I've been knocking KCBS a lot lately because of the absurdity of their overly-prolific weather reports; OK, it's freezing outside and everyone's miserable but for god's sake, enough, chill guys, wait, stop chilling. Get me more news, more interviews, more Mark Sandalow, for example.
Sandalow is KCBS' Washington political analyst and usually comes on the station's morning news blocks at 7: 30. (Times vary).
Sandalow talks politics. More specifically, he breaks down the BS and tells you the real story and goings-on of Washington Inside and Out-- and more recently, histrionics. You want Tea Party playbook? Sandalow is there. Why Obama hasn't fired some of his political advisers? Cue Sandalow. The Govt. shutdown? He's right there.
And Sandalow knows his business. You might recall he was the Chronicle's beat man in DC before Hearst decided to cut back. Sandalow also teaches a political class. He's well-versed because what some people might consider Washington minutiae is for others, a pure delight. Sandalow gives you an honest, inspired and plain-spoken take on our politicians, including Bay Area pols. He is appointment-listening.
