|Gary Radnich wants more money|
The Bentley man and star sportsman anchor has quietly told station management "Pay Me or Trade Me!"
It was a none-too-subtle threat that even though KRON is in financial muddle and the albatross king, Radnich wants his share of the financial pie. Radnich gets roughly $200K from KRON (a far cry from his reported $400K from KNBR Radio); Radnich wants his KRON salary roughly north of his KNBR deal. This comes from the guy who refers to his TV station as "my 'Buster Brown' gig."
|Brian Van Aken is off to 30 Rock|
Although he has family here and loves the Bay Area, Van Aken, who is well-liked by the staff, decided enough was enough and took the 30 Rock gig; good for Van Aken.
|KSFO Morning Show tonsils Brian Sussman and Katie Green|
Rasmus recently co-anchored the station's weekend and weekday "Mornings on Two" providing a welcome respite from the shameless self-promoter, Gasia Mikaelian.
Rasmus delivers a crisp, no-nonsense, news read with sincerity and straight-forwardness --she's not mugging for the camera and doesn't insult her viewers. It's a far cry from Dracula Girl.

*EVENING FALLOUT at KGO RADIO: The doofus that hosts talk from 7-10 PM, "Drex" is OUTRAGED! over being bumped on Monday Night in favor of a Warriors Game.
That's right. Dreck was pissed that Cumulus decided to air the Warriors-New Orleans game, both on KNBR 1050 and KGO. (The Giants meaningless spring-training game was broadcast on KNBR 680 which necessitated the usage of 1050 and KGO.)

*NO ONE is saying a word about the condition of JOHN MADDEN, who continues to recover from open-heart surgery --Madden hasn't been on his KCBS broadcasts since last November --he's also been absent from his national radio broadcasts --there are those in the biz who have quietly said that they wouldn't be surprised if Madden was done.
