One of the biggest gripes against the closure of the KGO Radio South Bay Bureau happens to be San Jose Mayor, Sam Liccardo.
No big news there.
But Liccardo is so steamed that he's planning on bringing the matter directly to the source.
That might be a problem
Liccardo is scheduled to be on the Ronn Owens Show this (Tuesday) morning. And Liccardo, I'm told by a source, would like to ask Owens himself...on the air. The question now is how Owens and his producer try to vex the plan, in essence censor the mayor. Not saying it's not going to come up but KGO has a history of silencing the lambs --it and Cumulus doesn't take to liking its assorted dirty laundry make the airwaves.
This much is certain. Liccardo is supposedly steamed that his city and region is being pushed aside by KGO even though KGO apparently doesn't have the money to keep its bureau open and staffed with reporters. You would think even dumb Cumulus would want a presence in the heart of Silicon Valley but apparently they didn't get the memo. Maybe their too busy handing out SweetJack coupons.
Give a listen to Ronn today. If Liccardo is silenced we'll know first hand that the mute button has been used on the mayor of the second biggest city in California.
