Friday PM Late Stuff:
*Dan Ashley will offer a few moments of tribute to Carolyn Johnson on tonight's KGO-TV News, probably 6 and 11.
*I'm told station management had a little powwow for CJ this afternoon in the newsroom.
*John Kessler, from KGO Radio, did a farewell on Friday and is off to an unknown NY location. I wonder what prompted it. I mean, it's not as if...wait a minute.
*Original Joe's counter on a Friday night at about 9--linguini and clams. A glass of cab. I'm sure it won't be crowded.
*Yeah, I like red wine with linguini without red sauce--yooooou gotta problem with that?
*Hey, Channel 2, that new reporter, Ms. Smith? Pretty sad when your own workers are sending me jokes. Must have been a Boy Wonder hire.
*When even Gary Radnich on KNBR is making fun of the Giants for announcing "sellouts" in spite of a whole bunch of empty seats at various games speaks volumes. Even "tickets sold" doesn't cut it here because someone high up in the food chain told me there's plenty of good seats available, like tonight, for example. Oh well, at the end of the day, it is what it is.
*Larry Baer just bitch-slapped the great Radu.
*Your 12,550th live shot from Southbound 280 --5, 6, 9, the 10 and 11. (We thank Cal Trans for its contribution to Bay Area TV)
*Have a safe Memorial Day Weekend. ("Happy" is sort of oxymoron, thanks), but be happy, pay your respects and be careful out there.
*Follow me on Twitter
