The Girl Fights at KPIX over who gets to sit next to the male anchors in primetime have returned to 855 Battery --Again! Seems High Priestess, Veronica De La Cruz (while she's not working on her hair every 5 minutes) is once again demanding more of her already allotted time because, in her opinion, "everyone else pretty much sucks here!"--She has a point.
Frankly, if it were me, I'd clean out the whole building and start over. Cleanse the studios. Remodel the newsroom. The place stinks to high heaven. Smells like rotten eggs. Like a giant skunk got lobotomized.
Bruno? You still work there? Do something. Anything. Or are you just banking on those 7 million Super Bowl ads. And Dan? You left KRON years ago and THIS is what you have accomplished. OMG! Seriously.
Ladies: take a cure from me. It's not worth a fight. I'd just stay positioned and wait until the inevitable personnel shakeups --they're coming.
*Speaking of KRON, the digital editor (whatever the hell that means) who washes Radnich's car, has drawn the attention of a news editor on Twitter. Seems un-super Mario is slightly infatuated with me. Figures. Working at KRON is sort of a drag, especially when you're having to attend to cleaning used Bentleys on a daily basis.
*Heather Holmes is lucky to be at KTVU--she would be a 4th-tier anchor in LA. Wait, she couldn't make it in Ell-Lay.
*Dave Clark is very very Indianapolis which doesn't look so well in the Bay Area. In other words, Happy Talk is not you, Davie.
*John Madden has jumped the shark. Doesn't say much of anything anymore unless it's his bus or bocce ball.
*It's not that I'm overly critical of some of the alleged women reporters here it just seems the Bay Area has an unbelievable amount of shitty female reporters. That's right, I said it! Sue me.
*Tom Vacar was relevant about 20 years ago --coincidentally, the last time he smiled on air--Tom, relax, have a turkey sandwich and a shot --you're a damn TV News reporter, not the male Mother Teresa.
*Another stiff look: David Louie at KGO. (He's still there? Yep he is.)
*I know this is bordering on being sacrilegious but have you heard Ronn Owens lately? Sounds awful. I'm just being honest.
*Who's the genius who told a certain TV station here to begin running promos touting the station's wildfire coverage? Don't tell me Lee Rosenthal has resurfaced. Wonder boy retro, no thanks.
*That morning producer on KGO Radio was accused of falsifying her time card because she included the hours she works from home. All producers do a lot of work from home. Fed up with all the bullshit, she decided to quit.
*Management at KRON to Radnich very clearly: Don't fuck with the new weather broad. Seriously. We're not kidding. Message delivered.
*Hey Pero: I hope digital boy has pictures.
*Michael Krasny: "Today, I will interview Gil Gross' left testicle." And KQED will have a new cd to auction at the pledge break.
*So, Mike, did you send some after-dinner mints to Angie Coiro?
*Doug Sovern of KCBS wants you to know that Doug Sovern is the greatest thing since the invention of gouda cheese.
*In light of all the shit that has happened to the NY Daily News (mass layoffs and red ink) I'm not going to be shocked at what's in the offing for the SF Chronicle.
*If John Lund quit talking about his penis every now and then on 95.7 FM The Game (All Sports) he'd be at least seriously considered for the upcoming KNBR opening but Johnny boy can't help himself. When the ratings tank, talk about ho's and johnsons.
*Their morning show really sucks too --they could put on a rotting corpse and that would get better traction than the goo-fest they called "Flight 95.7"--some flight, the pilots are all drunk.
*Do I seem all warm and fuzzy today?
*Ann Killion: the best example of why feminism has its down points.
*Big week for Ann: she's taking Radnich to the Emeryville Denny's for the all-you-can-eat breakfast.
*Radnich is obsessed with this: "To make it in life, you have to have a family and kids. You have to have responsibility and take care of your wife." Really, Gare? YOU say that?
*BREAKING NEWS! Ray Ratto just ate Tim Kawakami.
*When Jon Miller takes a #2 is all a part of the Post-Game Crap?
*Kate Scott: I heard through the grapevine that they told you to just shut up and well, that's about fine. Don't be put out, Katie, I mean it's not as if you're working at a radio station.
*Actually, and I'm being serious, I like Lee Hammer. Hammer gets it. How do I know? Ask Hammer.
*Killion wants to be more in tune with the hood which might best explain her new NWA collection.
