  1. What happened to Radnich? Is he on vacation? I haven't seen him on KRON for more than a week??

  2. Is Henry Wooford planning to take some of Radnich's air time or is he doing weekends?

    1. He's doing regular fill-in and Raiders/49ers football shows during the upcoming season.

  4. Hi Rich,

    If KGO Radio went up for sale what would be a ballpark figure on the asking price? I'm starting to save to buy the station and get it back on track.

    1. I have ZERO idea on a number but I would guess in the millions given its 50K-watt status and dial position ...AM radio and all.

    2. Yes, about 1-million pesos.

    1. I like Tyra Banks but I wonder if she dropped "nt" from her name.

  6. Have you had a chance to view the presentation that honored Bill King during this year's Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony?

    1. No but I will eventually --I have written several pieces on Bill King and grew up listening to him do Raiders, Warriors and A's games. He was and IS the BEST ever.

    Any chance the Long Beach Diva will come back to radio?

    1. I assume you're talking about Christine Craft and while I have personal issues with CC , I do like her talk show skills --most of the time. She's not doing KGO much anymore other than fill-in and even there it's been awhile.

      Thanks, Rich! I was mainly referring to Karel.

      Delete
    3. I prefer CC's bosom myself, not Karel's.

      Delete
    4. I'm sure CC has less goofy tattoos...

      Delete
    5. Thanks for the partially kind words,Rich. I know we disagree about Mr. Netanyahu. In any event, I disconnected the ISDN line a year and a half ago. I still have no tattoos, and a lovely bosom.

      Delete
    6. I complimented Christine on a bosomy picture once on Facebook but she never responded. I find her very attractive myself. Always have.

  8. Hey Rich, in terms of the morning news ratings, how do they rate? Myself, I'm now following CNN for my daily dose of Trump bashing.

    1. KTVU and the rest just holding on...it's been that way for quite a while now. KRON has tried but still miles away.

    2. Saw a newscast from Houston the other day. Unlike here, They (3) actually looked happy. Quite refreshing to see. Reminds me of 30-35 years ago.

  9. Hi Rich: Regarding your story last week of who might be next on the KNBR Sports Talk Show host chopping block you wrote the putrid 1-3 pm Vomit/Giggle Fest AKA asthe "Fitz & Brooks" Show may be safe as it is paid for by a corporate sponser. You're absolutely right Rich-I happen to be AM radio channel surfing yesterday around 2:30 pm & I caught Rod Brooks saying the Fitz & Brooks show is brought to you by a South Bay trade union(not sure of the exact title but it may be San Jose & Santa Clara intl brotherhood of electrical or construction workers.) Was that what you were referring to? Is that the sole reason why this total crap fest of a sports talk show is still polluting the KNBR airwaves? Cary SF

    1. I'm not a hundred percent sure but I heard the Warriors pay for 1-3 PM on KNBR...I could be wrong.

  10. Rich, What is the obsession with getting to the LA market? If you making good money in market 4-20 what do you gain by heading to LA?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I guess market #2 and Hollywood have a way of seducing people, my best guess.

      Delete
    2. Even better money...

      Delete
  11. What have you heard about layoffs at KPIX? Rumors are swirling.

    ReplyDelete
  12. What will Arthur Chavez do now that he's been fired from Sportsphone 680?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. As some people have mentioned he's got family money so he's not starving plus I'm sure he got a decent severance...I assume 95.7 FM would be interested but I'm not sure.

      Delete
    2. Bring Ray back on any station anytime. Was thinking today it would be good to hear Wattenburg back on the air for a bit during these difficult political times.

  13. How do you predict the Bill O'Reilly saga will turn out? Will he have a big comeback, or is his career dead?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Probably surface on some third-tier network and/or do a podcast but I won't be watching or listening to the windbag.

      Delete
    2. Bill O'Reilly already has a podcast, he is on Glenn Beck's show (KSFO 9 to 12, or 650 am 6 to 9 pm) every Friday night for an hour, not sure if it is the same time every Friday, but I have heard him several times, I usually leave work after 9 p.m. and have over an hour commute. I actually don't mind his analysis of current events, for an hour, since there is much else on at that hour I listen, certainly better then reruns of Bearman.

  14. Is there any chance that KNBR give Paulie Mac his walking papers? I can take Murph, but Mac is sickening.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Why didn't you call out BART for suggesting that Bay Area media would be racist if BART released surveillance video of recent flash mob attacks on passengers?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't "call out" BART ...it's not my gig. I write media. Maybe you should look at the mast head.

  18. When is the Entercom and CBS merger going to be completed?

    1. Before the end of the year but sometimes these things are delayed.

  19. How much longer can 95.7 The Game hang on?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Is Matt Pinfield gone for good from KFOG?

    ReplyDelete
  21. It seems like the local Television stations all have dozens of reporters contributing stories for newscasts. How can they afford all these reporters? Are they contracted per report rather than salaried?

    ReplyDelete
  22. When did the KCBS sports dept decide to integrate replays during sports. Am I the only one who finds it annoying? And do we need sports at 15 AND 45? Or weather "on the 8's"?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The one who does sports early on the morning, 4:45, 5:15 is the wordiest bore out there. Too many superlatives and scores and highlights from games no one around here cares about, Toronto, Minnesota?

  23. Rich,

    I'm sure you can hear the KPIX hens clucking about Katie Nielson... How long before they commence to pecking?

    Sincerely,
