THE PROBLEM (of which there are many) I have with people like KTVU's sappy Mike Mibach and Keba Arnold is that they are complete showboaters, especially Mibach, who tries to portray a "serious" look when he's simply a total poser.
So too, Keba Arnold, who strikes me as a fourth-tier news anchor who was brought to the Bay Area to fulfill certain professional obligations for FOXified KTVU. Arnold was working in Sacramento and now she's in Oakland, good for her, but she's not ready for primetime.
Neither is Heather Holmes --I still don't get why KTVU is so enamored with this lightweight diva who would be better off in Fresno reading farm reports --am I missing something? Oh, she's blond and skinny and dresses like a party girl from Burlingame --sorry, sigh her up, right away!
Holmes reads the teleprompter very well, I'll give her that, but where's the beef? Never mind.
Allie Rasmus, say, KTVU is bent on relying soulless phonies with all the authenticity of a Lodi 7-11.
*KRON still uses its OLD, decades old, news jingle--that stench-filled, vulgar musical Van Ness casserole that sounds like it was some leftover goulash from a Tommy's Joynt 2 AM crowd. You might want to can that crap if you're going for 10 PM legit.
*Hey, Mark Ibanez: the new jacket-less look is so 1972. This is 2016, get a grip, Marco--you're broadcasting live shots on scene--not trying to pick up sloppy seconds at the Condor bar. Get a clue. Better yet, ask your best bud, Pete, you seem to heed his advice, always.
*Dear NBC Bay Area: Have you changed your News Set? It's been, like, what, a day since you changed the last one.
*Radnich and Ibanez: birds of a feather...
