Hands Down The Worst Broadcast Anchor Team in the History of Bay Area TV News; KGO's Pathetic Aqui and Zouves, AKA: Donnie and Marie

 Reggie Aqui and Natasha Zouves: Donnie and Marie: Hands down thee WORST Broadcast Anchor team in history of Bay Area TV News.

This is your KGO-TV (ABC7) Morning News anchor duo.

Lovely.

She's a 2nd-tier albatross with a voice that reckons the late Julia Child; an aloof, goo-infested dumb-dumb so dumb, he (Aqui) has to do the interviews and she disappears --just brilliant.

Aqui is a mind-numbing, vomit-inducing, self-inflicted idiot with all the grace of a Gilroy IHop.


Why did Trixie hire Reggie? Because he works cheap and can tweet? Thanks Little Willie Burton. Oh, because the Morning Show needed better numbers. (The ratings are down from a year ago)

Was it because KGO needed some demo that would please the Castro district? Keep in mind I don't care about a person's sexual preference --to each his own--but I don't believe it's a smart move for a primary news anchor to tweet fantasies to San Jose Sharks players--call me crazy.

KGO, namely, Trixie Watkowski thinks this is genius. Then again, everyone in the building can't stand her, what do they know.

  1. Man Rich! I don't know why you don't like Natasha Zouves! What is not to like? And her voice is like the best thing about her, and that is saying a lot! Her voice is smooth, her enunciation is perfect, and she never says "uhh". Cap all that with picture perfect eyes and face, and well, as I said, what is not to like? I will agree with you though, about Reggie Aqui. But the two of them together are not that bad.

    2. 12:42...I agree 1000%!!! She is the most photogenic woman I have ever seen on any Bay Area newscast. I watch the News, not for the News but to see Natasha! She is in a league of her own and always will be! She is standing on top of the pyramid looking down on everyone else, a place where she belongs!!

      Whoever hired Natasha deserves a two week paid vacation anywhere in the World. Good job ABC7 is a dramatic understatement. What does tomorrow bring, another day of Natasha!

    3. Rich you always talk about being able to read the Prompter in a clear and concise manner is the key element for anchor. Is she a light weight on the journalism side? yes for sure but she cant be 30 yrs old yet and her bonafides from San Diego was Sexist News Anchor so I don't think we should be expecting Diane Sawyer.

      I dont care for the social media stuff or the need to dance in the commercial breaks but her ability to deliver stories is better than most at her experience (she's more polished then Liz Cook) If Reggie does interviews better then so be it.

  2. They could easily be replaced with Matt Keller & Tiffany Wilson, who are already on staff @ KGO. It would be such an improvement & easily done!

  4. Yeah Rich, you don't care about someone's sexual preference but you have no problem mentioning it as if that somehow makes them unqualified. (Scott,Aqui,Palumbo,Karel,etc.)
    Btw- I like Zouves. Not harsh, easy voice and delivery.

    2. "Team Natasha<<<"

  5. Well I like Natasha. Like her voice and she's hot. You failed to mention she IS an Emmy winner. Reggie seems to work well with her.

  6. IHOP takes offense... it does not have a presence in Gilroy.

    1. Good Point I think they are more reflective of the IHOP on Lombard. If you are on Lombard skip that IHOP it is so bad it could be an AM newscast!

  7. Recall that KGO bounced Katie Marzullo from the anchor chair. Why they did that is still a mystery to me. A professional all the way

  8. Aqui? How authentic. At least Geraldo changed his name to Rivera from Rivers.

    He looks like a grade A - first class Douche. Where did this stuffed suit come from?

  9. I see a big improvement over when they were first paired. Definitely watchable, both of them!

  10. I have given them time, but I do not see how this is an improvement over the duo who were exiled to make room.

  11. Who they have on in the morning doesn't matter. minds on something else.

  12. They're both pretty hard to take, but they have a ways left to go if they're going to achieve the kind of mad, hysterical energy being emitted from Gasia on the Nine this morning. She was beside herself describing how excited she was that Martha Quinn (yes, former MTV VJ) was a guest on the show. As KTVU cut-away to go to a commercial break, you could still hear audio of Gasia blabbering away with pant-wetting excitement. Gawd, what has happened to her!? She actually was a very good anchor before FUX showed her where they store the cool-aid.

    Are all of these morning people auditioning for the worst program that ever happened to TV - Good Morning America and its bastard children?

  13. They are terrible. I'll admit she is a good reader but she's an airhead. Think Elizabeth Cook. Doesn't know how to report or write. Not a lot of respect for her in the newsroom. Just, bad. As for Reggie Aqui? He's, well, he's the worst anchor in this market. Worse than Darya and Dave Clark.

    1. Liz as brutal on the election coverage last night.

  14. Natasha has potential. I watched her delivery. She's calm, clear, doesn't get overly excited. Reggie on the other hand, he's probably a nice guy, but too much facial movements, excited out of context (makes me wonder where is the newscast going) and he's doesn't appear to be serious. Lacks appropriate sincerity with his nonverbals (tone, facial expressions). He'd be a great entertainment reporter, but news anchor not the case. I like to see just the facts in delivering the news.

  15. Look, to each their own, but Natasha is smarter than many of you are giving her credit for. She's in a role, and is performing for that role. Quite well, I would argue. She's very good at what she does. I've met her out and about, too, and found her to be both intelligent and eloquent.
