High Priestess Folsom at KRON Wants More Moolah; Even Ally Radnich Can't Help; He Wants More Too; 'I Have a lot of Overhead'

 DOUBLE-DOWN DARYA FLEXES MUSCLE AT KRON; WANTS MORE $; RADNICH TOO

Sure, KRON and its infantile corporate owner, are in a state of flux.

The local 4 independent albatross--with some underrated reporters and anchors and a feisty news staff--despite its total commitment to limited news-gathering, somehow manages along...moolaw

IN SPITE of, well THIS, for example:

Its "Morning News" performer, good-old Gee Whiz breathless, Darya Folsom, has once again asked, maybe firmly requested, MO MONEY MO MONEY MO MONEY! Seems the high priestess is fed up working long hours in the early-morning hours with Toledo compensation --that's sort of interesting because her boyfriend, who runs the news operation, you would think, could get the ear of management and get a decent raise for Princess Darya... She has to rely on $200G a year, for now.

MEANWHILE, Darya's unlikely ally, the Bentley man himself, Gary Radnich, is also kvetching about lack of money at 900 Front. "I have a lot of overhead!", he keeps on repeating to staff. So far, management isn't exactly feeling sorry for Raddy: He's making about $200G at what he calls his "Buster Brown" gig. Not great dough but when you combine his KNBR salary and "family money", Raddy isn't destined for homelessness anytime soon.

KRONvicts refer to the plight of Gary and Darya as a sort of 2016 "Gary's World."


Excuse me while the world grieves.

  1. It's time to clean house at KRON if management is serious about competing in the AM and the sports anchor desk. I used to watch Sidney and John on KPIX until they were released, then moved to KGO and KNTV for morning news. I suppose with the internet, television news may go the route of the morning daily newspaper.

    I appreciate your take on everything local in the local media.

  2. The value of Greedy Prince Radnich and that booby hag is far less than those two assess.

    1. Radnich is a piece of shit & his lackey Darya isn't much better.

  3. Fatnich has OVERHEAD? There's nothing in his head to begin with. Lose the Bentley you Sad Sack and you can save some $$$.

    As for the the rack, get on your knees and pucker up.

  5. Let Folsom walk and replace her with Anny Hong. When Hong is anchoring, the morning news team seems a lot more collaborative and cohesive. It's not operating as a one-star and her supporting cast tam.

    1. Totally agree! Anny Hong is a first class broadcaster! KRON mornings are worth watching when she's on.

      Delete
    2. Anny Hong is a decent morning anchor for KRON. Worth putting in the chair all the time if Darya walks away.

      Delete
    3. I think Anny Hong would be great. Get rid of Raddy and the morning BANSHEE, Darya. I don't think even Toledo would put up with her.

      Delete
    4. Anny the pale weather girl with way to much eye liner? She looks tired, sounds tired and could never replace Daria. I turn the channel when ever she starts talking. Puts me to sleep.

      Delete
    5. That's funny, I noticed she was pregnant. She wasn't hiding it. She is way better than the hyper hysterical Folsom.

      Delete
    6. Agree with the Anny Hong suggestions. She's far more professional, looks great and blends nicely with the rest of the a.m. crew.

  7. I suppose it all depends on several factors. Probably the best measure would be if the ratings go up or down when she is away from her anchor desk (on assignment as they say). Over at KTVU the vvg (vapid valley girl)has a partner at the noon hour today. Wonder if that means she needs help in the ratings department. If I recall correctly they had ratings problems with her for the afternoon slot and the 7pm news on channel 36.

    1. My goodness. That dress WAS poppin out the front though. I was like Dayummm. Look at those twins on Gasia. I had never noticed before.

  8. I rather like Ms. Folsom but then I watch KRON and KTVU at the same time with the captioner on while doing some work in the early AM. Perhaps she would get the additional money if she revealed more of her charms as in your photo of her out on the town. It might be over dressing but a nice miniskirt and strapless is certainly worth a little more to enhance KRON's status. The same could be said for the charming Ms. Shipp and Ms. Winston.

