We're happy to report that KGO senior weekend anchor and reporter, Eric Thomas, is BACK at 900 Front. Healthy and happy too, at least for now.
Thomas has been away from the Circle7 news biz for almost a month --he took a medical leave --I had my own theory.
A source close to Thomas told me just now that the official reason was that Thomas has been battling blood pressure issues and the fluctuation wasn't good.
I'll bet that the high blood pressure issue was dictated by Thomas' battle with KGO's upper mgt desire he be more "social media active."
Like other stations these days, KGO has become ultra gung-ho on its web site promos; its Twitter and Facebook presence --to a point where that facet is more important than the worker themselves!
Oh dear lord.
In any event, we are happy that Eric Thomas is back in the saddle and working his gig for Channel 7. He'll be back anchoring on Saturday night.
