So, here comes a juicy little story live and direct, deep from the darkest chambers of the building at 855 Battery.
No sir, he despises Liz Cook. Can.not.stand.her.
And he does the 5 PM news along side her.
I got this from a mole that knows the building inside and out and has great knowledge of the PIX operation.
Martin, according to my eye and ear, is livid about Cook's lack of credentials, lack of pedigree, lack of ability to offer even the slightest bit of care and thought. Allen's words, according to the mole, not mine. This comes to me, unsolicited by the way, just as KPIX has hired a new anchor, Veronica De La Cruz, from MSNBC, to do the 6 and 10 news. Cook still does the 5 and 11 but used to do the 5, 6 and 11, the virtual face of the station. I smell something here.
Coincidence? You be the judge.
Martin's hostility toward Cook involves the general consensus inside PIX that Cook only got the job because her father is some higher-up Disney exec who supposedly schmoozed the hell out of upper management.
