SATURDAY NEWS AND NOTES...
Five straight days of blue skies and sunshine which is driving Bill Martin, Roberta Gonzales and Spencer Christian nuts.
Weather people have this enormous ego problem, it's all about them, them, them..!
I'm half-kidding but knowing most of them they really like the extra air time. And that's just fine but please, before the drought when it was the same weather pattern day after day KTVU's Martin looked silly with that "WeatherAUTHORITY!" graphic behind him. Absurdity really. At least now there's something to talk about. Finally.
*Just a hunch: Juliette Goodrich will probably leave KPIX and head to another local station. My best guess is that PIX doesn't want to pay her and just takes her for granted and Jules will end up somewhere else and become the major talent she should have been at 855 Battery but his highness wouldn't step to the plate because he's simply incapable --unless it involves obscure talent from Hawaii. Kenny Choi, Betty Yu? Yeah, that's just genius talent that nobody in the Bay Area watches nor cares.
*This is my issue with Jon Bristow --it would be nice if he didn't sound like an FM DJ about to let loose with some Top 40 tunes...Bristow has, as we've described here, great "pipes", a booming, baritone voice but he could soften the pitch and apply to the fact he's doing AM News on KCBS and not AOR --it would sound a lot better and that's the truth. You can do it Jon.
