"I can't believe they let her go", her being Christina Loren from KNTV. I can't tell you how much I 've heard and read that reaction from people. Well, it's further proof that no one is safe anymore, not even those who are prominent personalities on their respective media outlets.
Not that Loren was hugely popular and garnered worship status but she definitely had a very large, loyal following among men, women too.
That didn't save her from her eventual fate though. As I pointed out, Christina will land on her feet and have a job soon. Those close to her told me she's almost relieved to be able to sleep in and have her mornings back. There's always a silver lining to being let go particularly when you might be looking for something new, something different, a change of scenery--everyone benefits.
*If Loren doesn't end up somewhere in the Bay Area, she might be headed to LA where they seem to snatch up many of our blond weather forecasters --i.e., Evelyn Taft and the like.
*Sure, Loren has the body. But even better, brains too. Score one for the Diane Sawyer card. Yes, I said, Diane Sawyer. Still hot and getting hotter.
*You, the average viewer, like and appreciate the KRON "Back Story" show. But you, the astute viewer have an understanding and can comprehend the real, non-bullshit goings-on at KRON and know the program is a crap full of...
*Memo to News Directors in town: No matter how many times you tell staff not to talk to me I still get the word. In fact, the more you spiel, the more info I get so keep it going. Some of you get it, others, not so sure.
*The morning weekday war at KGO-TV is once again boiling over. She might have to update the resume soon. He can't wait for them to lower the boom but that might require some heavy lifting if you know what I mean.
*KRON: Between your shitty lighting and the camera in anchorwoman's face you really don't know what the hell you're doing. If this doesn't eventually get fixed, you might really be an albatross --wait a minute.
*I don't have the information yet or the breakdown but I can bet KPIX had a spectacular May sweeps for 11 PM, thank you David Letterman.
*Speaking of the devil, quick rundown on May sweeps: KGO, very good, ditto, PIX. KTVU and KNTV, flat. KRON: Don't even ask. Time for the doofus to commence screaming and yelling on Tuesday.
