415 Media Mid-Day Deli Nosh

Image result for old guy eating in SF Deli *I'm hot and cold with Brian Hackney; if you've read me over the years he's both annoyed me and intrigued me. I have no issue with his weather acumen and he sure as heck seems to know what he's talking about. It's sometimes when he veers off the road and thinks he reciting Russian literature, in a figurative manner. That said, I do, overall, appreciate his work for the most part.

*Inside, Inside baseball: if you aim to screw with me then you better have all your shit down because I don't trust anybody but one.

*Remember, Fox News Corp doesn't mess with KTVU News; oh, sure, they own the station and have altered the operation but as for meddling the product and overtly (or even covertly) they really don't get involved in the news-gathering end.

*A caller on Ronn Owens KGO show on Wednesday called Ronn a "weasel." Ronn laughed ...and laughed. "Weasel? --'I'm a weasel?'" The caller was ripping Owens over his mass simpleton summation of Donald Trump's press conference. Amazing that Owens, who lampooned him for the past 18 months is now almost Trump sanguine. The Voice of Reason has attacked again!

*Every rightwing radio station/outlet amen corner member thought the Trump presser (ouch) was just a knock-it-out-of-the-park performance ...until we get hit. (God forbid)

*They're making hay/at a certain KPIX  talent who likes to hawk her jewelry --on air! no less. The same jewelry she apparently gets gratis, maybe PIX should talk to her and tell her that's kinda tacky.

*KNBR running Giants' promos in January. 'Nuff said. Or as my media sage says, "The Giants are KNBR's KOIT Christmas music." Well stated.

  1. I tweeted Kate Scott asking her if I was close about Radnich being a pain to work with. She did not Tweet back. No, "He's a great guy".
    I notice over the years..nobody who knows the guy lifts a finger to defend him.
    Yes,I have him pegged.

    1. I'm shocked! SHOCKED! that she didn't respond to a tweet from Stan. Does anyone in local media?

      I have Stan pegged.

    2. Sure,many do. Stanley Roberts Larry Beil..most of KGO,some of KTVU,most kntv people are up to a tweet. I get the cold shoulder from KRON other then Roberts and Will Tran I should say.
      Hey,its all there on my Tweet page. Cant make this up.
      I'm a bridge builder..not wall maker.

    3. Will Tran is a serious time bomb. Check out his grumpy faces in that ridiculous raincoat

    5. "I'm a bridge builder..not wall maker."

      Some people deserved to be walled off. Are you in that category, Stan?

    6. So,I more then come back with media names..and the trolls of KNBR write in something about category's and grumpy faces.
      I dont see even the interns that work around Radnich writing what he's done for them. Just the opposite..they've posted about he and Vern being jerks at KRON.Look it up.
      I've got the guy down pat. He knows it and just spent 20 minutes on Arron Pero's KRON doing repair to his rotten image.
      Its what he's said over the years that has EARNED my efforts- Rich's writings too as we all know.He's not undeserving.
      Parks in handicapped spots..low life.
      Tonight Radnich claimed all his former anchors loved him. And there we all see Shipp- just like the woman before her- want not part of Radnich. He never explains that.
      Radnich still has his job? He says that says all?
      Well,Trump is president too. What does that say?
      I will keep fighting for the better media..world.

    7. Speaking of Tweet world. You know who are especially good at it with a funny sense of humor? Matt Keller at KGO7 and Leigh Martinez at KTVU.
      Others are good to answer tweets also. Steve at 2,Will and Stanley of 4,Rob has great weather info on KNTV. Lisa Argen is very good at giving you an answer or opinion. Mike Nicco surprised me.. I thought for sure he wouldn't answer..but he does. Drew is good for an answer also.
      I know I had to have left some out..but I guess for another day.

    8. Mike Shuman! Ama Daetz!..see? I knew I would remember names later. Now I feel bad that i can never remember them all at one time. Shu is good tweet sports guy along with Beil.

  2. Seriously???

    Scott ignored "Stan TheObserver's" tweet. That's supposed to mean something???

  3. Rich, can you do a survey of your readers as to WHO they watch for weather and WHO seems to be most accurate in their forecast?

    I watched KRON and KTVU last weekend and they both gave varying reports with their "timelines" of when we would and would not have rain over our part of San Jose/Cupertino. It was completely different. I found KTVU's forecast to be lacking in my particular situation. How about everyone else?

