415 Media Exclu: KRON's Radnich Gets Warning from Media General; Heenan Video Still Not Going Away; Gets Major Treatment on FNC's "Kelly File' and 'The Five'

 A SENIOR HR manager at Media General, the corporate owner of several TV stations, including KRON, gave a warning to Gary Radnich, who was involved in an on-air kerfuffle involving Catherine Heenan, 415 Media has learned exclusively.

The video went viral and has circulated the entire globe. Just when it appeared to becoming an afterthought, its content was the topic of Fox News Channel's "The Five"--for the show's entirety, mind you. It also had significant play on Megyn Kelly's "The Kelly File."

The warning to Radnich did not involve termination, according to my Insider, but its language was "significant" enough to get placed in Radnich's employee file. Radnich has been mum about the video never mentioning it on-air and so too Heenan, who appeared to be flustered by it.

Radnich has not publically apologized to Heenan.

KRON is still not talking. Surprise, surprise.

  1. Radnich, you're fucking fired. Security will escort you & your belongings to the front door.

  2. This is getting kind of old. Gary should just apologize and Heenan didn't need to make such a big deal about it to begin with. If this doesn't die off, then some firing will need to happen. Yes, I am dreaming.

  3. Was the Fox broadcast critical of Radnich? With the likes of Hannity and O'Reilly doing worse on air why pick on KRON?

    2. The panel just speculated on whether Gary was joking or not. They didn't think so.

  4. Radnich should be fired. A strong verbal warning, what does that do. FIRE HIM - he is an ass that makes KRON look worse, if possible.

  5. He's known her 25 years..and still couldn't just say he was sorry.
    Radnich actually takes the view he's the victim. THAT'S the real Gary's World.

    2. Good point-in the video he clearly is saying 'how dare you, stay out of my (meager) domain' while Catherine is saying "I'm only reading what they're giving me, brah'. But how do you expect an insecure, over-the-hill and clearly unchiseled sports non-entity to react? Yes, like a 2 year old!

  6. I could have sworn I heard Kelly call him Radnit.

  7. I doubt "The Five" spent the entirety of a show on this.

    1. "The Five" spent only a short segment of the show talking about KRON, but for a local story it didn't look good to be called out on a national show. Embarrassing. These things usually happen on TV stations you've never heard of.

  8. Just a hunch: They're starting to look for someone.

    1. That would require effort. You have no idea how inert and brain-dead KRON management is. That's why Pero is still employed there. Unless Heenan threatens to sue (and she won't), he's fine.

    2. Little Aaron Pero. Boy Broadcaster.

    3. "They" in this case is Media General. Again, just a hunch.

    4. If the corporate office has to step in and do a job that should be done on the local level, that can't be good.

  9. The Fox News Channel also showed the clip on "The Greg Gutfeld Show" on Sunday night. They also spent a lot of time ridiculing old Raddy and making him look foolish.

  10. How do yo find out about all this hot red meat?
    Are insiders in need of a Father Confessor figure?
    Do they wish to 'warn' any newcommers?
    Why are they telling YOU all this good gossip?
    ....Oh, and keep it coming, Bro.!

  11. I want an drum head court martial with immediate execution of sentence including banishment to Good Day Sacramento...

    ReplyDelete
  12. Why did Media General finally speak up? Well,I see Black Bear Diner and Lexus have dropped sponsoring Raddy like a hot potato.
    When Radnich starts costing the company money...

  13. Who are you all kidding, this has been great publicity for KRON whom nobody watches, but now.........

  14. Who is this Radnich guy? Lived here my whole life and never heard of him. He must live in his own world.

  15. Gary is a great guy. I thought it was a funny bit. I find Gary's good-natured teasing of his coworkers is endearing, not offensive. Gary talks on the air like a real person, not like a plastic milk toast anchor.

    1. Thanks Gary....

    2. Does he really do sports? I thought he was the old guy on TMZ

  16. I see that KRON has Radnich quarantined in the neighboring zip code during his segment. Repeated warnings not to harass the on-air talent went unheeded, so banishment to the other side of the studio is the result and he still doesn't get it.

  17. A ban to Good Day Sac?? Good Day deserves better..

  18. Guttfeld is from the area. Went to Cal, and is familiar with Radnich.

  19. Radnich is a bloviating blowhard, insufferably full of himself, and lazy-ass to boot.

    1. He hasn't had an original sports take in 25 years

  20. Radnich's Ears are getting HUGE

  21. The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon did a bit on it during the opening monolog. Made Radnich look silly. His failure to advise the other segment producers/writers on what he is including in his segment is his fault. He has used this tactic before. Being sarcastic with a bit of biting humor to get his point across. Appears to be wearing thing with co-workers.
