*Jan Wahl: Definitely an Oy vey. Just when you thought her movie reviews couldn't get any more schmaltzy, Jan finds a way. Yentyl on KCBS, pass the seltzer.
*Pam Cook: Certifiable Mazel Tov to the max. The KTVU morning anchor displays a rare form of civility and tranquility all the while delivering the news bright-eyed and chock full of professionalism and grace. Too bad one of her colleagues can't follow Cook's model.
*Chef Ryan Scott: It's an all-time oy vey festival with this pompous, self-righteous schmuck with all the serenity of a Daly City McDonalds. I cringe every time I hear this bozo on the air --I'd much rather listen to KGO's taped real-estate shows than this guy who is Ronnnnnn's buddy. Birds of a feather...
*Elizabeth Cook: I know, you're shocked that this KPIX anchor is mazel tov embedded but I have warmed up to Cook who seems more cool and relaxed and does a fine job reading the news. I get the fact she got the gig because dad is connected but so what, Cook seems genuine and professional --something lacking in today's TV News genre and that counts big in my book.
*Rocqui Theus: The PIX Traffic anchor couldn't be any more beautiful and gorgeous to look at but my God, listening to her reports, I'm thinking, this is the best you got, PIX? Oy vey!
*Frank Somerville: Frank has often been the subject of mass ridicule here mostly because of his Facebook views, but guess what? I like Somerville on KTVU and someone who can read like Frank and has hung around the hall like Frank has must be doing something right and therefore, Frank gets a heaving portion of mazel tov. Frank: It's not a love fest just yet but it's damn near close.
*Ross Palombo: Just when I was getting positive...along comes King Oy vey. Keep tightening up the jacket too, looks so great. Quick question: Do you still have the pictures?
*Paul Deanno: It's not easy forecasting weather and making it look cool, calm, relaxed, and oh by the way, accurate. Deanno knows his place on the menu and doesn't mess it up with some messy fondue, therefore is qualified for immense Mazel Tovs from Big Vinny.
*Roberta Gonzales: You're supposed to become more wise and agile as you age, a little comfort factor settles in. I don't know what's happened to Roberta who I used to like a lot back yesteryear when she didn't have to put on the Miss Mary Ann act. Roby: you got the gig, it's yours! Quit treating us like we're schoolchildren, we're not! And yes, I know it's all genuine and sincere; you really are that, but that ain't working anymore. You can be all enthusiastic and gleeful just don't rub it in our face otherwise you'll be in the Oy vey Hall of Fame.
*Ama Daetz: the epitome of grace and class --and can read the news with just the right amount of seriousness, when necessary, and joy, when it's merited --it was never going to be easy to replace Carolyn Johnson but KGO found a way with Daetz who has made for a smooth transition and works very well with Dan Ashley. Mazel tov, A.D.
*Gary Radnich: Treats the TV gig like he was going to the refrigerator to get some ice cream , eats it, then goes to sleep. Raddy could fake it every now and then and pretend he's giving it all he got but is too consumed with his ego and thinks he's still king of the market. Of course he got that take due to alternative facts. Oy vey!
