Rich Lieberman's Media 415 site is reporting that KRON is hiring a new weatherman. Now, talent comes and goes (mostly goes) with brutal regularity here in the world of Bay Area televised news. But what makes this internecine media report of a personnel move interesting -- jaw-dropping, really -- is that KRON has purportedly hired Nick Kosir, the net-famous "rapping weatherman."

Our calls to KRON management have not yet been returned; neither has a call to Kosir's agent and an e-mail to Kosir. But our online search for "rapping weatherman" returned a bounty of delightful clips.

Highlight/lowlight: "There's a slight chance for rain all over this map/from Lake Charles on over to Anahuac."

Ah. He moonwalks, too.

Not sure how this'll play in the Bay Area.

Verdict: He's no worse a rapper than Gerardo. But would Bay Area viewers tune in to watch Gerardo do the weather? We'll find out.

Update, 11 a.m.: Kosir's agent, John Derr, says he can't comment on the rapping weatherman's status with KRON right now. But he hopes to be able to give us some news later today or tomorrow.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
