over the bay area. more coming up. >> we have seen numerous problems on the roads and we keep having them come in, unfortunately. if you are heading towards the san mateo bridge, traffic is actually extra slow right now southbound 880. it's because of an earliering about rig accident on the ramp to westbound 92. word of a new problem on bay bridge. details coming up. iraq's president seems to be trying to get help to get the two american hikers out of jail in iran. there were hints this week that they would be released steam soon. charlie d'agata is live in london with the very latest. charlie, what can you tell us. >> reporter: well, good morning to you. shane bauer and josh fattal may be coming home soon. as you mentioned, the iraqi president is now on board doing what he can in terms of diplomacy. a jet may have been flown from oman to tehran. these are indicators because their companion, sarah shourd,
6:31 am
who was released a year ago today, she was released in a similar circumstance, a jet was flown from oman to pick sarah up and then she was brought back to the united states a couple of days after that. it's worth noting in terms of timing, however, there's a holiday in iran friday and saturday. -- excuse me, today and friday so there are indications that if this is to go ahead, the two young men could be released on saturday. what has clouded the situation is events earlier this week where the ear arenaian president mahmoud ahmadinejad -- where the iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad said they would be released within days, then the clerics who control the courts said not only was the information wrong but he should have not been giving it out. these two, these mixed messages, are some of the indications we get a year ago when sarah was released. so it's copying a play-by-play. and that's what's made people hopeful now that we may see these two men return before ahmadinejad returns to the
6:32 am
united states next week. >> i was going to say. that seems to be probably a nice pr move on his part before he speaks to the u.n. why not release the two students and let them come back home and, of course, he will get a better welcome. >> reporter: that's exactly right. and president mahmoud ahmadinejad really needs this politically but we spoke to one of the lawyers yesterday and i said, well, is this really a song and dance? is this mixed message something that's being orchestrated out of iran? and he said, well, no. ahmadinejad isn't that well supported by some of the clerics. they want to make sure that when the decision is made, it's a decision that they do and ultimately, it resides with the supreme leader. so ahmadinejad would love to have these two men return to the you status just in time for him to go to the u.s. to address the u.n. general assembly next week. this would give him great political currency. it's not a dead certainty that the clerics will allow that to happen of the we are seeing a
6:33 am
power struggle in iran. >> thank you, charlie d'agata in london. 6:33 now. two people are dead after a fire aboard a cruise liner off the coast of norway today. nine other people are injured, most of them crewmembers. the coast guard checking reports that four others are still missing. the norwegian ship had 262 people on board many rescued from lifeboats. no word on what may have caused that fire on board that cruiser. 6:33. one of the top republican presidential hopefuls will be attending a fundraising event this morning in an unlikely place. heavily democratic marin county. minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann is set to appear at the 9 a.m. event at a private home in san rafael. bachmann is a favorite among members of the tea party movement. the in most polls she is currently placing in the upper half among republican candidates. a big leadership shake-up in the giants organization and it's happening even before the end of the season that has been a disappointment for the giants
6:34 am
is and, of course, the fans, too. anne makovec is live at at&t park while the team gets ready for a big press conference coming up in short order. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. no surprise the giants have not been as hot this year as they may have been in years past. but the shake-up at the top appears to be about the money as much drama does appear to be. bill neukom has only been with the team for a few years since the end of the 2008 season when he took over as giants managing general partner and chief executive officer. of course the team came into millions of extra dollars when the giants won the world series last year and neukom spent a lot of it on big contracts, players like aubrey huff and carlos beltran. reports say his free spending ways appear to have annoyed the executive committee of the giants ownership group. >> i don't think the executive committee was upset necessarily about exactly what he was spending it on but they wanted to be kept in the loop and some
6:35 am
of them ended up reading about some of the stuff in the papers or online or watching tv. and that did not make them happy. >> reporter: so giants president and coo larry baer is going to be taking over as giants ceo. he has been with the team since 1992. he helped push for the construction of at&t park. neukom is going to stay on as chairman emeritus in 2012. the giants planning on making this announcement later on this morning. it is earlier than they had wanted. it looks like they kind of had their hands forced by early media statement. they said "out of respect to the fans and the team, the organization had planned to announce the transition at the conclusion of the 2011 season." now, major league baseball also has to approve the deal but get this both neukom and baer both expected to be at the press conference this morning. i would say that could be a little awkward.
