What good is a blog if you can’t use it to rag on other bloggers?
As much as we’d like to believe that 21Q is the only entertainment and media news blog in Sacramento, the truth is that the Viacom-owned stations Channel 13 (KOVR) and Channel 31 (KMAX) got there first with a combined blog on the web.
But – and here comes the petty sniping – the media talent at channels 13 and 31 aren’t exactly putting in much effort. Let’s go down the list, shall we?
“Good Day Sacramento” anchor Marianne McClary’s last blog entry: May 17. Same for broadcast partner Mark S. Allen. Channel 13’s Lisa Gonzales last updated her blog on June 7. Same for “Good Day Sac” weekend anchor Chris Burrous. In fact, the most recent blog item was on June 20 - last Tuesday - from Channel 31 news anchor Stefanie Cruz about visiting her in-laws in Iowa.
Gee, don’t they know that the first lesson of Blogging 101 is to keep feedling the beast with items?
Here’s hoping this posting will prod McClary, et al., to get off their duffs and start typing.
