Vern Glenn got the weekend gig at PIX simply because he's better, much better than the person he's replacing. He has experience in this market, a good 20 years and change at the Van Ness corral plus he's funny and unique and will do a good job. Never cared for Coyle and apparently, I'm not the only one.
And for Vern, it has to be a huge sigh of relief to remove himself from the 800-lb. gorilla that often used him as his kick machine. Glenn would never admit it--but you bet it had to wear on him and, finally, he can now do his thing without the big face riding him.
*It's not 100% official, but word is that KPIX' ad-show maggie, "Eye on the Bay" is a goner.
*Let's not pile on KTVU for its gobble up of pool video the other night, Clearly it was not the right thing to do, but other stations have done it in the past and tempted, would probably do it in the future. Either case, "Special Ed" is hearing from all members of the TV news gulch.
