*So, growing up, you told your mother you wanted to be a "foodie chap."
*At KGO Radio, the ND, Madam Corral, got an office visit from a higher-up about certain overnight policy. Of course there will never be a memo to staff.
*I'm never go to leave "Talk like a pirate" alone because I know Fred Zehnder would have had a shit attack, as he should. There's other people in the biz who appreciate the old, legacy, KTVU News.
*Dennis Richmond wasn't so beloved off air --that's not news to me.
*I don't think Fox is pushing Frank Somerville to make off-prompter remarks following news stories because it reeks of sanctimony --in other words, Frank, your particular form of happy/sad talk, doesn't meet the sincerity card.
*Mark Ibanez: your senior producer, Pete Lupetti, is a shit disturber. Ask Joe Fonzi.
*If PIX were to be serious about a face-of-the-station news anchor, they'd place Juliette Goodrich at the top of the list. She's good, solid, smart as hell and sexy to look at; there, so be it.
*It wasn't only the fact he knew he had NO chance to get the weekday PM weather gig at KRON, Brian Van Aken was also put off, among other things, by the Bentley guy's persistent on-air insults. Sure, every now and then it looks cute. All the time borders on harassment --then again, Raddy controls Pero and Pero knows not to mess with Bentley guy. That's the job of management but there is NO management at KRON.
*Roberta Gonzales had the flu last week and it really knocked her out; so, what did she do? Posted a picture on Facebook. Oy Vey.
*BREAKING NEWS: "Dancing with the Stars" has apparently kidnapped the KGO-TV "Morning" show.
*That loudmouth reporter known for his shitty tipping and obnoxious behavior was spotted at Grumpys being a real prick. I think there's something in the tuna melt he orders on a religious basis. Along with the multiple Guinness jars too.
*The next time I speak to KNTV (NBC Bay Area) lead tonsil, Raj Mathai, about his Summer Olympics plan in Rio I'll ask if he's going because if it were me I'd skip. I hate mosquitoes and mysterious viruses.
*JR Stone: People trying to behave badly.
*KRON: finally nailed the too-close studio camera. Now if you could just nail the shitty audio when anchor throws it to sports and weather person.
*I love the local media mutts trying their best to become, suddenly, experts on terrorism and other international stories. They outta just read their copy and stick to El Nino packages.
*KNBR once again using interns for sports updates. Way to protect the brand, whatever the hell that is.
