One of the many problems at KGO--and there's way too much--is the abundance of women. Women anchors, women reporters, women managing editors, (until recently). Just way too many women.
Which means you have to get rid of the women. Not all mind you, just a majority.
The women at KGO have screwed up the formula, just not the format. The men screwed that up.
Look, I'm not a misogynist --but even a neutral observer agrees with me that there's way, way, way too many women at KGO. So, in that spirit, you have to begin eliminating them. It's risky but it's worth it. The less women, the less headaches. It makes sense.
I say, start gradually, and then go full gusto. The less women, the better. Maybe you don't agree? Whatever. You can argue with me but my mind's made up.
