Every day I see new reporters, particularly on KTVU which seems to be a minefield for anyone passing a decade in Jack London Square. Yeah, I'm aware of the budget business but seriously, Channel 2's staple, among many, was its place where most people seemed to stay. Hello Rita Williams. Lloyd LaCuesta.
Now, new reporters come and go. Revolving door? Try an In and Out Burger only a TV station and "2" attached to it.
*I like smart, aggressive, engaging, funny, and yes, attractive women reporters and anchors, how creepy. Call me crazy.
*KGO Radio is looking for a "fill-in" reporter. Your oxymoron item for the day.
*Yahoo! Sports Talk Live: Just damn riveting.
Underrated: KTVU's veteran street reporter: Rob Roth. Ditto PIX's ace Oakland/Eastbay correspondent, Christin Ayers.
*Carroll over at the Chronicle wrote yet another cat column. The man loves pussycat.
*KNBR is running 37 minutes worth of spots in any given hour. Cool. And they wonder why AM radio is an albatross.
*Bruno Cohen's relative quiet reign over at PIX since taking over has not only me wondering out loud.
*If Liz Cook could do a simple Q and A with reporter at scene she'd be pretty damn good. And that's no knock because she reads the teleprompter well and that's not as easy as it looks.
*At KGO-TV, the studio set is back. No more newsroom casts. Or, as one cranky veteran told me, "The lights are on but nobody's home." Rimshot!
*Hey, Ama Daetz, it's not against the law to laugh a little.
*Yeah, I know Claudine Wong is smiling now --all because of me--yet, still, the zombie persona still exists. Claudine: You're a nice-looking woman and you too read the teleprompter really well but it's a morning show, for god's sake, wake us up every now and then! Maybe ask Mibach to tell a joke? Couldn't hurt.
*Angry and smug: Stan Bunger. Stan, humility is a virtue. Just ask Madden.
*KALW: KPFA with nicer furniture.
*KCSM: A diamond in the rough.
*A good read-- digital, paper, and cultural: the snappy Peter Hartlaub at SFGate and the Chronicle.
*Overrated: Gasia Mikaelian. Just slightly above average in my book but what do I know.
*The cable hunters are all over Ken Wayne only is Ken Wayne willing to try out Atlanta or Seacaucus real estate.
*Armstrong and Getty: Yeah, Clear Channel's version of Lewis and Martin. These are the same people who think "Frosty" and Gil Gross are entertaining. Sure, about as compelling as a one-legged hooker.
*The snot-nose whiner over at KQED thinks his shit doesn't stink. Only management is beginning to pay attention, so be careful or you might be headed to Fresno to interview bitchy cosmetics clerks from the local Target.
*Heather Holmes was doing a live shot from the twerking chick show over at the Oakland Arena the other night, when, according to some sources, snot came out of nose. Maybe it was sign --karma is a bitch.
*Jenna Susko over at KNTV, (NBC Bay Area): OK, so although I don't know if any of your content is making waves, but damn, you look like something.
*Horny Guy dept: Those Fremont boys with sideburns who think Kate Scott is cool. Yeah, very compelling, next thing you know Gloria Steinhem is going to anoint her.
I need some coffee.
