--If I were the Giants, excuse me, yes, I would be a little annoyed if one of my more notable broadcasters--in this case, Dave Flemming, would be off, "on assignment", during the front stretch of a pennant race, doing games for ESPN and the like.
--Speaking of sports and the Giants, the 49ers will play a meaningless exhibition NFL game tonight --while the Giants will play a meaningful road game in Pittsburgh --right at 5 PM PT...and guess what? The 49ers will draw at least 4 times the audience. Simply stated: The NFL is vastly more popular than Major League Baseball. Period. End of story.
--Cannot stand Christine Craft the person--but I do like Christine Craft the talk-show host unless she's talking about Israel in which Craft is the most un-objective, biased and Israel basher this side of Pat Buchannan . Birds of a feather...
--If Chip Franklin was more newsy-talkie, I'd be more inclined to listen to him on KGO but Chip has been hog-tied to discuss trendy BS "topics" taken out of USA Today and the latest Drudge headline.
--I'm already sick and tired of hearing about El Nino.
--KTVU is obviously trying desperately to insert weather lady Rosemary Orozco into a more primetime spot but shifting her all over the various time slots is counterproductive --make up your mind, FOX2.
--I said Brian Copeland is OK and decent enough --as a talk-show host, on race and race relations. I never listen to him when he's doing an interview, say, on politics. Switch the dial. And like other talk hosts, Copeland's incessant, repetitious --"EIGHT-Zero-Eight Zero-Eight -Zero" babble is too much to take. He does it every five minutes.
--Hey, KQED: Bring back "Newsroom." I dare you.
--If the Chronicle continues to LOSE
--Rumor mill: CBS Radio is about to unleash a BIG round of layoffs--which will only further fuel the idea of them being swallowed up by Cumulus. I can't even begin to fathom.
--Yeah, Brian Hackney looked weird Saturday night.