6:36 am
but we'll see. frank? >> yeah. that should make for some interesting words to be sure. now, neukom still owns a small percentage of the team. is he going to have to give that up or will he still own a small part of the giants? >> reporter: it will be interesting to see how things go forward. the giants say they still have the utmost respect for him. he is still going to be around. he is still going to be part of the board. but what role he will play remains to be seen. >> thank you. a price tag most students can't imagine. this morning university of california regents will discuss controversial tuition hikes. now, the board meets in san francisco in two hours from now. the goal is to come up with a multi-year funding plan that would depend on how much money the state will kick in. it would allow for tuition hikes for as much as 16% per year for the next four years. currently under grand tuition

6:38 am
the derailed train was put back on the tracks and hauled to the main station where it's now being investigated. earlier, repair crews why checking out every inch of these tracks to find out if this was a mechanical malfunction or a vta spokesman says this could be operator error. >> the incident of the wheels coming off the track, it is a situation that is going to be looked at and it is under investigation. we are checking to make sure that there hasn't been major damage to the rails or the car. these incidents are not ee normal occurrence. >> reporter: vta does have a very good safety record and derailments don't happen very often for light rail. in fact, the last one that happened, there was a car that struck a light rail train forcing it off the tracks. we talked to some passengers this morning. they are concerned about what happened. but everybody we talked to said they are still going to ride
6:39 am
the light rail and they are confident that the safety will be maintained on the vta. that's the latest from here in san jose. back to you guys. >> matt, they are not expecting any more delays throughout the day, right? >> right. as i mentioned, service has been fully restored. it was restored shortly after the derailment. so that's not something to worry about. vta light rail service is normal as can be today. >> thank you, matt. 6:39 now. this is not a thursday light day for traffic. >> no. it's been really busy out there. >> it has been really busy. sometimes we have days like this. it all started with that vta derailment that you just mentioned then for a while the webster street tube closed due to an overnight accident. fortunately, things have been clearing quickly so nothing has create a huge hotspot but now word of a new problem at the bay bridge where we never like to see problems. it's actually a stalled motorcycle on the upper deck approaching treasure island. as you can see, we went from

6:45 am
some of those will linger in the forecast throughout the day. the reason that we're seeing these unseasonably cool conditions, sea breezes bringing cooler air through tomorrow, as well. northern california temperatures also below average for them after year. sacramento only at 85. redding into the 90s though today and about a 20% chance of some thunderstorms in lake tahoe and in yosemite for this afternoon. highs here look at this, not a single 80 on the map. only 70 in napa today, 75 fairfield, oakland 63, redwood city at 68. these cool conditions will continue as we make our way into friday. a little but the of a warmup for your weekend though, saturday and sunday seeing more sunshine and seeing that high pressure build in and monday, tuesday, wednesday, finally going to see some nice hot temperatures in those inland spots. that's a look at your forecast. elizabeth, still a mess on the roads? >> well, it's definitely busier out there.
6:46 am
conditions near the dublin interchange westbound and eastbound 580, headlights approaching 680. our earlier problem was a little farther west. on the maps, westbound 580 right there near the redwood road on-ramp we had an earlier accident with three chp units on scene involving a car and bicyclist. an ambulance was heading to the scene. the main lines of the freeway were not impacted but there were city street closures in the area. to the north bay, checking on the golden gate bridge traffic okay across the span but farther north up in novato actually southbound 101 right past the delong exit, just getting word of an accident there. apparently in the center divide. all right. looks like they are turning this bay bridge camera around. they tend to like to do this when i'm on air. they are spinning it around towards the incline it looks like because we have a stalled motorcycle and it's actually just past the tunnel. so if you are traveling westbound 80, it is stacked up beyond the pay gates.
