Peace returned to the KRON morning set; you can calm the children and notify your neighbors; although it's evident now that the two protagonists involved in Tuesday's mini-skirmish are not chummy with one another. Actually, they HATE each others GUTS!
All of this is now a "she-said, she-said" event so the best run-down as to what exactly took place can be summed up in a variety of scenarios --with simple JEALOUSY at the heart of the matter; LOTS of it.
But is all this worth a fight? C'mon ladies.
On the Pro-Hong side, her backers tell me she's a "hard worker" and puts in many hours at the station; "she never leaves the place," a source tells me." And it should be pointed out that Hong, a veteran in the biz, is pregnant.
While some agreed that Hong is passionate about her position several others said she can be "difficult to work with; total 'drama woman." We've heard that before.
To be fair, Winston, the ex-KGO Radio traffic anchor, is, according to some observers, not exactly Princess Beauty either. Although she regularly gets raves from co-workers as a "very nice" and cordial person; her detractors say she uses her attractive looks and demeanor as a negotiating ploy.
Said one anti-Winston source: "She's a 'faker--she seems so nice on the outside but let me tell you; it's all an act. Her true colors were shown (in the skirmish with Hong) ...She is as fake as they come!"
KRON needs this drama like a hole in the head as it deals with continuing weak worker morale all the while it has PLANS to add a NEW 10 PM Newscast (we'll talk about that in a later story).
Meanwhile, its one-man HR dept, has sided with Hong but that a "new development" involving Winston has been added to the mix; both of the boxers were back to work on Wednesday Morning looking cheerful as ever-- we'll UPDATE when we get more information.
