Roberta Gonzales and Roqui Theus
 Now Roberta Gonzales...sensing a sea change in the KPIX Morning Show is kissing up to Roqui Theus --which is amazing in that only a few weeks ago I was told that Countess Roberta was both annoyed and jealous of Theus' growing influence at 855 Battery.

This is all getting rather gooey especially when you consider some details I got from a 415 Media spy.



* The Skinny:



Here is a list of the fill-ins PIX used before Theus was hired:

*Gianna Franco: not enough sparkle, better-suited for radio.

*Elizabeth Wenger: was getting tired of the routine and horrific hours; got pregnant too. Quit.
 
*George Rask: Rask knows the market and knows traffic. Unfortunately, Rask is not as pleasing to the eye as Theus is. It's that simple.

*Sandra Osborne: talented enough but was deemed  unspectacular.
 
*Liza Batallones: didn't do enough to make consideration of permanent hire.

Robin Winston and Erica Kato both auditioned. Winston turned down the gig because of the low pay and Kato didn't do very well in her audition from what I've learned.
 
Either way, Bailey wanted to make her mark on the morning show by hiring an attractive, younger woman personality of color.

She got it.

So far, the reviews aren't good but a lot of people are sucking up to the twosome --for now at least.

  1. Weatherwoman is a young woman's game. They want the eye candy to draw viewers in. Is Roberta in her 60's now? I remember watching her on KNTV in the 80's with her 60's hairdo.

  3. OK,I got it nailed. Roqui has got a strong Michelle Obama vibe going. Tall,vivacious,athletic looking body,big perfect smile.
    Who doesn't want to bang the first lady? Its just more of why good (and who's making the styles) looking woman are hired. They give off the "If only"..

  4. Fame genes sure do not hurt (who knows how many of her dad and ex-NBA star Reggie's pals would respond in not-so-kind manner to a deserving removal).

  5. Wow kpix, good lucking holding on to your fillins- all of whom are infinitely better than that idiot you hired to stumble all morning.
    Erica is flawless on the radio, much too hot to be behind a mic. Her biggest downfall is she doesnt look black enough for kpix

    3. Erica ruffled the wrong feathers at KRON. She played dirty. Some people loved her- others hated her. Just ask around (including former KRONvicts. They have some good stories on her catiness).

  6. Between these two and that Veronica that anchors in the evening, sounds like a wonderful place to work. CBS has quite a reputation already in the workplace if you know the company's history.

  7. CBS is a nightmare. All the good people leave or are shown the door because they are not a minority. I can't believe Roberta still as a job she is pathetic and so sweet I can't watch. Roqui was a minority and cheap hire. She mispronounces the highways and is clueless.
    Agree about Veronica too. She seems like high maintenance. They lost me as a viewer and management should be ashamed of all these poor decisions. They make all the money!

  8. Prediction: Next Black Dress photo duet will show the ladies with fake frowns and making Gang Signs with their extended fingers. Of course they don't really know what those signs mean.
    All for the Multi-Culturalists out there.

  9. Damn.... I can't wait for Erica to get signed on by somebody.

  10. What happened to Gianna Franco? Did she lose her job at PIX?

    1. Gianna was a fill-in reporter

    2. Gianna was great! Looks like she has a pretty good gig at 95.7 FM with Damon Bruce

  11. Why does a TV morning show need traffic reports? I mean it's not like people are driving and watching TV at the same time, or at least they shouldn't be. Traffic reports are fine for radio. I'd bet the first morning show that dumps traffic reports in favor of more news will see a jump in the ratings.

    The weather reports can be shortened and delivered less frequently. Especially now when the weather is the same every day.

    1. Dumbest post of the day...
      Why traffic reports? So you can see whats out on the roads ahead of your departure, dolt.
      I use it religiously and helps me steer away from hot spots.
      DUH......
