Someone is Stealing the Toilet Paper at KRON; Why Rasmussen and Pritchett left KTVU; Another Chron Casualty; Brunette Alert: Ronnnnnnn's in Chicago; Sweeps Time; KPIX Goodies; Thursday Goodies

 HERE'S HOW CHEAP KRON IS: someone at 900 Front at the studios of current KRONvicts, is stealing the toilet paper. I would love to get my hands on the memo but Pero's mercenaries can't be that stupid.

*I love my "followers" locally who hide themselves on my Twitter timeline --I guess it's the coward thing to do, but they know I'm right most of the time.

*The new 9-10 AM last hour on the weekday KTVU, "MO2" is so baaaad, so pathetic, it's kind of funny and sad to watch, god FOX did you royally fuck up KTVU, but you did with style.

*Hey, KTVU rank and file: Fox affiliate division made over $200M in new advertising revenue just in the last half quarter alone. Maybe the union and staffers have a reason to be really kvetching.

*Some KNBR air talent (if you can call them that) were ordered to meet the new company SF Cluster minion the other day up north. Off company time. And weren't paid any gas money to travel and meet the latest schlum. Radnich was so pissed off he threatened to rent a Jaguar and head to the Tenderloin.

*A certain big time, married, anchor who is stupping  the hell out of a pretty brunette staffer is no big news unless that twosome are making a ruckus as they usually are at the bar at Kokkari --keep it down, guys.

*Sweeps week is here in local TV News land--KPIX has new, innovative, wacky programs scheduled for their newscasts: "Allen Martin--he's really human!" "Veronica De La Cruz gets her hair cut by Stevie Wonder!" GAME ON!!! "Dennis O' Donnell has a conscience!" GAME ON!" "Vern Glenn isn't really the black Gary Radnich!" GAME ON!! "Bruno Cohen really does have a central nervous system and can actually do his job!" GAME ON!

*More KTVU: Eric Rasmussen and Ken Pritchett were making roughly $150G as reporters --they wanted to be paid in the neighborhood of $200K--FOX offered both about $125G--which is when both told FOX in essence: "Fuck You." You won't see that in the press release or if Ben Fong Torres were writing about TV News.

*More Ben Fong: about time for another story on the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame which amounts to paying for a lunch at Spengers and listening to old radio people talk about their career and not farting out loud.

*Yeah, that EIC at the Chronicle, Audrey Cooper thinks I'm not a real "journalist" because at the Chron to be a real journalist you must be able to place pictures of food and mansions on SFGate.

*Hey Cooper, another star staffer--columnist Jon Carroll, is "retiring" --leaving like flies on your watch --coincidence? Perhaps, you be the judge.

*And we haven't even mentioned the cover-up of the Rusty Simmons mess--apparently Simmons is the fall guy and his sports editor gets his gig back even though editor....(never mind)

*Ronnnnnnnnnnnnnn Owens took his chickie producer to Chicago so he could pick up his HOF award and broadcast a show---Ronnnnnnnnnnnn and brunettes that are not his wife: careful, girl.

*Of course, I'm beyond all of this schmutz, I've been busy dating my current shiksa, Gia LaBouf:



*Any day now the people at Disney who write settlement checks for ABC O and O's will write a pretty fat one for Ms. Heather Ishimaru, formerly of KGO-TV who continues to rehab after a work-related stroke a couple of years back. The ND is not going to like this.

*Kate Scott: "Nothing from nothing means nothing." Unless your fawning Brian Murphy.

*John Lund and Greg Papa talking about penises again on Wednesday. C'mon Greg, the other guy has no other options, but you? Of all people.

*Follow me on Twitter

  1. IBEW can only blame themselves and COX. The contract was not negotiated with FOX...it was with COX. It's solely the fault of IBEW for NOT getting the normal clause in the trade to have the contract recognized by FOX. IBEW fucked up so bad it's beyond stupid. It's a normal clause in any sale where a union contract is involved.
    COX screwed them....not FOX.
    IBEW completely had the head up the asses on this one...IBEW screwed the pooch.

  2. Lieberman is kicking ass AGAIN.

    He hits it all on the head, especially with Benny Fong, better known as the radio station ass-kisser who has a run on the words "I" and "me" in his wet dish rag column of his.

    However, that's what the head bitch at the Chron probably thinks is journalism. Either that, or Benny Fong has some skeletons in his closet about key people at the Chronicle.

    What a shitty media market San Francisco has turned into.

    Rich, I have no problem with toilet paper being stolen at KRON...I'll just shit right outside the front door, pull up my drawers, & walk to my car & go home. Common occurrence at UN Plaza!

