MID-DAY Lunch File
*CBS Execs back in NY will make a visit to SF and inquire about KPIX's plan. They'll meet at the Hotel Vitale --right near 855 Battery. Funny, I was thinking PIX doesn't have a plan. Maybe the suits from Black Rock will make headway with Dandy Dan and mysterious Bruno.
*Those obnoxious Yellow Pages radio ads should be annexed to Siberia or KGO Radio.
*If Cumulus were actually able to buy CBS Radio please call God and ask if the world is coming to an end.
*A first? I went last night to have dinner at Tadich and was told "we're out of bread." Huh? Granted, it was near closing time but how can a restaurant like this one run out of bread? I mean, I've heard just about everything. By the way, just a few seconds later after my open-eyes befuddlement, bread was delivered to my counter. Amen.
*OK, if Paul Deanno seriously wants an anchor chair, he's got it but I hear he's really into the weather business. And good for Paul, one of the few decent professionals at PIX.
*KTVU newsroom grippers are at it again only they should know you don't mess around with FOX.
*Attention KGO Radio job applicants: KCBS is looking for a street side reporter. All interested stand in line and buy Jack Swanson a good bottle of scotch. Or a six pack of craft beer. That'll get you a return call.
*I wouldn't be surprised if Ronn Owens were to return to KGO in late September; as stated before here, I wish him and family all the best.
*Pat Thurston is perfect where she is right now.
*I don't know whatever happened to super Investigative Reporter, Spencer Michael, but I sure do wish he come back to KQED.
