PUBLIC PEOPLE in high profile positions like TV NEWS most often have to relinquish their privacy...especially if they're married and boning other men and women.
*KGO Radio's Pat Thurston will be filling in for Ronn Owens this (Wednesday) morning--Owens is sick (a nasty chest cold) In fact, Thurston had to fill in on Tuesday right after the first hour as Owens tried to do a full show but sounded so awful and was so sick, management told him to go home.
Owens health is a question of great concern at KGO and other lingering medical issues have made a lot of things difficult of late. Even though we disagree with his past issues and present-day peccadilloes we wish him a speedy recovery.
*The State of Cumulus-SF stations: KSFO is under the radar with more-than-average numbers and performing profitable work for an operation with only 4 people on the staff; KNBR, Cumulus' cash cow, essentially pays for the FM stations and KGO, as it's presently constituted. Which is sad.
KGO Radio has essentially become Cumulus' warehouse --picking up Cal and Stanford sports broadcasts; home of taped real estate and health shows plus a god-awful local travel show. Don't forget, NO NEWS now on the weekend. Updates? Gone.
