Somerville's worst fear didn't come true
"My worst fear was that the numbers would go down. I was a little afraid of the unknown," KTVU anchor Frank Somerville tells Chuck Barney of the Contra Costa Times. Actually, Channel 2's ratings during the May sweeps improved slightly over last year's numbers when Dennis Richmond was the station's top anchor. Barney mentions the ratings in a profile of Somerville that contains a lot of personal details — like the fact that Somerville, 51, has been a vegetarian since age 12, that he and his family are moving into the home of former Warriors player Adonal Foyle, and that his wife once tutored him on his on-air presentation.