    1. I would think that most forecasters get their info from the same places - NOAA, Nat'l Weather Service and some broadcast subscription site or something like that. I would think the only difference is in the graphic and broadcast presentation and what they choose to select or not.

    1. Stan's a typical liberal know-it-all.

    2. That's from two guys who know nothing. Plenty of them like that.
      Now the trolls are down to "Its bad Stan is always right and its bad he notices pretty woman"..that's not much for me to feel bad about!
      Next troll rip is "Stan likes puppy's"..Oh,terrrrible!

  6. It's comforting to know now that all the screw-ups at KTVU do not originate with Fox News Corp. They originate locally.

  8. Don't want to hear about baseball or kruk and kuibe until Apr 1. Season is too long already. We have NFL and NCAA tourney then they can wake up.

  9. Like the KGO caller said, Owens has been phoning it in for years. It's obvious that he watches way too to much Fox News. You can't know the facts if those facts are coming from Fox and the Drudge Report.
    He stopped reading books years ago and became intellectually lazy.

    1. Intellectually lazy...LOL. Are you sure you're not referring to Democrat voters? That's funny. Adjust your meds.

    2. Tell me Ronnnnn doesn't watch Fox News. On his show this morning he just told John Bolton(WTF) that Obama is doing everything he can to make the transition difficult for Trump.
      He's become nothing but a right-wing fool.

  10. Rich, I know that Ronn Owens can do no right, in your eyes. But, consider that a skilled talk-show host presents his/her points of view in a manner that will attract callers from VARYING point of view to the program. Otherwise, you'll have the monologues of the "recent" KKSF, or the "Ditto Head," responses to Rush Limbaugh.

    It doesn't take a genius to figure out what the overwhelming view of the upcoming administration is, in the Bay Area.

    In toning down the daily disgust that so many of us feel, I think that you can make a convincing job that Ronn's doing his job.

    1. Do you need a time-out to tone down? Maybe a safe place or a participation trophy as well? We don't want you triggered.

  11. I haven't listened to KNBR recently, but perhaps one of their reasons for currently running Giants promos is the team's Fan Fest (that is held in the Winter). If I recall correctly, KNBR usually broadcasts from that event, and the team begins its upcoming season's ticket sales on that day as well.

  12. Ronn Owens a weasel? More like a wimp and pansy.

  13. Re: A caller on Ronn Owens KGO show on Wednesday called Ronn a "weasel." Ronn laughed ...and laughed. "Weasel? --'I'm a weasel?'" The caller was ripping Owens over his mass simpleton summation of Donald Trump's press conference.

    In Ronn's defense, that bizarre press conference was hard to believe that a near-future POTUS would behave like that, have to address those allegations, let alone to summarize. I'm thinking Ronn was just waving his hands in the air to try make it go away, just didn't want to start-up another Trump bashing session on KGO, so ignored the un-American, anti-Christian, and anti-family statements made there in favor of a luke-warm "let's wait and see what happens" response.

  14. Reality Check Bay Area Please!January 13, 2017 at 8:39 PM

    Ronn's a moron. He limps around the building and a lot of people don't know who he is. My parents used to be fans and I know other people who were as well, but no one I know is at all aware of what KGO is even doing anymore.

    When they made the "new" lineup switch with people most were unaware of, did the company promote it with a billboard? Were there signs on BART? On Park benches? The internet?

    No. No. No. No.

    Not only does the company not care, but the audience doesn't either (check the ratings). Without KNBR, which I'll admit is awful despite my love of sports, the whole cluster would literally be gone.

    Forget Ronn Owens. It's been over for years. Ask a stranger if they know who he is. Ask a stranger who moved here 10 years ago if they ever heard of the guy. Ask a stranger about Brian Copeland and Ethan Beerman. Ask a stranger about Chip Franklin. No one knows who these people are. No one knows what KGO is. No one cares. Even if I were to blame Cumulus, at some point talent needs to be talent. KGO has no talent.

    Posting about KGO is like arguing now about whether Clinton should have been impeached but yet LESS RELEVANT.

  15. So a caller at KGO called Ronn Owens a "weasel".
    Well, we say that is a label that is richly deserved.
    Let's hear it Ronn, what do you have to say?
    Nothing.
