Brian Hackney’s “Eye on the Bay”

I stumbled upon the following videos on the Channel 5 website in San Francisco. A segment they run is called “Eye on the Bay” that is hosted by Brian Hackney. I knew Brian when I worked at KCPR (Cal Poly’s radio station) in the late 70’s/early 80’s. Brian has a great announcers voice and did a lot for the station. He went on to use his engineering/Physics degree but then pursued being a TV weatherman. First at KSBY, then at San Francisco TV stations.

Brian recently brought his TV segment to SLO County. He obviously knows the area and the below videos are a great overview of things around SLO. Paul Jacobus, another KCPR-alum, is also in the video. Paul lives in the area and I usually run into him when I go give blood at United Blood on Broad Street. Paul also has a great announcers voice and helped me a lot at KCPR.

Take a look at the videos! Brian did another segment that featured Hearst Castle, Cambria, Cayucos, and Morro Bay but those weren’t available on the CBS 5 website 🙁

(I tried to embed all 3 videos below but it only displayed one of them. Click here to see the other 2 videos.)
