Besides which, I was on assignment.
*Dear Brian Copeland. You're destined to become the next Steve Urkel!
*Speaking of Copeland: Fire and Ice: Copeland and Christine Craft. Lots of history there.
*KGO Radio has No Program Director, no General Manger, no News Director: sort of a radio hamburger helper.
*Meanwhile, over at KTVU, the working masses are beginning to experience the real FOX. As in execs that have not a clue about the Bay Area but continue to inject very LA-like essence into the operation which is being received like, oh say, Mel Gibson emceeing a bar-mitzvah.
*By the way, Fox has essentially re-branded all its O and O's (owned and operated stations)--in case you haven't seen KTVU's website, here's the new look. Just a lovely mayonnaise look.
*Some schmuck KRON sports sub on Sunday night said the auto racer that was hit with flying debris from another race car was "in a coma." Even those the wire services had already pronounced the driver dead five hours earlier. KRON isn't hamburger helper--more like, chipped beef.
*KQED: Too many Peters popping Pollys. The money must just be pouring in.
*BREAKING NEWS! Copeland will be discussing race today--doesn't matter the subject. It's all black and white.
*OK, to be perfectly blunt and clear: No, I'm not a Brian Hackney fan. The man obviously knows his weather. That's good. It's just that he looks like a guy that thinks the whole world revolves around him and that's not quite accurate, Dennis O'Donnell is the most important person on the planet.
*Question: Why does Brian Copeland like the Oakland Raiders? Because their colors are Silver and Black!
*KRON's news set looks like the appliance department on the 5th floor of the Macys store in Union Square.
*As long as were talking about the mess at KPIX it should be noted that Juliette Goodrich is being WASTED --completely wasted on the weekend. Goodrich, who can be a load but a good load, should be front and center, Monday through Friday...somewhere. They.just.don't.listen.
*Does anyone actually read Chuck Nevius anymore?
*SF Gate, 2015: Pictures of mansions and food. News? Why bother.
*Dear Lisa Argen: I would like to read poetry to you and sip a few Coronas. I'll dress up.
*Leah Garchick: yenta stenographer --and the Chronicle wonders why nobody read the paper.
*Today on the Gil Gross Show, Gil will talk to himself about the benefits of cryonics.
