TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
How in the heck am I supposed to find someone I've never heard of?
1:14.....This is Grown Folks talking over here, it doesn't concern you. Go back to you ball games. Your presence is not required here.
I worked with Barbara from before her first days at KTVU. Don't make a big deal of this. She wouldn't go anywhere without telling her family. She's one great mother. I'm sure she just wants to cool her jets.
I could be reading this all wrong, but its ironic that someone who talks for a living may have had no one to confide in during this most trying time. I take it she is not at her home.
How do you know she "may have no one to confide in during this most trying time"When's the last time you talked to her...never. When things like this happen we all react in different way. Many if not most public people are very private folks. She is a very strong lady. You will hear from her when she's ready.
Please. Not another Duane Garrett situation. Hoping Ms. Simpson checks in soon.
Respect her privacy. She deserves it. Her contract may have stipulated what not to say or do and Cumulus is litigious. Why do you think we don't see posts from other "non-active" people until after a period of time?
I hope this Amber Alert thread is taken down. It feels disrespectful of her privacy.
It is. She owes nothing to respond whatsoever and probably has more on her mind than answering posts. You'll know when the time is right. She wouldn't hang her entire life on a part-time weekend radio job that pays $250 a shift after 19 years.
Does anybody know if Barbara Simpson has severed all ties with KSFO? Just because her weekend show was cancelled does not necessarily mean the station will no longer use her as a fill-in host or to do radio ads. If that's the case, that would explain why her KSFO Facebook page is still operational and why she has been very tight-lipped about commenting on the situation.
She was fired / terminated. She's free to do advertisements for anyone, especially those who advertise on KSFO. As for fill-in, doubtful. She didn't like the management plan and argued with them about it. As mentioned, she either doesn't own the KSFO Facebook page and it takes about two weeks for them to take it down (from experience) or, if not, she's just not responding and probably for good reason. She's probably had enough of the Cumulus BS.
Rich can you help us track down Bernie Ward while you are at it?
http://lionoftheleft.blogspot.com/He is still in prison, going to be released this year.
Unless there is a missing persons report don't worry about it. If no one from her family has heard from her by now they would have contacted the police days ago.Non-story.
Which family members are "concerned"? Could it be that she's just taking a little time for herself before planning her next move? Maybe it's just that she is speaking with her attorneys who have advised her not to make any comments or posts? Maybe she's having a new official photo taken and the make-up is taking a little longer...Here's something from 1986. She was a veteran of the industry then...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_hE5XLXt3c sorry if it has already been posted.
She's probably sitting on a beach in Hawaii reading this and laughing.
Sure hope the Babe didn't jet off down Mexico way. Yesterday Mexico City had a 6.4 Earthquake south-west of Mexico City. Felt as far away as Acapulco.
Most likely taken away by aliens in a flying saucer.When she comes back she will write a best selling book about it.And everyone will think she is nuts except Coast to Coast AM.
Why all of this twitter and nonsense about a nutty weekend talk show host on a station that only bigots and right wing extremists listen to. Who the f....cares about Barbara Simpson?
Actually, you're the bigot. And profoundly ignorant as well.
Did it occur to any of your morons that maybe her show is cancelled but they she might still be on the payroll and contractually unable to make a public statement about any of this?
She writes a column published every Monday on www.wnd.com She always said that she wrote her columns ahead of time, so last Monday mentioned nothing about KSFO, and maybe was written before anything happened. It is posted on wnd.com Sunday PM-Monday AM. I will be interested to see if this next column mentions anything.
Oh, good grief! What kind of bizarre theory (conspiracy, or otherwise), are you suggesting?Because she doesn't contact YOU, she's "MIA?" What crap!Were I in her shoes, I'd likely be spending time with family (Mother's Day is Sunday), or enjoying a great get-away vacation.Of course, there's always the possibility that she's sitting back, getting a kick out of you suggesting some sinister scenario. I hope that's it.
Chill everybody. Barbara strikes me as a very levelheaded woman, I'm sure since the firings at KGO she knew something like that could happen, although most of those hosts were more liberal than Barbara I know she liked and respected Gene Burns, and she once had John Rothmann on her show interviewing him, it sounded like they liked and respected each other. I heard callers voice concern about her show continuing, and she usually said for now we are fine, but who knows.I'm a woman in Barbara's age group, and I have been through some heavy changes the past few years. Sometime you just don't feel like talking about, or repeating your trials and tribulations, it brings it all back, when all you are trying to do is to move on with your life. I can imagine Barbara, saying to hell with everybody and (except her closets family)and everything that intrudes in our lives constantly these days, twitter, face book, cell phones etc. I'm going somewhere by myself for awhile, sometimes it is good to be a little selfish. Let's face it, since her show was cancelled she not really a public figure anymore and she does not owe us any explanation.
> KSFO mum...For the same reason the government is "mum" about UFOs, sasquatch and Amelia Earhart. There's nothing to talk about.
In this day and age. she should at least make a brief statement on her blog letting family and friends and listeners know she is okay.Simply no excuse for making family members worry (if that is indeed true, although I am sure Rich has verified that).Sheeesh.
