KTVU Newsroom Steamed Over Palombo Vegas Debate Assignment; Heather Holmes MisDirection Illustrates Fox Hen House Incompetence

Heather Holmes and Ross Palombo
 From my Fox2 spy: they're still fuming in the KTVU newsroom because station suits (read: Fox buttheads) sent human joke, Ross Palombo to Vegas to cover the last presidential debate--No Rob Roth or Tom Vacar, both senior reporters..and now you know why Randy Shandobil left Channel 2 much earlier than anticipated

*Heather Holmes, the station star diva who is telling friends that she wants to be a "serious TV News journalist" is being used all over various time slots, much to the chagrin of veteran staffers, including Holmes herself.

Source: "they literally don't know where to put her! They just keep moving her here and there."

A competent news operation would have someone at the top cease such ridiculous behavior.

I'm not a fan of Holmes; I think she's mostly style over substance and way overrated --that said, if KTVU thinks so highly of her and apparently they do, then they should place her somewhere, maybe 5 o'clock?, and keep her there permanently --but that would require an act of leadership and direction, something foreign at the Oakland Fox hen house.

  1. They sent Ross Palombo to cover the presidential debate because he specializes in political news. So stop complaining Rich. If KTVU sent those old fogies, they probably would forget what they were covering due to their Alzheimer.

      5:29, you shut your hole. Got a problem? See my lawyer, Gloria Craft.

    2. The suits at Fox don't do stuff like this for the unconnected. He's got deep roots somewhere in the power structure back east, probably in Florida which is generally a conservative part of the world except for Miami-Dade. He's one of them.

    3. He does not specialize in political news. He's a Special Investigations Unit (aka, Segment 2) reporter, and that in itself is a joke. KTVU currently has no permanent political report, and that in itself is a joke. Of course, KTVU is in itself a joke.

  6. Move Heather Holmes to the Nine she is unwatchable reading the news. They had a good political expert in the am Joe Tuman come as a guest after the debate too bad he is not a regular.

  8. Can'take stand either of them, both unwatchable. Outside of MO2 for weather I stopped watching KTVU altogether. Used to watch just for Ken Wayne but they've buried him somewhere. Having viewers is not the goal of television. How do they make any money.

  10. Why all the hen house hate? Some hen homes are well-managed and actually have happy hens these days. And at least you get eggs or meat out of them. So comparing KTVU to a hen house does nothing but insult the hen house.

  11. looks like ''the warriors'' lost the key to the Bentley and drove to arena in a camry- too much hoo-hah celebrating and Olympics and media appearances...?does the ''bay area'' have too much celebrations, memorials,unveiling of statues, ring ceremonies...everyone so partied out and celebratory and back slapping of this or that accomplishment. no one wants to go out on the field or court--who wants to shoot baskets and defend after chillin' with the pope?

    1. @3:59 - your rant sounds like some drunken Charles Bukowski stream of consciousness poem, and I use term "consciousness" very loosely after reading it.
