*Wayne Freedman, the star reporter over at KGO-TV used to be quite the ally of combative and non-people-friendly, News Director, Tracey Watkowski-Silva. No more. Even her most staunchest friends now can't stand her and those that do are only doing so to protect their interests. What a great morale booster at 900 Front.
*Speaking of KGO, that new set had all the buzz of a frozen waffle at IHop. I mean, it looks just fine and all, but for $4 million bucks I was hoping to see the Starship Enterprise.
*Circle7 Set Good Gossip: from someone in the building the KGO management told the weather women to "bring your best high-heels to the set." Seems the new camera/HD settings at 7 are designed to televise the women "from head to toe." Good time to be a podiatrist near Front Street.
|Ama Daetz and Dan Ashley|
*Roqui Theus Update: better, now just merely half-dreadful.
*Chip Franklin: cardboard voice on the radio with intermittent silly topics ranging from "what's your favorite way to cook tofu?" to "Are you happy with your sex life?"
This all in one day while Charlotte, NC was about to burn.
Chip should stick to selling pillows and toe-fungus foam because his slop-show on KGO Radio is about as compelling as a public restroom on Turk and Eddy.
*KGO Radio: Home of the Byron Allen Show.
*Ronnnnnnnn: sad, really.
*Wonder what Duane Kuiper would sound like after a trip to Damascus.
*The KNBR "Sports Update": In reality, just another 2-minute commercial with accompanying sponsor --updates are real news and not rehashed scores from 24 hours earlier. KNBR and Cumulus has contempt for their listeners, with the commercial ambush on a daily basis. Greed, mediocrity, and audio blight, what a bargain.
*Radnich, Kuiper and Krukow: Republicans and Anti-Union. Fact.
|Raj Mathai and Jessica Aguirre|
*Good point from a 415 Media reader: Kuiper, Kruk too, will never say anything even remotely anti-Giants because that would piss off Emperor Larry Baer who rules the day.
Baer is the biggest phony in the world, a guy who likes to appear as if he's Mr. Fuzzy but in reality is about as fun as three colonoscopies in a month.
*Kuiper, by the way, still sounded bitter on the Knibber air Thursday Morning, maybe he was sick of listening to the 40,000 commercials while waiting on hold, DUDE!
*Fire and Ice: Vida Blue and Mike Krukow.
*Here's the deal about Ronnnnnn: The Cumulus guys would dearly love for him to retire gracefully Dec. 31 (After the election) but Ronn doesn't know what to do with his life and wants to get out of the house.
Should be an interesting 90 days around Broadway and Battery.
