More signs of the coming apocalypse...
KPIX, (CBS5) sent an intern out on a story about face-slapping. I'm not going to go into the meat of the story because it's so patently ridiculous and dumb and embarrassing that it should land the moron who pitched it into the boss' office.
Bruno Cohen: the new VP/GM, is this not further proof that you got issues and it all begins with him.
*Melanie Morgan, I like you, (personally), and because I like you, your co-host has become a one-trick pony joke, predictable too, and patently un-entertaining. Beyond that, the traffic woman is worse than fingernails on chalk board. Maybe she can run errands for the mad scientist at Jack-in-the-Box.
*95.7 The Game has apparently pissed off its shrinking listener base by sponsoring a Giants World Series "viewing party" in Downtown Oakland. The station is the flagship outlet for the A's. Good marketing, Entercom. Was Lew Wolff invited?
*Latest Ronn rumors: looking anywhere to work after the contract expires Dec. 31. At a fraction of what he's been getting the past seven years. I'd still bet he retires, but maybe he'll "work" because it's rough out there and I didn't make that up.
*Torture: The "Armstrong and Getty Show": Midwest hacks that sound like some cartoon program out of St. Louis.
*Torture 2: Donald Trump and Brian Sussman: Birds of a feather...
*Tim McCarver: Barry Manilow? Huh?
*Add PIX: They sent an intern out to do a story. An intern. That, in and off itself, speaks volumes. Paging Black Rock.
*Bill Bungeroth, ex-market Mgr. of SF Cumulus, ultimately got canned because of the Titanic known locally as "KGO, 810."
*Owens back-of-mind plan: take gig somewhere, maybe on the Internet, for a lot less coin and try to spin it as, "see, I'm working!" Which would be great for the mattress folks.
*Brian Flores has a new gig at KTVU and that's great if only I knew who the hell Brian Flores is, but somehow I just don't really care.
