Thursday PM Talk of the Town
*At KRON, they dumped the weekly sports talk show; reporters are bitching, once again, about chaos in the newsroom--overworked and anxious staffers being screamed and yelled at by the obnoxious ND boor and his Marie Antoinette assistant.
*Those KGO Radio outsourced Dallas traffic announcers? It's really not their fault most are mispronouncing Bay Area city and street names, performing a sad verbal jabberwocky at night and on the weekends--you can thank Cumulus for this radio miscarriage, but oh hell, it provides for rather stunning and extraordinary comedy.
*Savage is, once again, taping his third hour. Not a good sign.
*That bold new logo in the upper right-corner of this blog should provide for a great tease about something on the horizon --but I'll let it speak for itself, for now.
*I kind of like the KGO-TV look --newsroom in the background--even if a lot of you are irritated. By the way, the anchors don't really care --as long as they're on the air and that's what counts---splashy news desks and studio Star Wars-looking sets don't always bring forth quality newscasts.
*Underrated: KRON's 8 PM cast: A no-nonsense, long on story, short on gimmick program with a gargantuan, (by today's standards), fresh and snappy 60-min presentation. Pam Moore is basic and that's real good and Grant Lodes visual enhancement with the news keys is just enough to make things interesting. I like it. Now if only we can all make you guys happy.
