Added to the inglorious radio spot bastards list: the truly hideous and repetitious George Foreman ads. Hey, George, STHU!
*The non on-air personnel at KTVU --cameramen, techs, and the like are getting squeezed by Fox and their benefits and wages are being cut to the point where the union and rank and file are beyond anxious. This will no doubt make for simply wonderful morale. Or as a longtime photographer told me, "We're getting foxed."
*A few things about the Christina Loren posting. #1. I'd learned about her situation and had not planned to write about it. I only did so because Loren posted her condition on Facebook. Even then I hesitated to post such a private matter but then again, Christina has a very large following and the response from her fans speaks for itself. She's a public person too. Ignoring it would not have been prudent. That said, I wish her all the best.
*In the next few weeks you're going to be inundated by a local media Warriors bandwagon blitz. Standard operating procedure.
*Warriors: Advantage, KNBR 1050 and 680. 95.7 FM, 'The Game?': Uh, we have the A's. Enough said.
*There's something going on at KTVU with the weather people --maybe a personnel change involving the chief banana and someone else. Stay tuned.
*KGO-TV and KRON in the 900 Front building: Beauty and the Beast.
*Suddenly, the morning news on KCBS is overly chirpy. Just my opinion. Don't screw with the brand, boys and girls.
*Speaking of which: Susan Leigh Taylor? When did you all of a sudden turn into Miss Chatty? And enough already about your drives into the city from Pacifica. Gees, what a wonder, there's mist on your windshield!
*Dr. Bill Wattenberg and Mike Zwerling, the owner of KSCO, (which is a paid advertiser on this site) had an extraordinary, informative, yes, entertaining two hours of conversation and, get this, NEWSTALK with intelligent and terrific, informed callers this past Saturday. It was reminiscent of that past relic with 810 next to the call letters. If you want to listen to it, access the KSCO website.
