**Don't feel sorry for Chuy Gomez, the dissed tonsil from KMEL who was shown the door by ClearChannel over, what else, da money, has several interested outlets interested in making a deal--beyond that, I'm told, even MTV might be interested in talking to Mr. Gomez.
**Sure, Michael Savage is a pain in the ass to deal with; but he moves the needle. And so, even if word on the street has it that Hannity told Cumulus to stuff it, maybe Hannity saw the handwriting on the wall. His ratings on both TV and radio are down, about 30%, across the board, in fact, and while he 's not going to starve, other than his amen-corner, Hannity has become old news.
**My spy at North Beach Restaurant: a certain morning personality at KGO Radio who likes to sell mattresses arrived in a limo with the owner of the place. The star was hungry and didn't want to come into the joint after a wake. "Get me a sandwich to take home", said the mighty star, and sandwich come and he go home. Weird.
**KTVU and KPIX: "Thanks for trusting us and our gagged reporters who are told not to talk because we are zombies and we can't say a damn thing anymore."
**Hey, NBC Bay Area, (KNTV): I have something you can investigate: why is that 2's ND, Lee Rosenthal, 33 going on 63, is extra-muzzled and can't say a damn thing? Most bizarre: Not only is Rosenthal not talking, but half the newsroom isn't talking to him!
**Note to listeners of KCBS: if you miss the lead story after the 7 AM news, just check back at 8, 9, 10, 11 and Noon, 1 too and you can hear the story you missed at 7. I'm not kidding. Which is pretty both sad and funny at the same time.
**The problem with the entire business, in a nutshell: how can a group of people, who have ZERO respect for their staff, (mostly), then have any RESPECT for YOU, the viewer and the listener? It's THAT simple. They take all of you For Granted, the bastards.
**SAG/AFTRA issues at KRON, (union), is one of the 'issues, but not THEE issue. The old shit and drama is back upstairs --including the drama queen herself who's hijinks continue to make life hell for a lot of people, hence a whole lot of people saying 'to hell with this--I'm outta here!"
**You pompous Bay Area Media peeps? Yeah, about time you became accountable and 415 Media is especially happy to be on your ass. Don't flatter yourself, either. It's Just That the viewers and listeners are wise to you.
**Tori Campbell's contract, recently re-upped, Won't be renewed at KTVU--about three years hence.
**Giddy/gushing glee kids just home from trick-or-treating: the giggle club of "reporters" on the Bay Bridge story. No wonder they're a bunch of stenographers.
