  1. Judging by that picture, will she be doing weather as well?

  4. From the picture it looks like she dresses like Darya

    1. Yeah, Pero must be smiling right now. Darya must be PISSED!

  5. She doesn't look much older than 30! I don't think that picture gives her credibility for her new position. She ends up looking like a beach girl.

    1. Aaron Pero will have no problem getting her to settle into her new position and many more eccentric positions.

    2. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    3. Out with the old in with the new. I predict the current morning host will be undergoing a 2 cup size increase soon to compete.

    4. I suspect she isn't, Janice. She should earn the money now and put it away.

  6. She must be related to Funky Cold Medina. Snap!

  7. Life is so hard on the power blond. She wanted to start out as president.

    1. It's classic. She looks like someone spent tens of thousands grooming, dressing and educating her. It's a common thing out here in Danville/Alamo and Walnut Creek. We see it every day.

  8. Why couldn't any of the places where I worked hire any such highly qualified females? Great smile in addition to the two huge qualifications. Go KRON Go!

  9. I hear she's popping out of a cake to meet the staff this afternoon.

  10. Punctuating 8:46 AM and quoting the original Great One, "HOW SWEET IT IS".

  11. Do they have any other job openings and where do I apply? I am willing to be trained.

  12. Anything that gets the morning host dressing slutty again out of jealousy I'm all for.

  13. On Sept10 at Tommy's Joynt I predict that many people will be asking for their change all in $1's. Sounds like a party at KRON!

  14. Funky Gold Messina !

  15. Very Jessica Simpson-esque. Beautiful woman.

  16. You go, grrl! LOL!

  17. This is a bad idea all the way around: there is no way this will fly in the KRON sports department. A woman? Uncle Cranky is supposed to work with a woman boss? Cranky can't work with someone he can't relate to! Because, he's a man, and,.... she's a woman. How is that supposed to work?

    Who is this woman who gets to ruin Cranky's career? She hasn't lived a little bit, and judging by the picture, she didn't have a father and a mother who loved her. Not like Cranky did, anyway.

    Can't wait for the deluge of cringe-inducing sexism soon to be inevitably spilling from Cranky's pill-hole during the sports ramble. Just another target, fresh meat for the Cranky One.

    I might have to start tuning in to KRON again.

    1. If you listened to Raddy instead of just hated him, you'd hear him tell (often) how the best person he ever worked for was a woman at KRON...

      Delete
    2. I did hear that ramble. I believed it for about a minute. The hole in Cranky's story was that he staunchly refused to actually name her. He made a point of referring to her only as "a woman."

      Cranky has no reservations at all about referring to a former producer he worked closely with for many years as being gay (well known, not hearsay), yet when it comes to this mysterious "woman" that he worked with that he admired so much......

      and yet we'll never know who she was. Almost like she never existed. Maybe Cranky was just spinning a yarn.

  18. KRON showing consistency in the profile they hire (from top to bottom)?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ample talent, no doubt..

  20. What a joke! Another airhead bimbo to run a TV station, probably because she was somebody's girlfriend in the front office. She looks like a 20 something. What possible qualifications does this woman have to deserve this kind of a job? What Typical KRON nonsense! No wonder that station is an absolute travesty. Hiring non-experienced bimbettes like this smacks of more typical KRON behavior.

    1. As long as she displays her qualifications on a daily basis there will be no issues.

  21. She was the VP-GM of WDCW in Washington DC.

  22. Seems she has a sales background. I'm not in broadcasting, but it would seem a general manager would have different duties than a news director, same as an executive editor has different functions compared to a managing editor.

  23. A Hustler centerfold will be next.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, because she's pretty she's an "airhead bimbo"? Because she's pretty she's a "bimbette" or she's popping out of a cake or collecting one dollar bills? Does anyone actually know anything about her background, her qualifications, anything? Or is all of this based on a picture?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've worked with her. Quite possibly one of the least qualified people I could imagine for KRON.

    1. Not at all. She's perfectly qualified for that position, will never have to make big decisions anyway. She's there to look HOT for meetings and toe the line. The owners will give her orders and she'll carry them out. Get on her bad side? Boom, you're fired.

  26. Another bean-counter, which makes sense given that KRON will probably be shedding staff as they move over to the KGO studios in the coming months. They certainly aren't hiring anybody to take over and actually fix equipment, improve working conditions and morale or bother to get a certain morning anchor and news director under control.

  27. Having owned two radio stations in small markets I will state with certainty the more attractive females on the sales staff the better the billing will be each month. Advertisers have a hard time saying no to a hot woman. Those of us with a face for radio put together the proposals and tell the ladies "get the contract signed and buy em dinner and drinks."

    ReplyDelete
  28. So, being hot is a qualifying factor nowadays? Who cares if she's a cup K! Some jobs require experience, many younger executives are incredibly talented and full of fresh ideas but to understand the complexities of certain upper management positions these youngsters need more than looks, or large attributes... they need years of experience.

  29. I have worked with her. she isn't qualified to cut my grass, let alone run a TV Station... TOTAL JOKE

  30. She's hardly hot. Everything's obviously fake (teeth, hair color, nose, boobs). What's real are the fat ass & ankles, the skanky wardrobe, her plastered on make-up, and the wafting aroma of her cheap cologne. A total fool, unless you need her to lean over and shake her gargantu-cans for some ancient dude media buyer. KRON is catching on quickly. Not much going on upstairs.
