TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
Hi Rich, not to bring up a bad topic, but what has Bernie Ward been up to?
I believe Bernie is attending to his family and doing a lot of writing.
Any changes coming at 95.7 the game now that the new boss has settled in?
Yeah, the morning show is about to be replaced --the latest, by the end of the year. Thank God.
The new worst show on radio: JV and Elvis on 910? They make Gil Grotesque sound like a hall of famer..
I have enough torture in my life to listen to those morons.
Do you see KFOG, KSAN, or KSJO (the latter being a "NASH" station) flipping formats soon due to poor ratings &/or Cumulus' struggles?
This is worthy of a radio version of "Groundhog Day" --what else is new?
Is Rebecca Corral on vacation, or is her absence something more"
Rebecca is off and taking time she's been allotted --nothing sinister that I know of. Yet.
How's the sharing arrangement working for KRON and KGO? Any issues or fireworks?
Nothing yet. I don't expect any issues to appear either because clearly one station is ahead of the other and we all know which one that is.
Will the Japanese News women who suffered from an illness be returning?Yoshimura ?
No, and she's American of Japanese ancestry by the way... and her name is Ishimaru too.
Why are leftists so much angrier than those on the far right? Yes, I know Rush Limbaugh is an ass, but most of the vitriol on the right is nothing like what one reads on comment boards by folks professing their liberal "Diverse" ways. Including what one sometimes reads here. And may well follow this comment should it make it up online.
How many of the big on-air names do you think will be let go of All-News? And do you think NB will disappear by the start of the New Year?
Too many to count.No idea on NB.
When will Elizabeth Wenger be back at KPIX morning show?
When her maternity leave is up and she's ready to do the Macarena.
What really happened 2 J T Scott on knbr?.it seems the handicap parker is happy she is gone...
He is...her Pac-12 work made it possible for a convenient get-away from the 9-12 mess. Frankly, both are nauseating --HER and HIM together.
Last week, a caller asked why Kate Scott was gone and Gary answered very diplomatically, that it was her Pac 12 work and the job she does at KNBR is essentially for someone starting out in the business and shouldn't be considered a long-term gig for anybody.
Rich, what happened with Michelle Apon at KRON? She seems to have left. She was on a 3-week vacation to Europe, but she is back home but not at KRON. Also, has anyone ever heard what really happened with the Erica Kato firing at KRON? Finally, you have stated twice over the past year, that Cheryl Jennings and Spencer Christian were to be going. They were supposed to be gone by the end of 2014, but now a year later, they are still here. You said Cheryl was going to the weekends doing old-people stuff, but she is still there anchoring the 11am and evening news. The so-called "pretty anchors" recently hired by KGO, don't seem to be doing what you said they were going to do either, which was, for the dude to be anchoring the morning show, and the zouves chick to be doing the afternoon show. Neither seems to have happened on a permanent basis. Eric Thomas and Kristen Sze seem to be getting along fine, despite what you always say, and they are still anchoring their collective hearts out every morning together. So are you slipping, Rich? Thanks! 8-)
I, too, am curious about the Kato firing. Also, she had been doing weekend reporting on KCBS about a month ago but seems to have disappeared from that as well. Any follow up would be appreciated, Rich.
