IF YOU NEED FURTHER EVIDENCE THAT KGO RADIO IS A JOKE, TAKE EARLY TUESDAY MORNING.
While the initial reports of the Belgium terror attacks began coming in, KGO was running repeats of a syndicated show. OK, so we're not surprised, it's KGO...as the news became more gruesome and the death toll began increasing, KGO was asleep at the wheel.
Past 4 AM, KCBS began going wall-to-wall with the ongoing developments in Brussels. KCBS went to its CBS Radio network coverage and began switching to Sky News, which had reporters on scene describing the horrific scene at the airport and train station.
By this time, the seriousness of what had happened was evident; the gravity of the situation was clear; the attacks were perpetrated most likely by suicide bombers and some Americans were among the casualties.
Meanwhile, KGO Radio, your "News" station was, GET THIS, running a TAPED, "Best of Ronn Owens" program, I swear to God. Owens was talking about the "most important news events of 2015"...so while Brussels was besieged, KGO was running a taped Ronnnn show from December, 2015.
Way to cover news, KGO. Wonder if the ND was sleeping. Who's minding the store?
You would think someone with half a brain in the newsroom listening would have taken the initiative to cut to KGO's in-house news service, CNN Newsfeed, to cover their ass, but NO, the yahoos in the newsroom (who were there to begin the 5 AM Morning News) didn't do shit. Maybe they were busy with their granola and house coffee.
What a joke.
