This is a slow process. Anthony "Pic" Picarelli (sp?) just disappeared about 3 weeks ago. No mention, nada. The "live" reports from a female "lifestyle reporter" at various clubs, et al also disappeared. Although, I'm not surprised. She wasn't very effective and seemed uncomfortable in the role despite some "at times obvious" verbal on-air coaching from Todd.
The magazine format and the :00 :20 :40 breaks call for 3 guests/segments per hour and I think that lining up that number of guests per week is a chore. It's almost as if Todd is responsible for all aspects of his show - guest procurement included. Anybody have any inside info?
