Wonder Boy --Lee Rosenthal--the ex-KTVU ND who split town and headed to Boston's WFXT was blown out recently.
The next transaction and you read it here first: Tom Raponi, the GM also in Boston is about to get his walking papers.
*The Giants broadcast team using the term, "on assignment", for someone taking a few days off would be cute every now and then--in Boise.
The on assignment drivel is now an embarrassment that sounds stupid and cheesy --only the booster club would approve it and they don't count.
*Roberta Gonzales continues to embarrass herself and by extension, KCBS, with her overly sappy, phony, patronizing, shtick on her 7: 20 Weather wrap --it's condescending too and I'll harp on it forever because the listeners are getting sick of it too.
*The joke in Media Gulch near Broadway and Battery: industry wags calling KCBS "KCBKGO"--the tag referring to all the ex-KGO news reporters and anchors suddenly on KCBS.
Jon Bristow, Jennifer Hodges, Scott Lateri, Kevin Radich, just to name a few.
KCBS big suit, Jack Swanson, of course used to be captain KGO so I'm not surprised here.
*Morning shows, hell, almost all shows need time and some seasoning but you also have to program with the intention of believing in something, I mean, really believing in in with conviction.
KPIX's tried and tattered morning meandering mush is a disaster.
It looks as if Daffy Duck directs it.
*The afternoon-drive doofus who likes to talk about his penis has already pissed off one of the femme fatales at Knibber ...much sooner than I expected. What a prick!
*Update on KGO-TV's new set: a staffer says "the next few days." Can hardly wait.
