"You're asking me the status of 'Christian Ponder to open the show?," Cosell asked on-air incredulously. Even Cosell can smell disaster when he hears one.
*The clearly not-ready, but eye-pleasing, morning TV Traffic anchor is getting on-the-job training as she continues to embarrass the station, a CBS property, of all things. Used to be CBS wouldn't allow their brand to be intertwined with such buffoonery --but in this case, the News Director is defending the anchor and giving her unconditional support until she really falls flat on her face. Then the shit will hit the fan.
*One day in the not-so-distant future, they'll be a book about how Cumulus destroyed radio in San Francisco and all of this would have been worth it. Remember, as you finish your Wheaties, they killed KGO; only their #1 suck-up and enabler, Ronnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn Owens, defended them.
*This ridiculous "on-assignment" shit put forth by the Giants' broadcasters reached epic embarrassment and ridicule --Dave Flemming has been absent for over a week --
UPDATED: Yeah, great priority gig: Flemming is doing the Little League WS for ESPN; I thought the Giants are paying him to be near their ward. (Wonder how President Baer thinks of this?)
|Sarah and Vinnie heading splitsville|
*Brian Murphy should tell wifie when his lunches with Countess Kate Scott go overtime --such a wonderful situation for Murphy as Scott is safe, but be carefull, brother Bruin dude!
*Anne Makovec at Channel 7? Just a hunch.
*Don't be surprised if there's a really, really, really, YUGE anchor shake-up at KTVU, the local Fox house with enough turbulence to rival a Delta redeye to Miami. Here's the clue: think weather.
*By the way, Cumulus SF is Donald Trump territory --birds of a feather...
*The new drinking game AA special: when the KNBR frat boys say, "dude", gulp a Guinness --that'll take your worries away.
*Paulie Mac: 48 going on 18.
*Justin Wittmayer: Bay Area radio's Nurse Ratched --he's the genius who hired the Penis Man co-hosting 3-7 PM on the Bleeder.
*Tom Tolbert, shall we say, is not that peachy over working with a guy who once talked about his Johnson being excited at a funeral. Classy.
*At KRON, they're celebrating a civil and coherent; peaceful and tranquil really, week and a half without the Bentley guy whose buffoonery has the rank and file none-to-happy with his constant bullshit.
*Hey Frank Somerville: if you really want to take a stand, cut the BS and go out and actually DO SOMETHING! Facebook posts are pussy work. How do I know? Your boss told me so.
*The "Shower Hour" is for rah-rah dudes who scream to get paid a decent wage yet whore themselves for a 5 AM show while Cumulus laughs. Practice what you preach, Mr. War Eagle.
*BREAKING NEWS! Gasia talks about her hairspray on "The Nine"!
