WAR ON THE MORNING --KTVU's most senior staffers; including producers, news writers, and some key on-air people have risen up (slowly) and have DEMANDED to meet with station honchos about the direction of FOX2's Bay Area O and O.
The group, which is small but has some degree of influence at the station, has been "unnerved" by some of 2's "alarming news content sway away from the past."
We can only assume that incessant mugging, pathetic in-house chortling on the air, and abhorrent behavior by some of KTVU's grunts has finally pissed off the people who still count.
Maybe. We'll wait and see.
*The Shit hit the Fan at KGO where upper management suits TOLD Ronn Owens to start plugging Chip Franklin's show or else...Owens has returned to mentioning Chip's 12-3 show ...Chip is now selling more toilet paper and Rich Uncles to celebrate.
*Janelle Wang of NBC Bay Area has NY 30 Rock news execs planning a secret meeting with her in San Jose sooner rather than later. I don't think they'll be talking about meatball recipes.
*I could give a rat's ass as to Kate Scott's sexual orientation; she's the one who brings it up every five minutes and only so to use it (when she has to) to further her career. She's smart, I'll give her that because for not for her gayness, she'd be selling cosmetics at the Clovis Macys. She sure as hell doesn't know shit about sports.
*ON THE OTHER HAND: Warriors/CSNBA Warriors' Sideline Reporter, Ros Gold-Onwude DOES KNOW her sports and has LOOKS TO KILL!
*KRON loses a reporter 400 miles up north so he can become a news director at a small station--yikes, it's that bad.
