The 'World According to Gary' on KRON Morning Is Perfectly Dreadful TV But Oh, What The Hell



Anybody that actually watches the entire KRON morning segment, "World According to Gary" (Radnich) should have their head examined. Me, your fearless correspondent, has to for purely professional reasons so I can provide you unbiased commentary.

So I watched Tuesday morning and in between the gushing and golly-gees by Countess Darya, KRON's AM marquee event, devoted to the horny male society of Emeryville, was perfectly dreadful and not so amusing.

For one, Dar's male counterpoint, Gary Radnich, he who refers to his KRON gig as "my 'Buster Brown" job, was literally awoken by Dar's phone call. "You're my alarm clock, Darya!," admitted Raddy who sounded like he was still in bed and should not have been bothered with some dimwitted TV bit. Wait a minute, Raddy was still in bed. This is supposed to be funny. This, along with viewing Darya's fake globes, is supposed to be the feature; the hook in drawing in viewers; remember people don't watch KRON to get real, actual news.

I'm not going to dwell on the conversation the gruesome twosome had; after all, it was mostly nothing relevant and frankly amounted to being water-boarded. Radnich does it because he has to and the money is OK to pay for the overhead. Darya is required to mug for the camera in hopes of maintaining relevance and her boyfriend's acceptance. It's a tough world out there, especially Gary's world.

  2. Funny, how much you hate Gary, Darya and Kron, yet you continue watching them. It is a schtick, you should know better. No one watches that segment for breaking news. It is a comedy bit, better than watching the same old boring news

  3. It's terrible for various reasons, some of which Rich mentioned, and I've mentioned on this blog before. It's Darya trying to act like one of the guys pretending she follows sports, when it's transparent, she had some assistant look on the Chron's Sporting Green or deadspin.com the morning before the feature and brief her on it. Radnich's disinterest or ignorance of the topic she brings up is the best part. No fault of his, she brings up topics that are peripherally interesting at best. On his KNBR show, he sometimes mentions the feature, but never mentions Darya by name, but with an offhand reference to some TV morning woman, or other references just as patronizing. The combination of Darya's chummy excitement and Gary's boredom is both morbidly beautiful and tragically awful.

  5. Just think if Darya and Gary had a kid.

    I think I just threw up in my mouth a bit.

  6. Having never watched this program, I never thought any broadcast could be more wretched and banal than Kim Komando's radio show. But I could be wrong.

  8. Fatnich continues to sink his head deep into the Wonder Bra Bitch and her fake jugs. Fatnich is just hanging around collecting a check. He just continues to fake it every damn day. What a loser. Fatnich and WBB are a perfect pair. They deserve each other.

  9. Mike Anthony is the new PD for Cumulus Media's KGO 810 and KSFO 560 in San Francisco. Anthony was general manager of Empire Broadcasting's KLIV in San Jose. Prior to that, he was SVP, programming for Mapleton Communications in Monterey, CA, where he oversaw programming for 41 radio stations.

    1. My Good Sir: With Anthony's Mapleton KPIG "programming success" partnered with the voice of KGO transmitting up and down the west coast of North America, parts of Canada, parts of Mexico, the clear-channel solution to ratings woes is undoubtedly to simulcast KPIG by day and go 'live & local' news-talk by night with Rothman/Taliafaro at the helm during the week and Thurston/Wattenburg steering the ship over the weekend. Until internet car/home radios become affordable, pairing KPIG'S unique programming with the excellence of Rothman/Taliafaro would be a powerful accessible 50,000 watt adventure!

  10. The Darya and Gary segment is so old and stale. I cannot believe anyone watches. Darya is the worst excuse for an news anchor I have ever seen. The rest of the newscast is not half bad. If they replace loud mouthed Darya with Anny Hong they would have a decent show. Anny is way more appealing and intelligent. Nothing worse than waking up to fake boobs and then having the banshee they are attached to start screaming at the camera.

    1. Totally agree with the Anny Hong suggestion. She's good and professional and just the opposite of Darya as @3:44 writes. She makes each newscast seem like she's auditioning for a spot on The View panel.

  11. Funny thing is...this segment originated during day the pre Skype days. Gary is a strong presence and adds some personality to the show. I can see why they have it. Why not add Skype to enhance the segment? Should be an easy thing to do.

    1. How much did Radnich pay you to say this? "Strong presence"? Is that from morning breath? Who wants to see his fat and ugly morning ass? Maybe you clean his Bentley and wash his feet, too. Fan Boy.

    2. @3:51, surely you jest. Having to look at Darya is bad enough. Remember, we're looking at Radnich each night after he's had makeup applied. Do you really want to see him in pajamas? I know I don't.

  12. Darya.....Hottest body in the Bay area news, year after year. She has perfected the art of displaying herself. When she is doing the Gary part and turns 90 degrees to view the monitor behind her, her shoulders go back, her right arm moves to the rear and her side profile is physical perfection...doesn't get any better than that. Why do you think Fox (cable) is always number one? They have more hot women than I can keep track of!!

    1. If you call obvious fake bolt-ons hot. And that face could stop a train. I find her overall unattractive and annoying.
