415 Media Exclu: Roqui Theus Leaving KPIX 'Morning Show'; Changes in April

Image result for KPIX Morning Show  I'VE TOLD YOU about troubles involving the KPIX Morning Show--a program beset with low ratings, uninspired talent and questionable direction. Not to mention a traffic anchor who is clearly beautiful to watch but can't cut it when she broadcasts.

Changes are coming to the CBS-SF morning program and from a source close to the action, it appears one change is imminent: Roqui Theus is all but gone.

Theus wasn't on the show both Thursday and this (Friday) morning in what may be a signal to her status. My source says she's leaving the program in April. It appears everyone else is safe, for now.

Michelle Griego is close to signing a new deal (if she hasn't already) as I predicted but not at the deal she was longing for.

Theus was seen as a bright, new, energetic personality with loads of potential but she was incapable of reporting without mispronouncing street and highway names, constantly flubbing her lines, and never living up to performing as basic a function as providing traffic updates for Bay Area viewers.

No word on who will replace her but PIX is searching around the globe.

Let's be clear too. Theus is not the only reason for the Morning Show troubles. Combine a lack of chemistry amongst the players; outsized egos; questionable direction and overall incompetence --other than that, it's a winner.

  1. Theus is an idiot. If you don't know the area and can't pronounce street names, you have zero excuse to be on the job. Have some respect for where you work. She'll probably land somewhere doing a TV magazine show, if they still exist, or finding a gig that doesn't require a lot of brain power. Good luck and don't go away mad, just go away.

    1. Damn it feels good to actually be able to post at this website. Poor Stanley. Fear not, there's a new Observer in town.

    2. Only thing she did right ... would say the drive times, 20 Miles PER Hour. Not like others, Miles AN Hour

    3. Wow, thought men weren't suppose to hit women. Yet, you go by anonymous and call someone you don't know an idiot. Get a life moran!

  2. Okay, apparently Savage's book is on the new NY Times list, I was wrong, my apologies...still can't stand Savage though.

  3. I haven't watched KPIX a.m. news for at least a year. BTW, this is TV, a visual medium. Just to check on the local news shows there is a noticeable presence of personalities who could lose some weight. This isn't just a KPIX issue.

  4. I wonder then, if Roqui can't pronounce words, how she got through high school let alone college. I'm pretty sure English is her first language. KPIX should really take a hard look at the person who hired her.

    1. 10:50...She was born and raised in L.A. and is a real life glaring example of what the "No Child Left Behind" educational program produces, uneducated Americans!

      No student fails anymore, be it High school or College. They just get passed along, grade after grade and eventually receive a diploma.

      Never forgot the young lady I met a few years back, she had a CA public school system High school diploma. She couldn't subtract 16 from 21 mentally, she had to count on her fingers...true story!

      The "No Child Left Behind" system "is" leaving children behind, uneducated ones!

      Rocqui Theus just lost an extremely good job!!

    2. When you look like that you don't have to know Math. Guess you didn't get the memo.

    4. Roqui was great! She brought personality to a boring morning crew of KPIX.

  5. Brilliant hire by the news director. Too bad he can't be fired.

  6. She is clueless and I stopped watching once Frank Mallicoat left. The show is an embarrassment. They need some new leaders over there. Kenny and Michelle have zippo chemistry and Roberta needs to go bye bye with that awful voice. She talks to viewers as if we are stupid!

  7. Earlier this week, Lisa B. Was doing the traffic. I realize she isn't a hot piece of you know what, but she makes a nice appearance and does a nice job reporting on the traffic, and she's a local girl. How can Michelle be blamed for bad ratings? Two words...Kenny and Roberta. I just don't get her. She just plain sucks!!!

  8. Who is doing traffic in Honolulu?.. Get that person here tomorrow.

  9. Could have had George Rask. Man knows traffic, but yes I know, wrong sex, wrong color and wrong age. I guess in a way Kpix and those idiots AT kron did him a favor. He's working for a company up in Oregon and though he does miss doing traffic for all these years, He's liking the new challenge. BTW is anyone still watching the morning news on any station? After George got cut from KRON, that was it for me. Yes he's a good friend. Thanks.

  10. Bring George Rask back, the man has game!!

  11. Hmmmmmmm... Someone kept saying, she'd have ALL the time to get the job right.

  12. Shouldn't Michelle be let go? Even if the station deduct her salary in half, still no point of keeping her seeing their ratings to the lowest digits. Time to find a replacement for Kenny and Michelle.

    My suggestion: Brian as a permanent morning anchor and Maria Medina as the female anchor.

  13. Good Day Sacramento needs a new face, she once worked there and she fits all the check marks...

  14. This hire reflects poorly on management. After one month if you still can't pronounce streets, roads and names of cities correctly; than you must go. They gave her a year, no improvement. and now a stained image

    1. Didn't even give her a year. Just 9 months.

  15. Rocqui Theus just sounds so childish -- I always expect her to gasp "golly, gee whiz!" whenever there's a traffic accident. Roberta Gonzales' breathless delivery of the weather report used to make me think I'd inadvertently tuned into "Romper Room", but now the traffic report is even worse. I don't want anyone to get fired, I just wish they'd all grow up. Michelle & Kenny are indeed boring, but at least they speak like adults.

  16. KPIX has so totally mucked up so many of their news shows. How Roberta manages to keep her job is one of the great mysteries. Surely management must know how she grates on peoples' nerves. The CBS This Morning with Charley Rose and company is my must-watch tv and I've gotten really adept at hitting the mute button on my remote whenever they say, "and now time for your local weather"

    And, they totally mucked up the Sunday morning news show by letting Ann Macovick go and replacing her with Maria
    Medina, so I don't have that to enjoy any more. The blond twit who does the weather on that show is almost as obnoxious as Roberta Gonzales.

    Brain Hackney and Ann Makovik are the two best on-air people they have and are both woefully underused.

    I think I feel better for having ranted. I think.

  17. Brian Hackney seems to be able to fill in when needed as well as Ann Makovek and both seem to do it with much gusto. I am a loyal KPIX morning watcher while I get ready for work and have breakfast. It is my comfort zone and I guess I accept the news team like you accept family. I don't like to go hear and there as long as I get what I need as far as weather and traffic and just highlights of news local and otherwise. So maybe the management will eventually get together a snap crackle and pop.

  18. Let's be honest. No Lawrence. No Frank. No fun. Does anyone ever watch anymore? If it wasn't for RG nobody would.
