*Speaking of NBC Bay Area, that idiotic and massively annoying blue box in the lower part of the screen is more a distraction than it is an attraction.
I get the NBC stations have been ordered to begin promoting the Olympics/Rio coverage (Gees, what great news has been coming out about that event!) but this stupid box makes it an irritant to watch KNTV's news product.
Blame it on Rio.
KRON has this nasty habit of wasting their best talent while trying mightily to feature more time of their amateur people, like, say, the astoundingly overrated J.R. Stone, who looks more like a Nordstorm women's shoes salesman than anchor and reporter.
Reid is refined, cogent, and gives appealing delivery. She doesn't have to play to the camera either which the manipulative and dorky Stone does on a nightly basis.
*In my Mike Anthony post on Wednesday I neglected to mention the KGO Radio PD does not like John Rothmann; oh, he likes him personally but doesn't care for Rothmann's on-air persona --basically because Rothmann is TOO SMART for Anthony's taste.
Anthony would be far more comfortable with millennial hosts talking about oatmeal cookie recipes.
Que Chip Franklin.

*Rosemary Orozco has become infatuated with a red dress. Wears it almost every day; at least not on the days she's wearing the blue dress. Ms. Orozco apparently has copped an attitude around the KTVU studios which probably means she too is sending resumes to LA stations.
*Flemming, by the way, is the Giant's hand-picked successor to the main radio PBP gig when Jon Miller finally retires and goes off to teach his new college prep class" How to do endless 'Vin Scully impressions and how to say, "uh", 20,000 times during a baseball broadcast."
*How ironic that some Chronicle Sports writers who have complained in the past about budget-trimming are the same columnists who appear regularly on KNBR, the station that is rigorously fighting the idea of paying its small people livable wages.
*The fact that it was this blog, my 415 Media that reported, exclusively about a KRON MMJ getting assaulted in Berkeley and that no other news outlet reported it is a rather sad and telling indication of just how pathetic and jealous Bay Area Media has become.
Maybe it's better they too stick with meatball recipes and wonder bread material.