6:47 am
it sounds like it's beyond the 880 overcrossing now. so by our next traffic hit we'll show you that it's crowded up the incline as well heading into san francisco. the san mateo bridge westbound 92 the commute direction. the bridge itself looks great but there were a couple of accidents on southbound 880 toward 92 and that really backs things up so traffic is slow from at least a street. and once again remember kcbs once you do hit the roads. they're our radio partners. and you can find them at 740-am and 106.9-fm. 6:47. up employment claims up, consumer prices also up today, unemployment claims up. >> a check on the news impacting the market. we'll check in with jason brooks with kcbs and good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is a case where europe really is the prime factor for wall street this morning. we are getting a barrage of really weak economic reports. yet the market is moving higher because of moves out of europe. let's get to the economy
6:48 am
numbers first. on the job market really poor report. weekly jobs report surged by 11,000 to 428,000 four-week average also moving higher. it's the highest level it's been in three months. and it's even more disturbing was last week labor day factored in typically on short work weeks the numbers come down a bit. on the inflation front, yesterday we reported that wholesale side inflation was flat. but it looks like businesses are moving more of those costs on to the consumer. consumer side inflation rose almost a .5% although if you strip away gas and food it was up a more tepid .2%. but the core rate is up 2% in the prior 12 months. that's the biggest yearly increase in about three years. stock market however is pretty solid this morning after the european central bank in conjunction with several other central banks around the world including the federal reserve announced it's going to make more dollars available to struggling european banks that are trying to deal with that
6:49 am
debt crisis and the dollar is a lot lower against the euro and a weak dollar tends to help stocks. corporate profits over the past couple of years have done well because of overseas sales because of a weaker dollar and wall street is reflecting that this morning. right now the dow is up 77 points. nasdaq is gaining 12. the s&p is up by 7. netflix shares are down more than 13% after the company announced that it's got about 1 million less subscribers now than just a month ago. most of those losses coming in the dvd form, also some losses in streaming after the company raised its subscription fees for the dvd and streaming compensation this month. >> as expected. >> reporter: they knew it was coming and perhaps they didn't think it would be this big. a lot of other services are coming online to compete with them. it will be interesting. >> thank you, jason brooks with kcbs and have a great day. >> reporter: you, too.
6:50 am
>> thanks. singing legend diana ross will be here in the bay area this weekend plus the much- anticipated movie being released tomorrow. liam mayclem is here from "eye on the bay" to tell us all the details especially about "straw dogs." scary stuff. >> yeah. a scary movie. i'm looking a little worn. i saw this film last night. i'm still disturbed. first, kate bosworth and james marsden star in a remake of a '70s b movie classic controversial film in its day "straw dogs." the story centers around a hollywood couple actress played by kate bosworth. she is amy and then the writer husband james marsden. they return to amy's roots in rural mississippi. and this is if you not original is a nasty tale about a disagreeable bunch of rednecks who brutalize the well-to-do city couple until the couple turn the tables on them. the film plods for the first hour, sadly by the time the action kicks in, you have already stopped caring. >> oh. >> the violence, gratuitous
6:51 am
over the top. the acting in places is wooden and some of the plot lines are just plain laughable. so i hate to say it, i rarely do this but spare yourself two hours this weekend. do something other. although frank you may like that scene. [ laughter ] >> you should have read the original from 1971. it starred dustin hoffman and susan george in the original roles. not a big fan of the film. i wanted to love it but just did not. so "straw dogs" gets one big [ noise ] from me. next up, let's talk about something happy, shall we? the complete second season of fox television's hit tv show "glee" is now on blu-ray dvd. i know you're fans. >> i'm a huge fan. >> love it. >> great music show. great acting. but this box set features a "glee" jukebox so frank you can singalong. >> there you go. >> plus some hijacked the scenes action including the making -- plus some behind the scenes action including the making of rocky horror show.

6:57 am
it is a shocker. neukom out and baer in as head of the giants organization. these things are usually all about the money. bill neukom has been with the team since the end of the 2008 season when he took over as giants managing general partner and ceo. the drama began after last year's world series win brought in an influx of extra cash. much of it neukom spent as he saw fit and reports say his free spending ways appear to have caused some riffs with the executive committee of the giants owner ship group. they wanted to be a bigger part of the financial decisions. so it looks like giants president and coo larry baer is going to be taking over as giants ceo. he has been with the team since 1992 and pushed for the construction of at&t park. neukom will stay on, though, as chairman emeritus in 2012. he is also going to he remain a minor owner investor in the
