According to to the pay site RonFineman.com, Channel 2 was thinking seriously of taking Jim Hill out of the sports anchor slot. Hill didn't want to go, and he got Danny Bakewell of the Brotherhood Crusade and L.A. Sentinel to come in and appeal to KCBS general manager Don Corsini. Fineman says Urban League head John Mack confirmed the account for him and added that Bakewell was representing his views. "Jim has the full support of the African American community," Mack told Fineman. If Hill's future has been decided, it's not yet clear.
