Early Leader to take over for Kevin Metheny: Randall Bloomquist and that doesn't sit well for a longtime SF player, like others, none-to-thrilled about the Cumulus exec.
That's the fear at least.
"I'm sure Cumulus is aware at this point that the guy, (Bloomquist), is an empty suit and I'm sure they'd love to 'pawn him off on SF, and get him out of Atlanta.' He has a contract as well so it would be great for them to foist him up on the Bay Area.'"
All Cumulus staff at the SF Cluster were told late Friday not to talk on-air about the Metheny death.
That didn't stop the chit-chat later on.
Already there is grumbling from some people about how many who hated him, (Metheny), who came out of nowhere to begin praising him on-line and calling him a genius.
*One noted producer at KGO who despised him was crying.
*A KNBR noted air-personality: "I just talked to him that, (Friday), morning--I mentioned to him that he had a limp going and he said he had a bad ankle."
*A staff-wide meeting is planned for Monday. Presumably KGO and KSFO people will say something publically. Some of it will be meaningful and some of it will be disingenuous. That's the normal procedure.
