Staffers at KTVU, including all the news talent and editors and producers, have been out of the loop and were said to be frustrated over the lack of information coming from lame duck management. Everyone pretty much assumed that Rosenthal was gone once Raponi was leaving for Boston but were still kept in the dark.
Rosenthal's short tenure at KTVU was marked by a particularly gruesome episode that might have sealed the fate of most other news executives. It was fortunate for Rosenthal that Raponi took most of the heat over Asiana Namegate.
Few people at KTVU ever warmed to Rosenthal who many saw as an eager-beaver, out-of-touch newbie exec clearly not ready for primetime in Jack London Square. Staffers complained of Rosenthal's over-reliance on 21st Century gimmicks like Facebook and Twitter models for news segments.
The shit really hit the fan when other news executives under The Boy Wonder were routinely tweeting Fox shows and participating in marketing department promos. This is, after all, KTVU, still regarded as the gold standard for local TV news stations in the Bay Area.
