Hey, KGO-TV Ace Reporter, Dan Noyes, It's About Time To Quiz Gavin Newsom; The New SF Magazine Owned By The Ex-Cumulus Dickey Dicks; I Miss Sara Sidner; Sal Castaneda 400,000 Reasons To Be Thankful; No Farting In The 'Ronn Owens Broadcast Studio'; Tuesday 415 Media Mosh Pit

 I WOULD LOVE to see another Dan Noyes--Gavin Newsom interview on KGO-TV (ABC7) So much to ask, right Dan-o?

*I just received the new SF Magazine print edition (with Nancy Pelosi on the cover) Lots of gloss and pretty pictures of pretty people at pretty SF locales. More of a bathroom publication --I knew I would really hate something about this outfit when a friend informed me the good old Dickey brothers owned the conglomerate that owns the magazine. Here's the lowdown-- shit, there goes the magazine now.

*Ronnnnnnnnnn, Gavin and Chef Ryan Scott at the Balboa: barf bags on the house.

*Jason Middleton --busy guy, tech/business editor for KGO Radio and Ronn Owens designated bitch.

*You current KRONvicts are in for a surprise come the beginning of the month and it ain't a free tuna melt from Grumpy's.

*Memo to the KGO Morning News crew: No farting in the "Ronn Owens Studio" otherwise you get bitch-slapped by Chris Hernandez.

*It's about time for another baby launch by one of the few remaining KPIX anchors.

*So, check this out: KTVU secretary runs over to the newsroom to tell assignment editor about a tip from a viewer who called in to inform station of some crime story in Walnut Creek. The AE essentially tells the woman to get lost, way to hire those "team players", Fox.



*God, do I miss the incredible Sara Sidner, late of KTVU and now reporting for CNN.

*You know, it wouldn't be the worst idea ever for a weatherman or woman to just go the hell outside and see the weather as you're issuing a forecast --imagine that, actual weather, it's raining outside!

*Drew Tuma: uh, whatever.

*I agree with a reader: KGO has 5! weather anchors? Five?! I wonder if Disney is aware of this.

*The -uber-bond at KGO that consists of Tracey Watkowski, ND and veteran reporter, Wayne Freedman has cooled considerably, I'm told by one of my insiders who knows where all the bodies are buried.

Maria Medina? OK, not bad.



*Sorry, but Cristina Rendon, no comparison.



*Star 101.3 FM: all the serenity of a Fremont Burger King.

*Speaking of a gruesome twosome: the KTVU goosey-twosey:



*Kind of makes you want to fart in the Ronn Owens broadcast studio.


*Yeah, I've gone to the gutter today and you're still reading this shit so there's some symmetry here, go figure.

*Sal Castaneda is about to become one happy SOB: there's about 400,000 reasons why.

  2. What's wrong with Lisa Argen? She's nice to wake up to on weekend mornings. Sure beats looking at Frances Dingalinglasan.

    Sal Castinets gets 400 large for looking at video monitors and talking to people in helicopters? Where can I sign up for this gig?

    The next time someone has gas in Ronn Lowenstein's studio, just tell 'em that it's no different than the hot air he expounds on the air.

    1. Or the hot air that fills the room when 34C is broadcasting

    2. Sal has always reminded me of the weather guy in Anchorman. Both have that deer in the headlights look.

  3. With regards to Star 101.3 and it sounding like a "Fremont Burger King"--I agree. Way too much teenager music.

    With regards to Sal, is he really worth $400, 000????

  5. Maybe there's a strategic reason for KGO having 5 weather anchors. It does make it easy to adjust if someone leaves and, more importantly, it reduces the value of any individual weather anchor when salary negotiation time comes around. Maybe on a long-term basis is cheaper to have 4 or 5 then 2, or 3, since the average salary could be much lower. You could get 5 @ $150K for the same expense as 3 @ $250K and those 5 know they're each disposable, or they know the alternative is that they become Kronvicts.

    1. Especially since Spencer Christian looks like he could be on the verge of retirement any time now.

  7. I still count six weather people at KGO if you include Ms. Dinglausen (sp?) who fills in on occasion.

    If you want "serenity" in your radio fare, you probably should be listening to KFAX.

  11. Sara Sidner... yeah... Hella fine.

  12. Gavin looks absolutely thrashed in that photo. Plus I highly doubt he really likes girls.

    1. Gavin is a politician. He likes men and women equally

  13. $400k to report on traffic? Great work is you can get it

  14. Ditto regarding Sara Sidner. The Cumulus-owned magazine that is San Francisco's southern counterpart, "Angeleno," went the same route. And in Los Angeles the sleekly dressed, tressed and cleavage-blessed morning traffic reporters would love a deal like Sal's.

  15. Such sad news about Sal Castaneda. That money could be better spent improving the KTVU news product.
