Alameda Is in the News

Oak Street in Alameda has been a busy place for Bay Area TV stations this week.

On Friday afternoon, ABC 7’s “View from the Bay” filmed an interview with Jon Kosorek of Jon’s Street Eats at Oak and Santa Clara Avenue.

The gourmet-on-the-go chef was interviewed by Nick Smith at about 3 p.m., after an Alamedan tipped “View from the Bay” off to Jon’s yummy edibles.

The Alameda resident, Michelle, was glad to get the word out about Jon’s Street Eats mobile restaurant.

Jon is in Alameda every Wednesday and Friday from about 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. He sells items like macaroni and cheese, salmon-steak sandwiches, grilled asparagus and more.  

Just across the street from Street Eats, the parking lot for the Alameda Police Department was active with TV vans like the one standing by for KRON 4 (NBC).

With the story about Max the dog going around the Bay Area and nationwide Thursday, after Max was stolen by his owners from the Alameda Animal Shelter on Fortmann Way, the Island has been in the media spotlight.

At least one of the dog owners/thieves – Richard Cochran – will be in court next week over the incident.

    KPIX “Eye on the Bay was also out filming last week. Tuesday’s episode will supposedly feature all things interesting about Alameda, including (I hope, I hope, I hope) our bike shop and nursery.
