TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
Rich, I was out getting breakfast on Sunday morning, turned on KGO and heard Mary Rose doing weather and traffic. Has anyone at Cumulus given a thought to her working these markets with that Texas accent? It would be comical if it weren't so sad.
At least they've buried Mary Rose on overnights/weekends. Buzz Barnett in the evenings thinks he's God's gift to Bay Area traffic. Trying to hear him pronounce Junipero Serra...now THAT was comical.
A few days ago, (Saturday or Friday) the traffic reporter placed 237 in Redwood City, I live in Redwood City and I'm about 99.9 % sure 237 is not in Redwood City, later in the broadcast he did get the location right, I think it was the same report, or at least same day, same reporter talked about traffic problems at Gil Street, Berkeley, of course those of us who know the Bay Area well, know it is Gilman Street, it is just so embarrassing, The accent doesn't bother me that much, a good reporter could move from the South, Texas whatever to the Bay Area, but please get the names and location right.
another nitwit try to pronounce or rather mispronounce Montague; in sounded like Montak;How about they get some lessons.
12:06 PM,Recently, a longtime Bay Area reporter (twice) stated that Petaluma is in Marin. This is not the first time that a veteran reporter has made this type of mistake while reporting from the North Bay, and I'm sure it won't be the last!
The key is,say how great things are,modern culture and the social media..tremendous music, equality is breaking out everywhere,live for the moment. Then,years later you can look back and say what great times these were. That's what baby boomers do with disco in the 70's.Wait,maybe that's not a great example...
If in 10 years time people look back at these days as "great times", I want no part of the future.
All the good people in radio and TV have been laid off or put out to pasture. 10:34 is right on the mark.
So - not to change the subject, but did Kim McAllister get canned by KGO, or is she still there, and if so, what time slot?
Kim just had another child so she's on maternity leave
Oh yay! Good for her - glad to hear some good news for a change.....
