KRON's 'PBB' Stanley Roberts Suffers Stroke But Is All Right; Friday Night Lights On Bay Shore Freeway; Miller/Krukow A The Others Meh; Saturday 415 Media Breakfast Items

 Yo, You People Behaving Badly --your tormentor, KRON's Stanley Roberts announced on his Facebook page that he had apparently suffered a stroke. But he's OK --as OK as anyone can be suffering a stroke.

Take it easy, Stan and get some relaxation on the agenda and the heck with the speeders on Fifth St.

*Anyone can have an affair --yes, nobody's business, even if you're a SF TV anchor who should know better than putting your personal info on a credit card to Ashley Madison.

*A certain KGO Radio announcer this (Saturday) morning on the closure of the Bay Shore Freeway: "It's a good thing the 49ers are playing in Denver." Yeah, but the Giants are playing a few miles up the freeway at 1 PM. Might be good to look at your Bay Area sports schedules.

*Speaking of the Bay Shore Freeway PG&E/Power accident, could you have imagined if that had happened at commute time?

*Early on, I knew something was weird watching the Giants game Friday night when all of a sudden the scoreboard went kaput and the players looked to the skies: Friday Night Lights.

*Where was Journey Friday night when we needed them? When the lights go down in the citay.

*That loudmouth reporter who tried to pick up the hot brunette at Grumpy's Thursday night should know better. His girlfriend was at the bar only a few feet away sipping her 3rd Corona --fortunately, there was no lime in the bottle.

*The conspiracy nuts are out in full force: How did that crazy guy know the TV gal and her cameraman would be at a live shot at 6: 45 in the morning? Uh, he worked at the station--seems he probably knew how to call the Assignment desk and inquire about certain business.

*As I write this it's spritzing outside and feels like 72. Welcome to San Francisco, New York in the late summer.

*I'm clinically depressed but operational which means I can deal with all the shit --for now.

*Damon Bruce, of 95.7 FM 'The Game' once again went off on the SF Bay Area market. "This is such a soft sports market." Damon, I've been saying that for years and everyone said I was a jerk. Welcome to the club. Free brisket for Damon.

*If you place pineapple on a pizza you should be locked in a room and forced to listen to the KNBR Morning Show.

*Question: If you're in the bathroom doing your business and working Twitter, would it be that you're twooping?

*Vester Flanagan --eerily, the makeup of a 21st century Rupert Pupkin. Sort of.

*Jennifer Hodges, late of KGO Radio, was swooped up by King Swanson and is now tonsiling in the South Bay for KCBS.

*Miller and Krukow--on NBC Bay Area--now that's A-Rate. The two other guys? Meh. Perfect for cable.

*A perfect Saturday: Breakfast at Miller's East Coast Deli listening to KCSM.

*Follow me on Twitter

      I used to think that, till I actually tried it.

  2. Here's hoping that Stanley Roberts got to a hospital in time to get the "Clot" busting drug TPA.

  3. "The conspiracy nuts are out in full force: How did that crazy guy know the TV gal and her cameraman would be at a live shot at 6: 45 in the morning?"

    -I'm sure they teased their location throughout the morning, giving him ample time to carry out his sick plan.

    "If you place pineapple on a pizza you should be locked in a room and forced to listen to the KNBR Morning Show."

    -Worse would be forced to listen to the dreadful "Flight 957"

    ...Grumpy's is a shithole, but it works...Ever notice how much of a cesspool the SFGate comments section is? These people walk among us, yikes...If only it were 15 degrees cooler and football was on...Meet you at the deli. First latte is on me.

    1. I'm not holding to a conspiracy theory but Flanagan was a former employee that left the station on very bad terms.
      So some anonymous caller phones the assignment desk asking where that crew will be at a certain time, and they are more than happy spill that info? There has been a trend of newscrews getting robbed across the country the last few years. I don't buy that one.
      And I doubt they teased that story. They tease compelling, interesting stories, not dull ones.
      " Today we'll be discussing the Chamber of Commerce with a frumpy middle-aged woman"
      My guess is that Flanagan had a sympathetic friend at the station who tipped him off. He was a VICTIM, remember. So no matter how much a POS he was to get himself fired, there was likely some wimpy, stupid white dude at that station who felt sorry for him.
      By the way Rich, you still have one of the victims listed as "Adam West" in a post from a few days ago.

    2. How about just following the truck out.

  4. Hmph...figures that Swanson likes to keep all his little tards together...look at how he got Kevin Tardnich to work with his wife Kim Scott-Wonderfuck.

  5. I'm not impressed when Rich Lieberman becomes superficially concerned about someone's illness after repeatedly ripping the poor guy to shreds over the years. Enough phony sincerity, no one's buying it.

  6. I wonder how well Rich Lieberman's anti-pineapple pizza would sit with SF Superpizzaman Tony Gemignani.

  7. God forgive me, as a devout Catholic, but I hope Mr. Roberts becomes comfortably mute, and begins writing books for a living.

  8. When is the Ted Robinson KNBR problem going to get covered here? Ann Killion and Tim Kawakami tweeted a link the interview he did with Larry Krueger where he spews ridiculous nonsense about African Americans males and domestic violence. Ted should at least offer up an apology. The 49ers are aware of the issue and so is KNBR. It's going to interesting come Monday

  9. Bruce is an absolute fraud; total phony. He was licking Bean's boots the other day; his self perception as an intrepid, hard hitting radio host is laughable. Romo should have kicked his ass.

  10. No worries about Christine having an affair it would require a willing partner. Flip side of the Sacto "legend" is Kristine Hansen who was rumored to have had an affair with Bill Walsh.

    1. Around twenty years ago or so, when I worked close to Sierra College, no less of an authority, than the "lunch room lady" at Sierra, confirmed the Walsh/Hansen affair was real.

    2. I'm the one who wouldn't have an affair with a married man. It's just not smart, no matter how alluring.

  11. According to the news director they had a 510am hit from the same location. Stated during press conference.

  12. Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery, Stan.

  13. Was surprised to hear Money Matters at 8am Saturday on KGO. And Kim Komando at 9. Looks like they've cut that news block down to just 3 hours on Saturdays.

  14. " ...was swooped up by King Swanson."

    The man who built KGO into a powerhouse just keeps on plugging away. The remnants of KGO reflect his absence - IMHO.

  15. John Hamilton has begun opening his travel program with a taped loop of him laughing raucously. I wish he would remove it, because it sounds scary and annoying. The tone is not terribly conducive to making me get away plans.
    Just let "Heidi" and the German girls sing "Good Morning San Francisco". now that is both charming and classy, something rarely seen today. Don't "eff" with it!

  16. Hey Rich, I work for Cumulus and have heard through my 'very reliable sources' within the front office here that the Atlanta Corporate folks plan on eliminating a bunch of jobs in their SF cluster by the end of the year. Not at all surprised to hear this and that's why we're all scrambling right now, looking for other jobs in the market! Corporate weasels and pigs!
