An Item and Three Spots; 415 Media Mush; Thursday Liners
THOSE NEW TRAFFIC AND SPORTS STRINGERS on KCBS sound perfectly DREADFUL...enough to create major friction through the ranks. Supposedly, even Stan Bunger and his friends are infuriated and I agree Stanley, it really sounds like shit...especially the overnight guy who couldn't get the tag line right ..."next traffic, 12 O Eight..." Blame it all on Les Moonves ...An asshole is an asshole: Chef Ryan Scott, a virtual tool; the head asshole cheerleader for the brown-nose KGO Radio/Cumulus sycophants who KILLED RADIO IN SAN FRANCISCO. Scott's buddy, Ronn Owens, is his chief enabler; it was Ronnnnnnnn who told Justin Wittmayer, head of the SF Cumulus gestapo, "how awesome Ryan would be." That was a few years back when Ronnie and Ryan used to "hang out" so Ronn could tell his North Beach friends he was hip. Ronnn likes to "hang" with assholes like Scott and "Copie" so he can think it was 1980 again....IS THIS A SURPRISE? Ronn's other NY "buddy", Bill O'Reilly. Maybe they can both share "while we were separated stories." In O'Reilly's case, divorce...By the way, This Just In: O'Reilly has a new sponsor: Ashley Madison...KRON is about to get a pink-slip safari from Nextstar --they're already doing their deeds at other stations...That free-lance sports guy that took Dave Lewis' gig at KCBS is a well-known press box gossip monger--if he got paid by the amount of times he spoke behind people's back he'd be Bill Gates with a microphone...Dear Jack Swanson: It's good to know you hire people that are well-qualified and capable of doing a job as opposed to people that used to be at KGO when you were there...I was waiting today (Thursday) for Susan Leigh Taylor to tell us "on my way into the city from Pacifica" I saw mist on my windshield." She never disappointed...Damon Bruce and friends: Entercom is going to sell off 95.7 FM 'The Game' --probably a music station that we need as much as O'Reilly needs 21 year-old blond interns...They played the "R and B Joke Hour" at Gitmo and the entire prison population sang like birds...Mike Anthony: seriously, how the hell do you keep the gig? Wait a minute--how'd you get it in the first place?!! ...Greg Papa: Silver and Black sellout. About as mellow as having a wet dream about the Bay Area Sports guy...John Lund: sperm wasted...Chip Franklin: about as interesting and compelling as doing a #2 at the Van Ness Chevron at midnight...Brian Copeland: Yeah, you were so into the Black community that all 3 of your ex-wives are white...Copeland: Steve McPartlin was right...for a change.
