KGO-TV responding to my report--finally.
This is the same news operation that hasn't even acknowledged one of its core anchors is leaving.
Of course when you have a mini-mutiny in the newsroom where no one has any trust nor like for the News Director you have grumpy denials with no one directly quoted.
You have this:
“This is the latest in a long string of inaccurate and venomous ramblings by a local individual on his personal website” KGO said in a statement sent to TVSpy. “His latest post regarding two beloved KGO employees is not true and further demonstrates that he and his so-called ‘sources’ have no actual knowledge of any of our business dealings.”
Was I wrong here?
That's a 'long stream'.
And notice no one is directly quoted. KGO said in a statement Huh?
KGO is in a state of denial with a newsroom chock full of resentment and anger. No one has any faith in Tracey Watkowski and, by extension, her assistants. Of course nobody can talk but the general feeling is that Trixie is in way over her head and has zero people skills. "She's never been out there-- on the line--she's never been a reporter. All she is really is a bureaucrat," said one veteran staffer, who didn't want their name used for fear of retaliation. The staffer's words are shared by many. Any wonder why people are leaving KGO in droves lately? Just sit back and watch the abyss here, they're will be plenty of more skirmishes.
