Three Quick Friday Questions and Answers; Pero Time at KRON; Garcia-Cannon DV Status; Brian Van Aken
1. Is Aaron Pero on his last legs at KRON? If he isn't I don't know what it takes for a guy that is so a part of KRON's eternal dysfunction--sure, Pero is not responsible for Media General's incompetence, but his mercurial style of managing; his relentless favoritism toward some; his open hostility (screaming and yelling at reporters and producers) has rankled the staff. Nobody has figured it out yet. I think I have an idea how he survives --stay tuned.
2. What's with the Domestic Violence Case against Brent Cannon and Laura Garcia-Cannon? At their most recent court date on Feb. 21, the case was essentially laid out and is headed for trial unless there's some sort of settlement--but Garcia-Cannon wants to proceed against her estranged husband--they both had an incident last July 31 in which she accuses him of shoving her down to the floor. Of course Brett said she flopped intentionally. He's living in a trailer park while she cares for their triplets ...nobody what happens, this is going to end up ugly
3. Why is Brian Van Aken still on the air at KRON? He's fulfilling his last weeks before heading to NBC and "The Today Show". Van Aken gave his two-weeks notice on Monday. He's unhappy personally because he has family here in the Bay Area but delighted, obviously, to be going to a prestigious location such as 30 Rock.
