Marzullo Blues at KGO-TV; Wants More 'Prominent' Role; Mgt: 'Just Another Pretty Face'; 900 Front Reality; Monday Starter

 KATIE MARZULLO is not having such a swell holiday season. Personally and professional. The KGO-TV (ABC7) reporter/anchor is positively in the dumps.

Marzullo, who took a leave in October to care for her ailing father is quite peeved that KGO essentially sent her to the wood shed --instead of playing a prominent role, even on the weekend, she's just another street side correspondent.

Marzullo is unhappy with her diminishing position at 900 Front. At one point not too long ago she assumed that she would be given a more prominent position on ABC7's various platforms.

Said a longtime KGO staffer: "She thought she was a 'star--bigtime --they (management) came to the conclusion that she (Katie) was just another pretty face. Not ready for primetime; small market girl."

I've said repeatedly here that while I believe Marzullo is a good anchor, I don't think she's anything special. That's a blunt assessment but that's why you come here.

On the other hand, I can sympathize with Marzullo's frustration with what appears to be a major communications issue at KGO. Nobody seems to be in charge. Staffers get informed of personnel moves via outside outlets (like 415 Media).

Maybe the ND, Countess Watkowski should have another staff meeting and quit asking people "who's leaking news to 'Lieberman?"

Nobody you know, anyway, Trixie.

    And yet, when we give you a blunt assessment, we're either blocked on twitter or our comments are censored. Could you possibly be a bigger hypocrite?

    1. Agree 100%.
      RL's Failure to publish dissenting opinions is disappointing to say the least.

  2. I'd rather look at her than any of these ethnic bimbos any day of the week.

    1. Umad bro? You just can't take the fact that "ethnics" work harder than any other race. What's the matter? Did an "ethnic" take your job Van Iceberg Lettuce? You live in fear of the supreme ethnic race?

    2. How hard the "ethnic bimbos" work has nothing to do with their physical appearance.
      Either you're hot or you're not, and some of these EB's are not.
      No madbros here. Just keepin' it real.

    3. A lot of viewers prefer 'ethnic bimbos' as opposed to boring run of the mill 'bimbos' of the caucasion persuation. Too bad bitter old racist farts like you are too obtuse to realize it.

    4. I know she's from the area but her career aspirations might better be served in another market. Think Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, etc. Yes, it snows there. Put on a coat.

      Given that she's so young, Columbus might be a perfect fit. She should consider it.

  3. Her agent didn't care that's for sure.

  4. There was that memo people seem to forget about sent to staff: Be sure and consult Lieberman's blog and your inboxes for important communications to personnel.

  5. People aren't that special in this business and everyone is replaceable. Many forget that and think they're god's gift to TV. Get over yourselves!

  6. I have to agree with you and KGO management. She never seemed to have much of an "on air" personality.

  7. If she's not happy at KGO maybe it's time for her to step across the hall, visit the dark side, and see what KRON has to offer. That would probably make any role at KGO seem like heaven.

  8. When l saw Marzulo on earlier this year on weekends, I thought Kira Klapper was better. Then Kira left and is now a fill in anchor on KNTV. She is doing Saturday and mornings this week on KNTV.
    IMO...Katie needs a tan or something. ... looks too conservative (not hip enough)..

  9. Iceberg--
    I'd rather look at the BA's "Ethnic Bimbos"...than the Blonde Aryan Princess at Faux News.

  11. BTW, do you know who is really underrated as a reporter and a fill in anchor? Noelle Walker.
