TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
Very Interesting Perhaps the Q has a Real plan for the Market.
What happened to Gary "tiger blood" Pizzati? I thought he was coming in to shape up the SF market!?
Wasn't Pizzati just "interim manager?" I never heard he was named to the position permanently. Sounds like fixing KGO will be priority #1.
Deidra Lieberman must be shaking in her boots.
Why would Deidra be shaking in her boots? Does Steve Sklenar have knowledge, connections or experience in this market? Does Steve Sklenar have a Talk/Sports radio background? This guy refers to San Francisco as "San Fran". Rule #1...never call it San Fran or Frisco. This small time, former "DOS" from San Diego is going to need all the help he can get. The question is, will Deidra provide him with her knowledge and expertise of this market? Who is Steve Sklenar and why does anybody think he can run a cluster of this magnitude? Look at all the VP's, DOS' and Market Managers in this market, they ALL have an extensive history in Bay Area radio. They also have the respect of their fellow Bay Area peers and the Bay Area advertising community. I really feel for the naive, poor bastard. Who is he?
Gary Pissanti was a short term "fix" who didn't "fix" anything. He supposedly tried to sell off some of the news cars to make budget. That's the word around Cumulus. I don't know why anyone would be worried about an outsider coming in on the sales side. Cumulus can't keep sales people, let alone fire experienced ones. It's not anyone's fault by the DickHeads that KGO can't be sold because KGO fell off the earth.
