A Good Guy; Great Consumer TV News Anchor Too; KGO-TV's MVP, Michael Finney; Veteran Circle7 Helps Those Ripped Off; A KGO Favorite
I like Michael Finney quite a bit; in an era of simpleton local TV News and gimmicks galore, along comes the dignity and professionalism of a seasoned pro like Finney.
KGO-TV's veteran Consumer Affairs anchor/reporter brings peace and tranquility to people who've been scammed and ripped off by swindlers.
For his valuable (and very popular) daily series, KGO provides Finney with three full-time producers and a staff that numbers over 25. It may be excessive but it's also necessary; Finney is KGO-TV's MVP, at least in the viewer-friendly consumer news department. He's also a very likeable and non-pretentious news presenter in an environment that is clearly running in the opposite direction.
Finney maintains a growing legion of fans both in and outside the 900 Front Studios --and his talents don't go unrewarded --he's reportedly one of KGO's (ABC7) highest-paid specialty anchors at a reported $350K a year. Finney just re-upped too which is a good thing for Bay Area viewers and most especially, Circle7.
