They Stink To High Heaven

Image result for It Smells To High Heaven   KTVU --"The Nine": An absolute embarrassment --fingers on the chalkboard times 20 --really, more like a TV version of a radio morning zoo only less civil and interesting, not very entertaining and chock full of garbage features and hosts an hostesses acting dumb and treating the audience like shit. Gasia Mikaelian is helpless; she has no boundaries. Sal Castaneda and Mike Mibach should know better but have been kidnapped by Fox's "The Firm" infiltrators.

Image result for Don Ford KPIX*Don Ford/KPIX: How did this guy make it on TV? Was there a contest at 'PIX to find the most boring man ever to appear on TV News? Ford is painful to watch. His personality is slightly more exciting than a piece of day-old rye bread. KPIX must think they have some sort of irreverent wise guy but in reality Ford might as well be some local yahoo with a microphone and camera. Oh, and the baseball cap makes him look even more dumber than he already is.

In fact, she adds zero and is so much a lightweight the mayor of SF doesn't take her seriously.

Melanie Woodrow
*Heather Holmes: The Four/KTVU: Holmes is supposed to be some 'sexy' model-like anchor with brains but truly she has ZERO personality and she dresses like she's going clubbin' --it's not sexy at all unless you're watching 'House Wives of Yuba City."



*Melanie Woodrow/KGO (ABC7) What does this melba toast stick figure add? NOTHING. She's cold, sullen, bizarre and empty. Melanie, lighten up and smile. Your personality comes across as zilch --and another thing: just what do you investigate anyway?

*Darya Folsom/KRON: The banana caper that was a MAJOR dud is still causing industry-wide embarrassment for KRON just when you thought that was impossible but Countess Darya made it all happen with a stunt that would have been laughed off in a high-school gong-show contest. Darya will do anything, anything, for attention because she lacks self-esteem and people skills and doesn't know shit about news anchoring. She's on TV because....well, you know why.

*Brian Hackney/KPIX: Look, it would be one thing if you were good and pompous. But you're simply arrogant and a schmuck. And truly, Hack, we don't give a shit how much you know about science. You're on PIX for God's sake --the station that hires new reporters from Fresno about as frequent as a dog doing a #1 at the SF Zoo. Get a hold of yourself.

Kenny Choi
*Kenny Choi/KPIX: what an impact you've made! I mean, there's not a day I walk around town and hear people say: "God, did you see that Choi on the TV this morning?!!" Kenny, I assume you already bought Dano a $500 gift certificate from Nordstrom. He could buy a shirt and take Roberta for margaritas after hours.

    Try catching a whiff of Gasia after 2 hours at El Pollo Loco. I sat in back of her, and she peeled the tile off the floor with her rips.

  3. Could Don Ford be the station's answer to the departed Mike Sugarman??? Kinda keeping in the mold of Mike Hegedus. Ok, I realize that's going back a few years. :)

  4. Gasia, Sal, and Mike aren't feeling any pain in that picture!

  5. Rich, you disappointed me. What about Roberta!?!?!? I love to hate in her, and I thought you did too. I guess you either ran out of room on your page or you were called to dinner.

  6. There's nothing there in Bay Area media. Better to avoid watching TV and listening to the radio.

  7. I noticed that the well-respected Wayne Freedman on KGO - no hating here, just an observation - has suddenly started identifying himself at the end of his report at a Hegedus-level slow pace. He had finished his segments at a normal pace until the past few months.
    RL may be finding bashing pointless in the case of RG, DR, Trixie, Pero, and the Bentley. Ratings and Emmys in two stations' cases, and complete fear by the highers up in the third station's case are probably why the bashing is useless.

  8. Dan Ford and Hackney on the air prove that ANYONE can get a TV gig. When I first saw Ford, I thought it was a joke. Maybe he had won a one minute of fame contest.

  9. I disagree The Nine on KTVU is a bad newscast. What else is better to watch to get local news besides KRON 4, solid news, avoid Darya probably going to eat an apple next time on LIVE TV. I found KPIX 5 and KGO 7 morning news terrible with bad LIVE anchors and nothing worth watching. KPIX made the worst choice firing Frank with Kenny matching with Michelle, turn to KGO 7 and another bad choice of new reporters except Jessica who deserve more if place during evening news hours than morning. And, putting their ads to promote their news throughout the entire daily newscast shows how bad is KGO 7 taste trying to grab viewer putting reporters personal lives all over the station ads.

    As for Heather Holmes, the weather gals on KRON 4, Jacky, Diane and the current one, the way their dress....pretty R-Rated for a 5 year old to watch when news does not have any TV ratings. Most of these sexy reporters always wear the same dress over and over, I notice Heather wears a blue dress if you watch is pretty over the TV limit for news.

    Overall, I will stick with KTVU for high quality news.

  10. I hacked into KRON. The password? "When the hell will Radnich that big dumb overpaid sumbitch leave?" Try it.

  11. Give Melissa Daria's personality- bada boom. You have a hit.

  12. The only thing worse than wearing "cocktail dresses" to do the news or weather is when most of them are about 10-15 lbs away from actually fitting into them.

  13. Melanie Woodrow is a very good reporter. What her breasts aren't big enough?

  14. Interesting I noticed that KRON TV hired Tiffany McElroy (where at one time she did WPIX TV in NYC) to do morning news...she is a cool calm collective anchor and will definitely give Daria a wake up call...Tiffany is an excellent at what she does!

  15. Everytime I hear or read about Heather Holmes I'm brought back to her snot sucking video.

  16. The easiest way to enjoy a Ford piece is to imagine he's the same helpful guy that sold you a lawn mower last week at the home improvement store.

  17. Look at it on the bright side, none of the above can possibly suck any more then Chip and Ethan. It's just not possible. And this is without them even being seen every day !!!

  18. Thanks for posting a Heather Holmes pic....she is"sexy", which is rare in the Bay Area. Love the women in the LA market.

  19. Where did Tiffany McElroy go? She hasn't been on in awhile now...I just read that Mark Danon left for Arizona, funny I didn't miss him....
