Dave Clark might replace Richmond

Dennis Richmond's retirement announcement yesterday offered no clues about who will replace him on the market's top-rated newscast. "Mornings on 2" co-anchor Frank Somerville had been seen as the heir apparent until last October, when Channel 2 hired Dave Clark (pictured), who had been an anchor for KCBS-KCAL in Los Angeles. In an e-mail to friends (which was obtained by LA Observed and Matier & Ross) Clark suggested he was being groomed as a replacement for Richmond. Clark started at Channel 2 on Nov. 1 doing the early morning news, replacing Mark Curtis. Curtis is now a reporter at Channel 2. At the time, management denied Clark was in line to replace Richmond.

I grew up watching Ch.2 and I'll watch my news elsewhere if Clark replaces Dennis even if it means staying up an extra hour to do so. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that way. Why didn't KTVU think of signing up Tom Sinkovitz? At least he's from the Bay Area.

I don't know. I stopped watching the KTVU Morning News once this guy took the place of Mark Curtis.

Can we say... boring? And, by the looks of his email sent to friends...overrated?
