You Know PIX, That Kenny Choi Hire Was Just Flat Out Damn Genius

 AH, what a strategically magnificent hire, PIX, you managed to outdo yourself...Kenny Choi co-anchoring the Morning News --Just flat out brilliant! The Bay Area has gone off its rocker since he started a month ago. The women are screaming! There's mass delirium on Broadway and Battery. People can't wait for sunrise.

Dear Dan Rosenheim and Bruno Cohen: THIS was just damn genius. I think you guys deserve a trip to the Waikiki Howard Johnsons, all expenses paid --plus, added bonus? You don't have to go far for your next Hawaiian hire!

  1. His problem is he's following a seasoned vet like Frank Mallicoat, who is kinda the anti-Somerville as far as pomposity. I think his delivery is fine, but this may be too big a stage for him at this point in his career - but maybe it's me. Even the cops look like kids to me these days. And because of my age, I grew up with newscasters who had a certain stature and visual gravitas. It would be interesting to see how old former local newscasters were, sans McElhatton, who started out later, were when they took over newscasts. I don't think Choi and Sam Brock on KNTV are bad - they just look so young. I don't even think Reggie Aqui is that bad when he's serious, but when he and Zouves mess around like their playing newscasters, it's two steps forward/six steps back on the credibility scale. It ain't the friggin' Daily Show.

  4. Just when you thought that an anchor couldn't get any duller than Griego, Choi shows up.

  5. Watched for the first time the other day - for about 35 seconds - Absolutely the worst!

  6. Is he part of that Larry Biel tarde with Hawaii??

  7. Choi probably works for a fraction of what his predecessor did. So the people who hired him are seen as geniuses, trust me. They're just filling time between the Sleep Train commercials.

  8. Local newscasts continue their downhill slide. I'd rather wake up to The Game Show Network and watch classic episodes of Match Game 74. Seeing Fannie Flagg and Debralee Scott is a damn side better than watching the live version of Hong Kong Phooey.

      Just found out this Saturday's Cross Burning Ceremony has been moved from 9pm to 10pm.

      As always, don't forget to bring the extra Gas Cans...and your "Make America Great Again"" Trump hat.

      Sincerely,
      The KKK

    2. 9:04...You have a personal problem, it's called low self esteem, I have seen it many times. No need to rain on someone else's parade because you have low self esteem. Keep your personal problems to yourself, perhaps you can discuss them with your family or doctor! Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

  9. Don't get the fascination with morning TV news. Lots of interesting things going on with radio. KNBR is going to relaunch 1050 with KGMZ's former assistant PD...April ratings came out yesterday...new morning shows on the Breeze and KFOG.

  10. If he says, "... post it to Facebook.. " ONE MO 'GIN. I watched a couple of times a week or so ago when my KTVU app wasn't working and he seems stiff and forced. I'm stiff-- but I'm not on TV either and it's like he was forcing the social media angle at every turn. He seems like a smart and eager fella. He'll get it soon.

    1. He's probably forcing the social media angle because a social media fanatic from management is hidden behind him on the set with a gun pointed to his back.

  11. @ 3:21 p.m. and @ 8:07 p.m. -- Why the need for unnecessary, racist comments?

    1. I was going to say the same thing about 9:04.

  12. Here we go with your hate Asians theme. Pardon me, I do not live in the dump known as San Francisco, so please explain the Hawaii reference. Never mind, it is just the city's racist code for Asians.

  13. 10:24 and 10:41 you pretty much nailed it. I never liked Maillicot or whatever his name is. He had absolutely no personality. Choi is just fine. Keba has a terrible voice but if she had a bigger bustline the men anyway wouldn't care.

    I don't understand the Mibach hate. He's a good reporter and is good as an anchor. I think it has to do with the fact he's good at what he does and probably looks a whole lot better than most of the guys who post here.

  14. I agree 12:49. Iike MIke Mibach -- he's cute!

  16. @759, thanks. Do you know Kenny, or did you do research?

  17. Kenny Choi is so smooth and easy going and good looking, yes of course, and totally professional, sorry, you Choi haters. Mallicoat? Trust me or not, I wanted to like the guy, but I always found him seeming to be insecure about his job, as if he felt out of place or unqualified. Choi is perfection.
