Kevin Metheny, aka: "Pig Virus" strikes his first victim ; sends KGO Radio staff into "deep malaise"; trust issue out the door; 'Black Book' updated.
*"Way Too Late" host (12-2 AM), David Weintraub, was told to stay home so Metheny could "try out" new "talent."
Weintraub, one of actual decent talk-hosts on the albatross station, refused to kiss Metheney's ass, a big no-no in Pig Virus' world.
I've reached out to Weintraub to get more info from his perspective.
*What ended up on KGO were two moronic-sounding bimbos clearly not ready for primetime --one bonehead decided to spike up her audition by uttering "vagina"every two minutes--how original!
Here's hour #1, give a listen and tell me this doesn't sound like a bad SNL skit.
Said a staffer to me early Saturday: "It's obvious to the younger women in the building that Kevin is open to suggestion." Read into that what you will. This is proof-positive of Metheny's MO. It works at some stations but inevitably it comes to a crashing halt and what you have left is trouble. Is it any wonder why Pig Virus goes from station to station, gets FIRED, rehired, and FIRED. He does small wonders, exhibits some degree of limited success and works on the cheap, all attractive to the Cumulus higher-ups.
*If we've heard anything about Metheny since his arrival it's that a young woman can curry favor with him, and now we have some first-hand proof of this.
*If Weintraub is off tonight I guess things will be more clear. Maybe he's under the knife for breast enhancement surgery.
