BEST 6PM Newscast: KGO-TV: Ashley and Ama Daetz straightforward and just enough give and take.
BEST 10 PM Newscast: KTVU's Fox-impaired "10 O'clock" News has taken a hit but it still overall pretty good --can we do less weather teases?
WORST Newscast: the absolute worst-ever 23 minutes of wasted air and complete buffoonery: KPIX's train-wreck dreck: "Night Beat". What a crock of shit. A complete waste, gimmicky, phony, dreadful, forced and disaster-a-minute: GAME OFF!
BEST Investigative reporter: Dan Noyes/KGO-TV
WORST Investigative Reporter: Tony Kovaleski/KNTV
WORST new concept: Tie-less sportsguys and weatherman on Nightbeat? Please PIX
BEST SPORTSCAST: Gary Radnich 6 PM solo: he's still got it on TV; 5-6 minutes of genuinely funny, (sometimes), cohesive sports news and a few comments.
BEST Tightly-written sportscast: Mark Ibanez' two-minute drill on KTVU at 10 PM.
WORST Sportscast: The GAME ON travesty on PIX's KBCW--quick, get a fire-extinguisher!
BEST Morning Weather: Hands down Steve Paulsen on KTVU. Sometimes robotic but still A-Rate and genuine to the max.
BEST Morning TV personality: Sal Castaneda/KTVU: Sal is funny, informative and sincere. Finally receiving the full marks he deserves.
WORST Morning News Anchor: Tori Campbell/KTVU: The Ice Princess.
BEST Morning News Anchor: Frank Mallicoat: Who knew he had a sense of humor? Still hasn't taken away the sting of losing Kessler and Kohara but oh well.
WORST NEW Anchor: Veronica De La Cruz/KPIX: Much a buzz at the start. Friendly, smart and charming turns to phony, deceiving and disingenuous. And please: get the hair thing settled one way or the other, GAME OFF!
