Rosemary Orozco over at KTVU will get a raise; a modest raise, just not the raise she was hoping for; welcome to the Fox2 business model, Rosy!
*KCBS's idea to have fill-in guests while John Madden recuperates: while fine in theory, lousy in results.
Steve Mariucci, "Mooch" as the folks call him, was a certifiable dud Wednesday morning. It was artificial radio.
See, guys, Madden is the ticket. It's why nobody goes to see the opening act for a Springsteen show.
*Another surly, overrated hack at KTVU: Mike Mibach.
*Karna Small--Channel 7 News Scene weather girl circa 1972: bet you didn't think she could write backwards.
*Mark Ibanez: a picture is worth a thousand words...or maybe more.
*The real, close-up video of the cops shooting that guy with the knife was being offered to newsrooms by the guy who filmed --problem is, his asking price was way over what the Teevees were willing to pay. Thanks Internet.
*The department of Lost in Translation: "Drex Show" --again, we call it the dreck show.
*Jason Middleton: your voice sucks too.
*They're still gossiping about what Ronnnnnnnnnnnnn did at the Christmas party. Another Bay Area morning man saw it.
*Middleton is a legend: just ask him.
*Biggest winner of the CNN GOP debate: Wolf Blitzer. Even the right-wing rags were impressed.
*More bloated than Star Wars: Jan Wahl. May the yenta be with you.
