Scott Reiss Seems Content at KTVU; CNN Stalemate; Mibach Struts His Ego at KTVU; Fosters Resentment; Worse Yet, Puts Ketchup on Hot Dog; Tiffany McElroy at KRON But Why Did She Leave NY?; Darya Pissed; Ronn Owens and Tara Fields; She's a Brunette, Uh Oh; KCBS' Bunger Coasting Which Isn't So Great; Wayne Freedman/ Watkowski Tiff; Monday Mash

Image result for scott reiss IT APPEARS SCOTT REISS either doesn't want to leave the Bay Area or CNN hasn't upped its offer for the KTVU anchor (primarily sports, sometimes news) to split for Atlanta. They're officially at a stalemate --one thing is certain: Reiss has garnered considerable leverage for his next contract at Fox2 --CNN supposedly offered him a three-year deal worth north of a million dollars which in Atlanta buys you a mansion.

Image result for ktvu the nine*Speaking of KTVU, with Sal Castaneda fetching for more money and the morning diva out of control seems there's a mini chaos on the set of 2's horrid, "The Nine" --industry spies tell me Mike Mibach, one of the wretched three, is suddenly strutting his ego and making little people behind the scenes squirm. "He's a fucking asshole and a demanding one at that", a senior staffer tells me. Mibach does have quite an ego but much more suited for Akron and not the Bay Area. Worse yet, Mibach puts ketchup on a hotdog, what a schmuck!

Image result for Tiffany McElroy KRON*OK, I'm smitten: Tiffany McElroy, the new KRON morning anchor only I'm suspicious --what Big Apple newsreader would leave her NY gig to come to KRON? I've heard about her professional issues in the 212, sure, and the Bay Area is wonderful but KRON? That said, she's beautiful and smart too.

Oh, yeah, you guessed it: Countess Darya is already jealous. Watch out, Tiff.

On the other hand, Darya's asshole BF, didn't make the final call on the McElroy hire which is telling.

Me thinks King Pero influencio might be waning. About time. Meanwhile, KRONvicts are having a mild orgasm.

Dr. Tara Fields --Ronn fav on KGO and...
*So, we all know Ronn Owens like brunettes --his wife is one--and well, he really, really, really, loves this one, pal! Dr. Tara Fields, what do you know? A brunette! How convenient --especially after the show when there's so, so, much free time.

SO MUCH FREE TIME!

*Stan Bunger has been a frequent target here of late; used to love the veteran KCBS radio anchor and said as much only Bunger has somehow lost his radio roots and seems to be coasting now --mailing it in.

Bunger still does a good job but his silly and embarrassing act with Roberta Gonzales --among other acts, is repulsive. And Bunger used to be a decent interviewer, not any more.

Bunger comes across as an ego maniac with a NY attitude. Too bad, because the Alameda resident has built up quite a bit of good will.

Related image*Career rebirth or rejuvenated energy? You be the judge: Kristen Sze at KGO 

*I mentioned the other day that ABC7 veteran/award-winning reporter, Wayne Freedman, had a tiff with ND, the mercurial Tracey Watkowski...this is big news because Freedman, who has considerable clout around 900 Front used to be a firm ally of Watkowski and now even he can't stand her. She still has the support (publically at least) of network bigwig but luck might be running out: the Heather Ishimaru case is nearing closure and KGO's numbers haven't been too robust lately.

  1. Serious question: aside from having loose buttons on her blouse, what is it that makes Tiffany McElroy "beautiful"?

    1. She has a very strong resemblance to Darya, only much hotter than Darya ever was...and I'm guessing Tiff has factory cans while Darya's are clearly aftermarket...maybe Darya's replacement?

      Mibach thinks it's funny when he destroys the KTVU men's room, and comes out yelling "I'm Mike Mibach, Goddamit, and I run this station!".

    3. She is a daring woman and that is "beautiful." Fox (cable) has more "daring" women than I can keep track of and have been #1 in the ratings for 17 years now.

      I'm sure the people who run Fox (cable) would say, "That's beautiful!"

  2. No one is sleeping with Ronn Owens. He looks senile and walks like he's crippled. No offense. Those are just observations.

    Court TV's Lisa Bloom once came on the show for some segment and apparently Ronn hit on her softly while on-air, but then more aggressively during commercials. Her manager called the station and told the PD "she won't be coming back."

    Hasn't been back.

    1. On todays show, Ronn made a comment about Lisa Bloom saying she has no sense of humor. I doubt she's ever coming back.

  3. Why does the new bitch at KRON4 look like Darya Wonder Bra? I mean, they look almost like twin sisters. They do have the Twin Towers. Wonder if they're for real...

    Mibach puts ketchup on his hot dog? That's really digging down deep to get to the bottom to stay on top.

  4. Anny Hong must be as jealous and angry about Tiffany McElroy being at KRON, if not more than Darya.

  6. On the other hand..big raises to:
    Rosemary Orosco.Inside fits the outside.
    Lynne Melendez- all the news channels want somebody who looks like Lynne,I notice.
    Mike Schulmann. Gee,Raddy said Mike was an arrogant jerk. I dont see it. At all.
    Rob Mayeda for always being the adult in the weather bizz.
    Hey- Stanley Roberts. The man could stare down Godzilla.
    Amy Holyfield. Always pleasant. Nice.
    Ah, Christine Sze. Oh lord don't let me be wrong. I'm putting a lot of karma there.
    The list can be longer. One day part 2.

  10. How smart would it be to "hit on"(harass) Lisa Bloom. Lisa Bloom is the daughter of Gloria Allred. She is also a lawyer who does a lot of sex harassment cases. Case closed.

  11. Look,I'm fine with young sports radio- I said,that the only way for any station to take on KNBR.
    BUT!..when are we going to get some adult sports radio? Funny,smart, adult humor? and decades of life experience? Marty Lurie comes close..but his right wing ties ( "He bought a Volvo C-90") and name dropping of conservatives has no balance. Unless its the rare Lowell Cohn talk.
    I cant see how NPR and KQED FM. just pretend baby boomers have given up on sports.KPFA? Sure.
    And Marty needs to meet wealthy libs who drive Nissan Leafs powered by solar panels.

    2. Kristen Sze.. so ABC hired a bunch of annoying Jr Woodchucks around her so of course she looks like the adult in the room now.

  15. Rich Walcoff ... er Lieberman ... always gotta hate Gassy. Consider her Bay Area mornings promo. She half-ass jogs six steps, fucks off to a market for shopping, makes a homemade pie and then microwaves it. Natural born perfection. Just breathe her in and enjoy the ride, Rich!
