|Reggie Aqui and Natasha Zouves|
I'm hearing Zouves is annoyed (join the club, Natasha) and had finally had enough with Aqui's over-the-top disposition on and off the air.
Behind his golly-gee persona is a guy that has had frequent run-ins with staff. Reggie thinks he's the life of the party only anybody with half a brain is wise to him. I detailed as much not so long ago.
It's nice to know Zouves has finally smelled the coffee. Right now their frosty relationship hasn't reached "can't work with him/her" status but they're definitely at war with one another, you can take it to the bank.
I've warned you, Bay Area.
*That guy that's pissed off because he lost his girlfriend because he has no money after the DUI is pathetic enough--on a commercial that's played over and over and over, worse yet. Between Dinovite and Kars 4 Kids, AM radio is toxic to the ears.
*Mike Krukow on Saturday plugging Giants-Mets Sunday Night: "Radio only." Jeez, Mike the game was on ESPN. Even Jon Miller said so. Is Krukow so much in the KNBR bubble that he's afraid to say the game will "be televised by ESPN; me and Jon Miller will be on the radio?" Grab some pine, meat!
*Yeah, Anne Makovec is brainy but she's fat. And I'm positively svelte.
*The pain and anxiety for the folks up near Clear Lake is bad enough; the insensitivity on display by a few dumb newbie TV reporters is worse.
*KRON, if the camera is another few feet away from the anchors you will not be prosecuted. The up close shot doesn't help the look of you or the air talent but I've been saying that for months now, maybe Stanley Roberts should be called in.
*Meanwhile, KRON's "10 PM News" is "the USA Today" of local TV News; condensed packages followed by 50,000 weather updates. Whatever.
*KGO-TV: The new set debuts tonight. I'm going to hold a party at the Emeryville Dennys.
*It's not so much the Maria Medina thing; the morning show during the week thingie; the very beautiful but bumbling morning traffic reporter; the wayward anchors thing; it's just the feeling by most of KPIX's personnel that management doesn't have a clue what the hell they're doing--other than that, everything is fine.
*Excuse me for sleeping: 2016 Olympics.
