OK, KGO staffers...I'm afraid even when there's fragile "good news" and we really mean fragile here, they, Cumulus still find a way to screw it up.
Or, at the very least, DO NOT know how to conduct, handle, coordinate simple business, employee relations, therefore I'll have my own staff meeting with you.
You haven't any idea of what's going on inside and God forbid they can't have a simple meeting to say, like, "look, we like you, are aware of the stories out there, and when we're able to give you the 'specifics, we shall do so." Something easy like that which would quell the current situation of extreme what the hell is going on?
The story is leaking out, (thanks for the attribution, Radio Ink)--the specifics are yet to be laid out and there's a thousand rumors and stories making the rounds on just who, what, and how the new/old/new format will be run. I'm no different than the rest of you all --I do know that indeed a new re-branding is in effect. They've even changed the promos: No more, "KGO, your 'Bay Area 'news station"---now, if you give a listen they changed that to, "KGO, your Bay Area News AND Information station". Clever. (A variation of what they used in the past).
So, staff, take a breather. Relax and eat a tuna sandwich--chill.
I just did what they should have done a few hours ago but clearly, they weren't prepared for this getting out so soon. And damn any memos or meetings.
