Mid-Day Water Cooler--
Talk at KCBS: closing down the bureaus. They already shuttered down the City Hall Bureau.... Cutbacks the talk of the newsroom although, according to one of my insiders, nobody is worried, yet.
*That secret Cumulus meeting took place (as reported here) --something BIG going down anytime sooner rather than later. (Think KGO).
*Potential huge staff shake-up at KQED Radio. In the morning, especially. Think "Forum."
*Add KCBS: If CBS really did sell radio who'd buy? Intense interest.
*Paul Deannu: The thinking man's Brian Hackney.
*Not only a loudmouth but a schmuck too: Mark Matthews.
*Underrated: Peggy Bunker.
*KRON: Now that you finally got the camera right (slightly better) fix the damn lighting. (Too bright)
*Total package: KGO Weather Woman, Lisa Argen. Smart, elegant, attractive and sweet too.
*Way, way overrated: KQED's smarmy, "Check Please." Let's get three obnoxious yuppies dinner out and tell us their restaurant experience. ZZZZZ. (Yeah, I know the host is hot, OK.)
