*I'm happy they play the Duane Kuiper solar ads on local TV and radio because I haven't seen or heard one for the past five minutes.
*Mark Ibanez used to be one of my favorite sports anchors --but the FOX Invasion of the Body Snatchers on KTVU has taken hold of Ibanez' conscience. That's too bad. And "That's The Sporting Life."
*Damon Bruce seems to be ticked that someone came out and exposed Ann Killion as the person who blackballed Bruce from Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area.
Sorry, Damon, it's an item.
*Once again, the fraudulent players on KTVU Weekend MO2 injected fake happy talk on the screen Sunday. It was pathetic and sappy, the usual formula. Claudine Wong is a fake. So too, Rosemary Orozco --although a beautiful fake, but a fake nonetheless. Maybe they should all dress like and speak like a pirate. They're good at that.
*KTVU Management: Nixonian 2015.
*More Damon Bruce: When you repeatedly tell people how great you are you're not that great. Remember Damon, brevity is the soul of wit.
*KGO-TV is planning to design a "radically"-new morning news show --it will debut sometime later this year. I don't know the exact format but I'm told it will involve several new "intensity"-shots, including real-time traffic --I can hardly wait but give KGO credit for trying something new.
*When TV/Radio reporters in this town take to Facebook to bemoan getting ripped by the 415 Media blogger it's both telling and humbling for me. And my oh my, the comments uttered by the brave miscreants. Didn't know I have such a fan club. By the way, the post has subsequently been deleted. What a coincidence.
*More Killion: She's been sending out resumes to the various pundit shows like ESPN and Fox Sports so that should tell you about the state of the Chronicle --just ask Carla Marinucci and Henry Lee.
*You want irony personified? Gary Radnich talks endlessly about the importance of family and kids--then why did Raddy habitually cheat on his first wife?
*Very soon one day the BIGGEST and BADEST thing that hit Bay Area media will become public and you will read it here, first. No clues. Yet. But trust me, you'll be shocked.
*Julie Haener will probably be back sometime in November.
*Yo, Joe Vasquez of KPIX? If you're gonna take a cheap shot, then tell it to my face.
*You too, Doug Sovern.
*More PIX: Christin Ayers spent a better part of three minutes on a segment involving a one-on-one with some drifter who wants to be president of the US. It was beyond god-awful and quite comical, unintentionally too. The bit was on the "NightBeat" so no one was watching. Maybe that was the intent.
