KQED Pays More For Lowel Level Managers Than Air Talent; Luckoff Thinks Ronnnnn Sounds Shitty; Katie Marzullo Back at KGO; Morning Doofus Show on ABC7; Chip Franklin Will Shill Anything Because His Radio Show Sucks; Brittney Shipp Still Evading Bentley Guy; Monday Launch

 HAPPY MONDAY...not so much at KQED where lower-level managers make more than the top talking heads on TV and radio. The natives are not happy and another one-day sickout looms; from here, it's gonna take more than a day to shake up the suits. They're too busy taking their friends to Tadich on company credit cards; have a nice pledge day.

*It's pretty simple: Mick Luckoff, like the rest of you, doesn't think Ronnnnnnn sounds that great on the air. Might be sort of too honest but he's right and Mr. Softie doesn't like to hear that ...unless it was told to him by super cad, Jason Middleton, Ronn's current flavor of the month.

*After an extended leave from KGO-TV (ABC7) to care for her ailing father (who since passed) Katie Marzullo is back on the air; a bit understandably sullen ; but awash in new spirit too, despite being mistreated by the suits.


*I have no idea what the hell KGO and Burton are trying to accomplish in the morning but the experiment now is a certifiable dud. For starters, no one is watching the Disco Show...believe it or not some people actually want to watch news as opposed to seeing the pulsating chick dance on the air every five minutes; her idiotic male robot with the shaking head and clueless disposition is EL CRAPPO.

Secondly, the ENTIRE newsroom is DISGUSTED with them Oh, but wait....They ARE GROOVY on Social Media.


San Francisco Bay Area, this is your dreaded ABC7 Morning team: Disney should be proud.


Get out the barf bags
*CHIP FRANKLIN SHILL UPDATE: KGO Radio's shill patrol leader is selling today: more toilet paper, diet plans, financial planners, diet dog and cat food, plus-sized women's underwear, camping gear, sandpaper, toothpaste, cruises, Tahoe time shares, escapades in Fremont, tacos, Mexican food, Italian food, garlic snips, candy apples, bunion removers; Chip will gladly sell your product; your service because his talk show really sucks.


*BRITTNEY SHIPP UPDATE: Still evading the Bentley guy, for now.

Brittney Ship

KGO Radio shill, Chip Franklin

  2. Will have to try KPIX in the morning. Between the Disney Disco (*They used to have Videopolis @ D-Land back in the day...hmmm), KRON...well, because it's KRON, and Gasia. Good Lawd! Is she on hyper-speed coffee?! She yells, cheers, over-smiles, reads texts on air, etc. Please, someone de-FAUX her before the men in white coats escort her out.

    I don't understand what demo these newz orgs are trying to reach? What Millennial watches news on TeeVee?? They get "news" from Shitter, BuzzardFeed, in bits and pieces of only what they want to know.

    Bay Area newz is much like TV "colleges", they only give you a quick version of some information, but it's not well-rounded. Not accredited.

    Rich, when you get your video production started, you should see if you can have broadcast students report REAL NEWS for you; train them that crappy talk is NOT the way to go.

    SFSU is know for it's BECCA program. It would be great if they hired true, old school broadcasters (not talentless eye candy), to instruct newcomers.

    However, the way technology keeps going, it may seem like going backwards to many.

    Stanley Roberts should do a segment: Bay Area News Behaving Badly.

    3. Katie looks good in that shot. However, KGO let all the good ones go, like Carolyn Johnson, Janell Wang, and Jessica Acquire. ....

  5. Word on the street is that Chip stopped shaving his head after he saw that Pat Thurston is doing the Ovation Cell Therapy hair commercials on KGO. This is war.

  6. Chip also shaved his ass...

  7. Ronn's voice is really weaker now than it has ever been. He needs to retire before they let him go. Chip really needs to go back down south. He could be a condom reconditioner for a Tijuana whore house. I noticed that Ethan Bearman is back in the bay area and is on KGO Sunday mornings. He is really a great guy and should be considered for a replacement for Chip or Ronn.

    1. I thought Bearman decided to go to law school in socal? Please don't tell me he is back. Awful talk show host. He belongs on ksco with that other dork Charles "The Genius Of Watsonville" Freedman.

  8. Re your comment about Katie Marzullo:

    NOBODY should be mistreated by the suits. Nobody. ESPECIALLY if the victim is a subordinate, a woman, or both.

  9. Ethan Bearman took over Barbara Simpson's slot after she was let go, he was awful, elongated his words, always sounded like he was talking down to the listener, especially if they did not agree with him. His show was then cut to just Saturdays, I think for a the full 3 hours, but after awhile his show was just 2 hours. I noticed he filled in on KGO awhile back, and now it seems like he is on mornings on Sundays, however if you look at KGO's programming schedule he is not on, nor is Maureen Langdon new time slot Sunday 7 to 10 p.m. Ethan has gotten better, I think he is better than Drex, and perhaps a little better than Chip, which is not saying much. I would like to hear from Rich about this new schedule, and if John Rothmann might come back too?

  10. DEAD AIR KARS FOR KIDS ADS AND JOAN LUNDEN LOOKING FOR A PLACE FOR HER OLD LADY ARE BETTER THEN DREX.. OH MY G*D HE IS AWFUL.

  11. This has nothing to do with the post really, but I'm getting kind of tired of those promo photos of Scott Shafer and Thuy Vu, dressed like Neiman-Marcus models strolling on downtown streets striking poses and whispering confidentially, evidently hashing out Friday's topics. Jim Scalem looks more like my kind of Channel 9 guy

  12. "lower-level managers make more than the top talking heads on TV and radio" How is that different than other places of employment? For example, Assistant Principals earn more than teachers, who are the "on air" talent.
