Any Former Anchors in There?

Yesterday, FTVLive told you that KNTV's former San Jose studio burned down in a 5 alarm fire.

Firefighters are now investigating what caused the 5 bell blaze on Sunday afternoon and have found out that a number of homeless people were living inside the abandoned building at the intersection of Park Avenue and Montgomery Street.

A man who was among the homeless squatters occupying a building in downtown San Jose that was once the former home of the KNTV news station says a relative may have died in the fire that destroyed the building.

No word if any of the homeless were former staffers let go by Granite Broadcasting when they took over the station. 

Journalist Wearing Google Glass is Attacked

A Reporter for Business Insider said that he had his Google Glass snatched of his face and smashed to the ground in San Francisco’s Mission District Friday evening.

Kyle Russell said the attack happened as he was walking on the sidewalk with a colleague. A woman came up to him and yelled, “Glass!” and grabbed the device off his face and sprinted away, he said.

Russell said he chased the woman through traffic for a block before she stopped and flung the $1,500 device onto the ground, breaking it – then running away again.

The attack happened just after Russell had been covering a march in protest against a Google lawyer who allegedly evicted people from a building he purchased.

Russell said that, “in retrospect, I can see how [wearing Glass after Mission District Google protest] might not have been the best idea.”

Ya think?

Shhhhh!!!! Don't Tell Anyone

OK this is supposed to be a secret so don't tell anyone OK?

WFOR the CBS O&O in Miami has gone out a bought a drone.

TV stations have gone drone crazy and it looks like WFOR is about to get in on the act.

But, this is still supposed to be top secret and not known to the competition yet.

WPEC in West Palm Beach bought a drone a while ago. Really it's just a couple hundred dollar toy that you can buy at any Brookstone, but let's not rain on their parade. WFOR has decided that they also need a drone to lift their ratings along with a small camera that can shoot video from above. 

So now the CBS O&O is going to be the first in the Miami market to have their very own toy....errrrr....drone.

Just don't tell anyone yet. 

Savannah Guthrie Starts up Baby Blog

The Today Show's Savannah Guthrie got secretly pregnant and then secretly married, but now she's about to tell you all about the former.

Guthrie has launched a baby blog (because God knows there isn't enough of those) on the Today Show's website. 

Guthrie writes I’m 42 years old, and I honestly didn’t know if I’d ever get this chance. I’ve never been more thankful, or felt more blessed from above. I know how lucky I am. For a long time, I think I was afraid to even let myself think about how much I hoped to one day have a baby. So that’s my mindset as my hubby and I embark on this adventure, and you and I embark on this blog: joy and profound gratitude for many blessings and for the kindness and support of all of you wonderful and loyal friends on Today.com.

Now, let’s get on to the really big and important issues — like the greatness of the elastic waistband. See you from this space soon.

Oh boy! We can hardly wait tip the next entry. 

What was Wrong with Fox News Anchor Gregg Jarrett?

There was a lot of chatter on social media on Saturday, when people started to wonder what the hell was wrong with Fox News Anchor Gregg Jarrett?

Many were posting that Jarrett was not sounding normal during his FNC shifts at 2:30pm, 4:30pm and 6pm.

At 6pm he sounded real bad, was talking slower and slurring his words.

Around 6:40pm he left the show and was never back on with co-anchor Arthel Neville.

Arthel Neville never mentioned if Gregg was sick and had to leave early.

Fox News has also not commented on what happened.

Here is a video during the 6PM hour from Saturday, clearly something is wrong:

SNL takes Well Deserved Swipe at CNN

While CNN continues to embarrass themselves with their "Breaking News" coverage of the missing plane, the rest of the world is laughing at them.

Even Saturday Night Live had fun mocking CNN's breaking news alerts and non-stop coverage of the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

Cast members Beck Bennett and Vanessa Bayer starred in an ad for a CNN-themed pregnancy test that gave regular updates without ever giving actual — or accurate — results.

Sounds familiar don't you think?

Here's the video:

Fire Burns Down Former KNTV Studio

San Jose firefighters fought 5-alarm fire in downtown last night.

The location of the fire was at the former KNTV NBC Bay Area KNTV news building at 645 Park Ave.

At the height of the fire, flames and thick black smoke could be seen for miles in the South Bay.

San Jose Fire Department officials had to call for aid from neighboring cities to battle the fire.

Firefighters upgraded the fire to a five-alarm blaze Sunday afternoon.

Some would argue that this station was already burned to the ground when Granite bought it.

Just saying.... 

Reporting Live from the Idiots

When the University of Minnesota mean's Hockey team lost in the college championship, the fans got a bit restless.  

KMSP (Minneapolis) Reporter Jonathan Choe was on the scene as riot police responded to monitor the crowds.

And when you add idiots + police + alcohol + television camera = chaos.

Choe held his own while trying to file his report....but it got ugly.
