Many in the KGO-TV newsroom, I'm told by someone who knows and works there, are DISGUSTED by this--scroll down to Jan. 8 and watch Natasha Zouves and Reggie Aqui dance during a break and look like fools.
*Add the word, "sanctimonious" to "pompous"; Frank Somerville, who uses Facebook to appeal to his legion of sycophants.
Frank, unlike you, I'm open and happy with my strands of hair, el baldo de supreme --proud of it, in fact. Furthermore, plugs, I don't need to post pictures of my kids to justify whatever the hell I'm saying. Bye Mr. Burgundy.
*Quite geniuses at KTVU who think by referring to newscasts like, "The 9" and "The 4" will somehow make them unique. Yea, sure, just like cow chips come in different shapes and sizes.
*Hey Frank, just ask yourself this: "What would Fred Zehnder think?"
*The latest mush from TV News anchors: when talking about the mega jackpot and lamenting "I didn't win." It's so predictable and stupid too. You'll see this crap again and again when the next big jackpot comes around.
*Why do you come here? Because you like snarky --if it were the opposite, you'd skip this. So, as I tell various people, if you're looking for sweet and charming, go read Ben Bland Torres and give Ronnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn and Copie a call.
*Damn right I'm miserable, go watch our local TV newscasts.
*David Bowie: damn.
*I hope I'm wrong: John Madden won't be back anytime soon on the radio.
*This is the article Cumulus hopes its SF (and beyond) doesn't read.
*"Treat people the way you want to be treated," says an old buddy. Apparently, KRON's management didn't get the memo.
*Again, the guy that every day on the radio talks about his kids; preaches in order to be just, you must have family and that gives you responsibility --if you don't espouse that formula, you might as not exist, in his words. Too bad he doesn't practice what he preaches. Ask the people of the Tenderloin.
*Michael Savage: TSL #-1 radio host. High fives at KSFO. I'm a fan. Deal with it.
*I don't hate all the anchors in town just most of them. Hair plugs or not.
*You can be quite terrific at your craft without making a fuss, without coming across as pompous and phony: ask Ken Wayne. Ditto, Anne Makovec and Carolyn Tyler.
*Speaking of Makovec, her and Phil Matier on Sunday morning KPIX: appointment TV. Or, in plain talk: talking to the audience like they are adults and having respect too. What a novel idea.
*You know, KRON has some really good reporters and anchors. They know I'm rooting for them, not the schmucks that wash used Bentleys and do the dirty work for sports guy.
*Too bad The 4 and The 9 didn't do some real good investigative packages --you know, material that counts but then again, Fox caters to morons so fugeeet about it.
*Between KRON's 20 weather reports per newscast and KTVU's 60 weather teases who the hell needs the Weather Channel here?
*Armstrong and Getty: strip malls are us.
*Gil Gross: radio Siberia.
*KNTV: (NBC Bay Area) not the splashiest news operation but pretty damn good reporters and anchors.
*Stacey Baier and Aaron Pero: birds of a feather...
*Next week Ben Blong Torres will do a 3000-word essay on Cumulus' toilets.
