SUNDAY SCRAMBLED EGGS
A sea of sereneness at KNTV (NBC Bay Area) but beneath the tranquility lays an underbelly of resentment from staff over the treatment of THAT GUY and THAT GIRL ---the grippers say favoritism is running amuck --oh, she and he are quite buddies --he often takes her to the San Jose Fairmont bar after the 11 PM news and ...well, figure out the rest, kissy poo.
--Meanwhile, up the 101 at 900 Front, KGO-TV personnel are still simmering with inter-office buzz--not the kind of coffee buzz you might be thinking--staff is still mulling the coming change of scenery --the human form--come the beginning of September when the ABC7 halls will be infused with hot people anchors from Ell-Lay and San Diego courtesy a now under-fire GM who likes to wear 18-carat gold chains.
--If KPIX's Christin Ayers wants the CNN job, it's hers.
--Keba Arnold, KTVU, six weeks in: meh.
--Speaking of KTVU: four! sports anchors? Jesus Christ, they must be serious.
--Now beyond the annoyance level approaching shriek status: Veronica De La Cruz. (This is why men become irrational) GAME OFFFFFF!
*Gasia Mikaelian: I still don't get it.
* Heather Holmes: See above.
*And I'm talking about overall package--not looks necessarily --reading off the teleprompter; asking legitimate questions; looking like a capable anchor entails more than just physical assets.
*The forced chatter that KTVU--or more like Fox2 has employed --is beginning to really sully up the affair at 2 Jack London Square. Frank Somerville, talk to the ND and tell her it sounds like the shits and I'm being kind.
*Bill Martin: what the hell has happened to you? You're a nice guy, Bill, but your over-pontifications about "the marine layer" and shit like that are hurting your brand if that makes any sense.
*If Liz Cook actually just reads her copy and avoids idle chit-chat she's fine. She's not the only person in the business who got help from daddy.
*Ronn Owens: delighted that you made it out of brain surgery and best wishes for you and Jan and family.
*KRON: For the 877th time, your damn cameras are too close! For crying out loud get a fucking clue, morons!
*Wait a minute, it's KRON.
*Speaking of KRON, some jerks put a bounty on Stanley Robert's head which I don't think is funny in this world we live in but apparently the "People Behaving Badly" guy does, sorry, Stan.
*Paul Deanno would make a good anchor over at PIX but the people at PIX who run the show are clueless.
*Bruno Cohen: Think of the Janet Jackson song, "What have you done for me lately."
*Juliette Goodrich: wasted talent on weekend --should be Monday-Friday --but that GAME ON chick with the flaming eyebrows and ditsy hairdo is in the way.
*Roberta Gonzales: Way too chirpy lately, maybe you should read the room every now and then while you're at the gym.
*Leyla Gulen at KGO has a boyfriend --sorry fellas. But everything's negotiable.
*Laura Anthony: reminds me of a school teacher from Brisbane.
*Scott Rates: KRON reporter network ready --pretty underrated too.
*The most powerful person at KGO Radio: News hound John Lobertini...for better or worse. When the Cumulus suits come to town, they meet with him first. Why? You got me.
*If I were to have an affair I would start with Cheryl Hurd.
*Most Bay Area women reporters--TV and radio--have a thing for me (could you blame 'em?)
