KTVU Eases In Rosemary Orozco And Bill Martin Can't Be Happy; Ronnnnnn Sounds Crappy On KGO; Radnich Tip Program; Kate Scott Is Shitty (Again); John Lund Is Embarrassing; Take-A-Shot; Thursday Scrambled Eggs
THURSDAY SCRAMBLED EGGS
*KTVU higher-ups are slowly easing in Rosemary Orozco to primary weather anchor --her weeknight predominance is no accident. The only person who is upset is Bill Martin, who unfortunately doesn't look like Orozco.
*You haven't seen Katie Marzullo on KGO because Marzullo has taken a leave to care for her ailing father.
*Saying Ronn Owens sounds horrible on the air is not being insensitive regarding his ongoing ailment. Owens said repeatedly he didn't want sympathy. So speaking truthful about how he sounds is just that, nothing else.
*That said, Owens interview with political wonk, David Brock, was old-style Ronn. Very good. For a change.
*John Rothmann got screwed by the IHeart assholes but that's nothing new.
*Gary Radnich took his Bentley for some maintenance --about $3500 worth of work. Gave the mechanic an orange soda for a tip. Putz.
*Every sports anchor in this city hates Raddy--how do I know? I just know. Especially one who was giving a speech one night when Raddy ragged him about the suit trade out. Clue? There's only one 2.
*If Kate Scott were 40, had a few pimples and was heterosexual, she'd be working at Nordstorm. Instead, she labors at KNBR, and says nothing, is nothing, gets coddled by the wife-cheater and betting fool.
*Scott is to sports acumen is Mel Gibson is to bar-mitzvahs.
*Radnich's digital enabler at KRON is once again snitching on his co-workers. Watch your back, KRONvicts.
*Early opinion of Reggie Aqui at KGO: you get what you pay for.
*Jenna Lane new hire at KCBS: Lane is good but more women reporters at KCBS. Who do they think they are? KTVU?
*In fact, KTVU, KGO Radio and KCBS have enough women to open a N.O.W. office.
*I love women. I'm just picky. That's why I'm dating Stephanie Powers.
*KNBR 9-10 AM: 41 minutes of commercial spots and "updates." Better than listening to the wife cheater and his radio son.
*If you think I'm hard on KGO Radio and Cumulus, go on-line and listen to what Don Imus had to say about the cloud company.
*Overrated: Melanie Woodrow.
*Underrated: Peggy Bunker.
*Rusty Simmons: brand diminished. But the Chronicle has become irrelevant so life goes on.
*If Simmons gets 86ed and I tend to doubt it, he could go work at KTVU and talk like a pirate.
*Anymore KPIX divorces I should be aware of?
*Speaking of PIX: the NY diva anchor who can't stop tweeting and touching her hair has begun telling her friends she wants back to NY. Gees, I wonder why.
*CBS Radio layoffs: In two weeks, heads will roll..including some at KCBS. See 'yall at Grumpy's.
*Schmuck X 10: The obnoxious and hideous John Lund. Afternoon delight? Yeah, if you enjoy having anal warts.
*How to become KCBS weather woman in the morning: giggle a lot, do breathless reports, and act like some drunk 40-something chick that just consumed her 4th margarita in an hour at the Old Ship.
*Brian Hackney: If you were in Bakersfield you'd be awesome.
*Michael Krasny: Angie Coiro was right: you're kind of an asshole. She actually didn't say it, Mikey, I did.
*Erica Kato: on second thought, maybe KRON was right.
*Leah Garchik and Jan Wahl: I'd rather have eternal root canal.
*Mike Sugerman and Doug Sovern: pompous never had a better definition. I'd rather have a case of severe diarrhea for a week than listen to these two morons.
