  2. You would have a better chance with her than the fictional TV reporter from Sacramento who you dreamed about and then wrote like it was real.

    1. @11:59, Jan Wahl IS "the fictional TV reporter from Sacramento"

  3. A clown. Not worth commenting on.

  4. I like Jan Wahl. This lady knows hollywood and the way the star system works. Jan can give you an update on a movie set being shot, then back it up with stories about the actors and or directors. I'm surprised there are not more like her, although they may possibly be available online. Jan is a reporter who likes what she's writing or talking about. Her enthusiasm is catching. Her warmth is friendship making. No, I'm not her son, lawyer, rabbi grocer or publicist.

    2. Warmth? I met her at a fundraiser in the city shortly after she left KNBR. I found her to be rude and a phony. On the other hand, Willy Brown was the complete gentleman at the same event.

      Her constant use of the word "glamorous" on the radio drove me nuts (and that was before I met her). She looks like a cow and sounds like a wanna-be critic from the Bronx. I give her zero hats.

    3. Obviously... or Jan itself.

  5. Sex Symbol? I just threw up a little in my mouth.

    1. Jan is another talentless hack on local television. @ a month ago, she reported that Chelsea Handler was signed by Netflix to do a talk show. Of course, Jan had to editorialize by saying that Chelsea had a drinking problem and should get into AA. Chelsea would sue, but she never heard of Jan Wahl or KRON.

    1. As a critic, if she listens to her own commentary, she should fire herself. Now. Just awful. Why does KCBS keep her?

  8. SEX SYMBOL.....I hear she's GIB

  9. If she and Ben Fong-Torres got together in a room, there would be no space to hold their massive self-serving selves.

  10. I just felt it move.

  11. My favorite Jan moment (okay, the ONLY moment).....

    Interviewing runners in costume at Bay-to-Breakers about 10 years ago...

    Jan: "Who are you suppose to be?"
    Runner: "I'm a fairy."
    Jan: "You and half of San Francisco."

  12. I'll leave it to the guys to assess her status as a sex symbol.

    As far as her on-air persona (including her role as a critic), I think that "what you see, is what you get."

    -She IS a self promoter, but that's hardly an anomaly in any form of public life.

    -She knows her niche, and she knows "her stuff," within that niche.

    -She has great enthusiasm.

    -The hat trademark/gimmick, could bother those who are easily bothered. How silly. Carter B. Smith wore Tee shirts, Al "Jazzbeaux" Collins wore jump-suits -- appreciated entertainers.

    -Critics have to "call 'em as they see 'em," in terms of content. But, I don't think that I've ever heard her say (or heard OF her saying), a mean-spirited thing about anyone.

    Critic: Yes
    Sex symbol: I defer
    Fun: Yep

    1. And don't forget that Gene Shallot wore a cheesy mustache that he must have glued on every morning.

    2. I agree, I think she is a very good critic and I like her enthusiasm. I do wish she would cut back on the commercials but that can be said for a lot of folks including another KCBS personality, Kim Wonderly. I have liked her since her days on the old Frank and Mike show on KNBR but the number of commercials she is now doing is getting tiresome.

  13. Thank God she's not a radio critic.

  14. I'd hit it. Never realized she was so stacked !

  15. What's choice C?

  16. She's the sexiest Bay Area talent of all time!

  17. She was good when she had a weekly radio program on the movies (on KNBR?) years ago. The radio commercials today are a little annoying.

  18. She doesn't know anything about movies. Totally out of touch. She wants to be a Hollywood star but can't in a million years. Also she's ANNOYING!!!!

  19. I've never met her, but based on this picture, she looks like someone who is utterly comfortable being herself, angst free and without a pesky identity crisis. How refreshing!!!

    1. A lot like you, huh, Christine! Except you wear no Minny Pearl hat, you are utterly comfortable being yourself despite those who can't stand you, as for angst - you are the Queen of lefty angst, you do have a pesky identity crisis and not enough tits to write home about.

    2. I've never had an identity crisis. I occasionally don a colorful hat(Minnie Pearl, not Minny). I'm a pro-military, pro second amendment, left on social issues, tenth generation American, and I've always possessed a lovely, firm, and ample bosom. good day.

  20. She's nice and approachable. Good for her, for finding a place for her passion. At least the Sleep Train spots are slightly more tolerable.

  21. I could get over the annoying audio if the visual was better. Plus I often disagree on her reviews.
