If you’ve wondered where the live-in-the-sky traffic reports went on KGO Radio, they’ve gone away as part of cost-cutting. Veteran helicopter traffic reporter Katie O’Shea did her last gig for the station June 28. Which, other things aside, is a big blow for fans of her Facebook page, and the marvelous aerial shots (like the one above) that populate it. There’s a piece about her in today’s MediaNews Group papers. She’ll continue to sell real estate in Oakland.
