In fact, Bristow's baritone voice has been belting out of the CBS Building lately--on the weekend morning, middle of the night, and drive time both morning and afternoon.
If you've listened to KCBS this week, Bristow has been filling in for veteran Stan Bunger.
Bristow is likely to inherit Bunger's job when Stan calls it quits any day now.
He's got the CBS model down and he is well regarded by ex-KGO boss, Jack Swanson, who was responsible for his stint at 855 Battery. Timing is everything.
*Ronn Owens lectured his KGO audience the other morning: "Get over it!" --Owens was discussing Congressman John Lewis's decision to snub the Trump inauguration (along with a growing list of Democrats) It wasn't so much that Owens disagreed with Lewis it's his annoying, pedantic patronizing --and once again, his callers called him out on the air. Of course, "Mr Softie" lived up to his reputation --the man who called Donald Trump a joke for almost two years is now practically bowing at his feet.
*Two big names at KGO-TV and some flopper at KRON had a heated exchange in the garage at 900 Front the other day. It wasn't war but it was loud enough to be overheard across the street. Hey guys, life is short, don't sweat the small stuff. Parking place territorial feuding apparently en fuego.
