Sal Castaneda --KTVU's mega-jovial, peripatetic traffic anchor and transportation reporter, is a popular man. In addition to his duties, the Bay Area native gets the most picture requests, personal appearance requests and get this? Castaneda is the sixth highest-paid personality at the station! Sure, $250K a year isn't chopped liver, especially in the Bay Area, but given Sal's hero-worship status at, uh, Fox2, he deserves more coin. Which apparently is foreign territory at 2 Jack London Square.
Ask these guys.
Then there's this news: star reporter and occasional anchor, Allie Rasmus is about to be besieged by at least two local stations (think west of 2) and one prominent cabler seeking a young, smart, and vibrant TV News personality. Rasmus brings a ton of fresh air to a market that as of late smells to high heaven. Allie? You GO Girl!
