give me a break. You're going to "reassess" Kessler's hiring. Really? You might as well reassess everything down there.
Hell, I'd reassess too. Have you seen your ratings?Can you guys read the room--get a grip and pay attention.
If you're going to castigate a new hire, don't mess with Kess. He's a good guy and he has a huge following. Women like him--men too. That usually adds up to bigger numbers and better demos--can you relate to that?
So, the other anchors were pissed? They haven't earned the right. Again, its not as if the numbers are great. Hell, that's the reason you went after Kessler and Wang to begin with, take that chip off your shoulder.
You're a major-market station acting like a CW affiliate in Tulsa. Get a life, for god's sake.
And don't renege on the Kessler deal.
