Karel, you were done a few months ago--it was set to happen, only Ron Escarsega was blown out and inadvertently saved your ass. I heard it from a good source and you know it too.
The truth is a bitch.
*Over at KPIX, a friend texted me about alleged newscast, "Night Beat."
"What would McElhatton think?" Different world, dude.
*Repeat, Ronn Owens was getting destroyed in the ratings by Spencer Hughes on KSFO when Hughes was opposite him...and another: although there's not been enough time to measure the numbers, Ronnnnn will be trounced by Rush Limbaugh too.
*Prediction: Because it has little to lose KPIX will carry on with Night Beat at 10 PM if only to try to save face and protect its Veronica De La Cruz investment. Her cosmetics account cost more than the newscast has made.
*KQED Forum host, Michael Krasny, celebrated his 70th birthday on Sept. 28. Big Marin event: One of the guests was Robert Redford, who has called in to Krasny a few times.
*I've given up on SFGate. Everytime I log on my computer freezes --enough. Go to SF News instead.
