I know Radnich felt he was heir to the long term "trustworthy" anchor. Before him Pete Wilson thought he was until Pete got his radio show,then revealed himself to be a right wingnut "Gay Marriage will ruin America". You were proved wrong Pete.
So,there is no real heir. Dan Ashley?..eh. Ken Bastida had a good chance,but KPIX moved him in and out of view. Out of sight,out of mind too often with Ken.
Van Amburg and Dave McElhatton from the 60's - 80's. Yet to be equaled.
