IF YOU have it tough at the office it could be worse; you can be at KCBS --the all-news 740 AM powerhouse --a scene of tranquility --until now.
I'm told there's a genuine unease amongst staff about impending layoffs and cutbacks once Entercom takes over from CBS in the coming months.
A senior air talent told me there's a inevitability of cuts coming "because that's what happens when a new company takes over. It's just the way it is, I've seen a lot of these."
What a great business.
*I can't count how many new reporters there are at KPIX --too many which suggests there's a lot of mediocrity at 855 Battery. It's a cesspool of melba toast and spam correspondents and anchors. About time for another Hawaiian anchor hire, that's working out well these days.
*Repeat report: Dear Vern Glenn: STOP the Radnich mannerisms; the pregnant pauses; the shifting of the copy; the eyes dropping; Gary is a tired BORE. He's Don Rickles in a Louis C.K. era. Vern, you keep doing Gary then you'll be destined for Akron any day now.
*Is there a day on his KNBR sports radio show/commercial quagmire, that the Raddy doesn't mention "if you have a family" bullshit? What a complete hypocrite --a boring one at that who talks more shit than a horse buggy at Golden Gate Fields.
*The most powerful man in Hayward: former KGO-TV reporter/anchor, Jim Wieder.
*Hey KTVUer Mike Mibach, that was fun watching you this morning hitting on that bartender during The Nine. OK, I'll agree, she was sort of hot. About a firm 7.
*I can't quite place it but there's something quite unique about Tara Moriarty --sort of a beauty and brains persona with added texture.
*The mildew known as people being interviewed on the radio who begin their sentence with ..." so..." is fast approaching a pandemic.
*Unscientific survey: more women then men can't stand Gasia Mikaelian. It's the phony persona mainly and assorted other grotesque images projected by Countess Gasia.