    At least I will give KRON high marks for great eye candy although the new coverage is poor at best.

    1. You be lucky to get a maxi-dress and a strap-on in the BA.

  9. Who is that fat white guy sitting next to the car?

  10. KRON management has more alternatives then either Darya or Gary so I think they're in charge. It's not like any other station in town probably wants the audience that Darya or Gary brings versus the one they already have.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Raddy has a lot of overhead; Darya has a lot of underhang, judging by that photo.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow, what a picture! You have a knack for posting great pictures. I'm still trying to recover from the posted picture of Robin Winston a few weeks back!! I was taught in Sensitivity Training not to look below the neckline, yea sure, maybe in the next lifetime! Whoever made that rule has never seen Darya or Brittney, plus all the other beautiful, sexy women we have in the Bay Area doing the news.

    One beautiful example of what I am talking about. Natasha and Kristen dressed to kill, sitting side by side, looking about as good as two beautiful women can, doing the 11 am news this morning. This Veteran salutes all the intelligent, beautiful, hot and sexy women we have doing the news/weather in the Bay Area. About the time I think it can't get any better, it always does.

    1. Rich says his blog was hacked. He didn't post that picture of Winston, nor was it her.

  13. Definitely! Get the news tramp/trashy hooker vibe going first thing in the morning. Boobs for breakfast. There you go, Dick.

  14. I imagine her as the type with little nickels. I love me some big ole pepperonis myself.

  15. what overhead? overly large head is more accurate. I don't get how a sportscaster who rarely goes to games or press conferences, and freely admits it stays employed in this line of work.

    1. You're being generous. He NEVER goes to games or press conferences!!

  16. What does Radnich work - 10 to 20 minutes max for two evening broadcasts? He's overpaid as it is. Does Folsom bring in viewers which brings in ad dollars? KRON should pay $5,000 for a survey or focus group which I believe would likely show that their absence wouldn't cost the station many viewers at all? Heck, I just might start watching with Darya gone in the morning.

  17. Oh Darya I'd hit it like there's no tomorrow. Bring a pillow

  18. Darya and Gary are the reason KRON is a joke

  19. In the mornings, l am watching Norah O'Donnell and Margaret Brennan on CBS plus "LEGS" Amy Rorbach and Lara Spencer at GMA for my beautiful women fix.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Daria and Gary are both overrated and over paid. Replace them with someone younger, better looking and cheaper. I guarantee you they wont be missed and the ratings will surely go up!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Working long hours???? The morning show is on 4am-10am. She starts at 5AM. Either James Fletcher or Anny Hong have to anchor at 4AM

    ReplyDelete
  22. Folsom and Radnich are two reasons why I watch KTVU in the morning. That and the excessive infomercials posing as news.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's good to see more beautiful black women on TV news! Robin, Brittney, Alexia, Avery, etc.

    Seems like for quite a while, it's been Asian women or white, blonde women with a Latina here and there.

    Diversity is good!

  24. Rich for a minute I thought you found those two on Larkin Street!

    My eyes, my eyes!

  25. With the extra cash Radnich receives, will he share it with those underpaid producers over at KNBR?

    Or will he instead continue to speak to them his condescending and patronizing manner?

    Say how is that union organizing coming along over at the sports leader?

  26. I hope Pero gets to bang her before she gets fired....or both get fired.
    Awkward!

    ReplyDelete
  27. If she's demanding more money, this is a great time for KRON to let her walk. Gary too. Channel 4 would be so much better without both of them.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It may be that KRON's days are numbered. Stations that give up some or all of their bandwidth for the FCC spectrum auction will reap a windfall. It's probably more profitable for KRON's new owners, Nexstar, to sell its spectrum at the FCC auction rather than continue running the station. Spectrum space in San Francisco has got to be worth millions.

  29. "I've seen birds with bigger tits." I'm not a KRON watcher, but that was a funny line!

  30. Watching KRON this morning. Are they purposely making Daria look terrible on air? Bad lighting? Bad camera angles? Drunk stylist? NO stylist?