    1. UN Plaza must really be a hideous place. I went to their website and under "places to eat", all they had were "food trucks" there every other day from 11AM - 2PM. Sounds like a great place to impress a date.

  5. Gia LaBouf, damn. Joely yesterday, damn. These little segways are cracking me up, love it, Rich. Don't play it out tho, use it sparingly because it's golden.

    As for me, I'm dating Carla Gugino.

  6. Pretty sad considering KRON only gets 1-ply while KGO-TV get nice 2-ply toilet paper.
    Tracy W. sez she will order those stadium size rolls for Pero and Darya if this shit continues.

  7. "...someone at 900 Front at the studios of current KRONvicts, is stealing the toilet paper."

    With an a.m. anchor dressed in skankwear on a routine basis, toilet paper theft is the least of KRON's problems.

    1. Yesterday morning was particularly bad. It seems they've improved the lighting to this viewer's dismay.

  8. Anybody else catch VDLC's phone going off during the 11pm newscast yesterday?

    Related: Anybody else forget to turn off KPIX when their newscast came on?

  9. KRON4....The hotspots are usually about traffic, but today the "real hotspot" was Darya Folsom....wow! I do have one complaint, Darya is causing me to wear out the freeze button on my remote. She makes the rest of them look like "grandmothers." The skankwear post probably came from one of those "grandma" people. I have a couple of bruises on my arm from my girlfriend hitting me, but that's ok. What a woman...no reason to watch any of the other channels....Thanks Darya. Gotta go, here comes my girlfriend. If she sees this I'll end up in the Emergency room at my local hospital.

      Darya can't hold a candle to Julie, Ama, Vicki and Heather. She makes a "grandma" out of none of them, but does, however, make herself the laughing stock of a.m. broadcast.

      Why do you think Fox (cable) is number one. Beautiful, hot, intelligent women all day long and into the night. If Darya held a candle, it would melt extremely fast. The foxes are on Fox, and there is a fox at KRON4. Time to bake some cookies.

  10. It's sad that Greg Papa goes down to moron John Lund's level...

  11. Pero's grunt Sevilla probably has all the toilet paper. He needs it to kiss up to Pero or to clean Radnich's car.

  12. Rich you forgot to mention Ben Fong Torres next most written topic, the glory days at KSAN. Ah yes those lovely 70s.

  13. Concur, weird outfit for Darya this morning. Seemed more appropriate for a dinner cruise than morning news.

    We did laugh as VDLC scrambled to turn off her phone alarm last night. We guessed she meant to set it to wake up at 11:05 this morning but fat fingered the am/pm part.

  14. This toilet paper thing seem like a job 4 the investigating team from channel 11:)

  15. why do people keep letting Papa off the hook? he sits there day after day complicit with it. all he would have to do is to tell the dummy to shut up just one time and it would all stop!

  16. Daaaamn, now THAT's entertainment and well-written!

  17. I don't like the new 2 Investigates. Ross Palombo makes things appear dramatized. Eric was watchable and more objective.

    1. I don't mind Palombo himself, but the editing style that carried the story Wednesday about the roadside fires in SF was beyond irritating, all the dramatic black-and-white fades, quick cuts, etc. If that continues, I'm switching stations.

      Delete
    2. I agree. I was watching Palombo's story about the fires on Caltrans' land near Highway 101 in SF. Annoying binaural beats sound effects were added to increase the drama of the story. It came off as cheesy.

      Delete
    3. Anon at 4:37 and 10:01pm....you will get the annoying sensationalistic crap because that is the marching orders of Fox. Plus Palumbo will do what management ask at a much cheaper price than Prtichett or Rasmussen. Henry Lee will be the partner in crime. Both just happy to be there.

  18. Darya does always talk about how cheap she is!

  19. Ross is everything that is wrong in TV journalism...its all bells and whistles...no content... If Dennis Richmond was around ...he'd smack him around..

  20. I'd listen more to Papa and Lund if they didn't regress into juvenile guy talk so much with their silly bantering about penises and hot chicks. Papa is happily married with five kids so I don't get why he has to stoop to this level. Lund is probably a single guy who simply likes to remind his listeners that he can talk nonsense with the best of them. Lund and his silly, high pitched frat boy laughter really brings the show down when he insists on talking about this nonsense. If I were Papa, I'd bitch-slap him back into line, but Greg doesn't want to rock the boat and I think he gets a thrill out of the 'guilty pleasure' of talking like a frat-boy who's 20.
