Guess Who Gets The Most Mail at KRON? Not The Bentley Guy; 4th of July Predictable SF Media Tactics; SFO Live Shots; Emeryville Gas station MOS; Have a Marine Layer on Me

 WHO GETS THE MOST MAIL AT KRON?

Not the Bentley man, not People Behaving Badly Stanley, try Brittney Shipp --put that on the LA resume, dear, because they like that.

*The "news" you see and hear about today (Friday) will consist of the usual, predictable SFO live shot with frantic female reporter.

Typical moronic Q and A--Reporter: "So, headed off for a big weekend?" Passenger from San Leandro, probably some sarcastic white kid, teenager: "Yep, goin' fishing."

Very astute.

It doesn't stop there. The obligatory and infamous Emeryville Shell Station off Hwy 80 is also a popular place where dumb reporters ask dumb questions, to wit:

"Hey, cheap gas prices --is that why you're filling up?"

Pleasanton middle-aged woman in Dodge mini-van: "Well, why not get the kids and hubby off to a trip--It's the 4th of July, so yeah, we kinda figured, 'go for it!"

Just damn ingenious.

And don't forget the 6,999 weather reports from KRON and KTVU because, hell, we will shove weather down your throats whether you like it or not! I'll look at Britney.

* The over-under on Bill Martin saying, "marine layer" now stands at 10. Just for the 5 alone.

*Hey KGO-TV: Is it absolutely mandatory that EVERY weather report has to come from atop the 900 Front ABC Broadcast Center? We've seen that Bay Bridge shot now, what, 70,000 times? We know it looks cool that Spencer Christian is OUTSIDE (again) as if we need outside shot for yet another weather segment. Oh, now you have an excuse because of the new set, I get it, thanks ABC7.

*Word on the street: The ND at NBC Bay Area, Johnny Mitchell, is supposedly about to be axed by the news people at 30 Rock for reasons unknown.

*Marine layer: It's fog, can't you just say "fog?" Or is that against the law at WEATHER AUTHORITY!

*Gasia Mikaelian is probably due for about 9000 selfies with her red, white, and blue pencil skirt.

*Just think if we actually had some weather here.

*Alan Wang ...from a reliable broadcast source...got about a few shades north of a million bucks from ABC. He can like a whole bunch of tweets now.

*How does a certain News Director ...who has loads of both settled and non-settled legal cases on their record ..still have a job? Mickey Mouse wants to know.

*415 Media weather report, this weekend: fog in the morning, clearing skies, fog in the afternoon and evening. Warm inland. Done.

HAVE A COOL WEEKEND.

    KRON's mailbag says viewers don't mind the weather. At least not when Brittney's presenting it.

  5. Fog is down on the deck, the marine layer is up in the air.

    Why is Spencer Christian doing weather outside? Why do in studio anchors cut to the reporter in the newsroom just a few steps away, especially when the backdrop is not the newsroom but rather TV master control? Why does TV cover fires and use helicopters to cover police chases? Because Mr. Radio Guy, TV is about pictures. What you're asking for is static shots of anchors, none of whom you seem to have the slightest respect for anyway. How boring!

  6. Cathy Heenan continues to suffer because of Radnich. She still can only fill or do stories pre 6pm.
    Then she HAS to leave the building as he tells stories about his big heart.
    I'm sure her bank account is not the same either. Viki's has grown. She and Radnich are pal's. Today.
