Oh, and just to set the record straight: I have never spoken to you. You are not a source, keep dreaming. You do say a lot, but please, don't flatter yourself. And keep on writing, you're damn entertaining.
*Weintraub's rants: if this is intentionally leaking, then, KGO, you have, uh, issues. And admitting you tanked a show? Good honesty. You're right. You suck, but you suck, good. (Insert: sound effect).
*Then again, we have the old usual suspects--like the boy wonder who has a title and an office and supposedly runs the place, the assist. PD? Try this story that was verified by at least two staffers. Before the December coup, JareHead was asked, politely, by then talk host, Gene Burns, if he could close a window in the KGO offices. The response? "Get a blanket!" That should tell you a lot about the guy that produces the morning host's program. Your "esteemed"colleague , Ronnie. Stay silent and thirsty, my friend.
*Most of the KGO Radio vets know I have no beef with them. Even my most hardened critics--reporters, news writers, anchors, et al, understand that my venom is directed at the Atlanta dickheads. They have now completely run to the ground the station into a bottomless pit. And they're not done yet.
*Classy, Hosely: Blow out a longtime traffic reporter with a bs memo that "you do not fit into the new KGO business model." I'm para-phrasing, but the gist is right. These are evil people. Get that in your head. EVIL.
*Even more embarrassing at KGOne is the over-usage of KGO-TV air talent; Mike Nico's weather reports in the mornign and Sandhya Patel, (who I like, in the PM); reporters, Leslie Brinkley, Wayne Freedman. That's just plain sad. KCBS does equal sharing, but not to the extent of KGOne. Consolidation rules the day.
*Weintraub and Jared Hart: Further proof that Darwin was wrong.
*That was a real in-depth "interview" by the moring news dynamic duo, Tuesday. A hard-hitting 10 minutes with Oakland mayor, Jean Quan. What did the listeners, all 10 of 'em, learn? Food trucks hit the Hawthorne street entrance around 11: 30. Great, thanks for the info.
*Wonder if the taco truck takes SweetJack coupons.
*Ronn topics pre-holiday: how to get a new gadget financed; should you use your cell phone while on the toilet and where the best manicures can be had on Union street.
*Ronn, I know you have issues. We all do. But damn, your act is so transparent. And it ain't just me, ask around the bar at North Beach restaurant.
*Glad to hear Officer Vic, (Tom Benner), has become traffic updater at 910 AM's, Armstrong and Getty.
*Entercom has closed the deal on purchasing the old KBLX.
*Congrats to KGO afternoon anchor, AP anchor winner, Brett Burkhart. Good work.
*Ronn's having CBS local financial reporter and his social buddy, Brian Banmiller on today, (Tuesday), at 11: AM. Lorenzo, make sure to close down the back room. Those two egos might very well suffocate the prociutto.
