PBS So Cal is bringing back it’s popular public affairs show focused on Orange County politics and government with host, Orange County Business Journal Editor at Large, Rick Reiff.
Reiff has already produced two “test run” shows that can be seen with a featured panel discussion including OC Bar Association President Ashleigh Aitken, the OC Register’s Brian Calle and Watchdog.org’s Will Swaim discussing the county’s jail informant scandal and other stories.
An interview segment with Voice of OC Publisher Norberto Santana Jr. is also posted online with Santana discussing the Voice of OC model and the future of online non-profit news.
Reiff announced that other top officials who have already agreed to appear on the show are U.S. Rep. Loretta Sanchez, State Sen. John Moorlach, and former Allergan CEO David Pyott.
The effort is being sponsored by Five Point Communities, PBS SoCal and KDOC (as studio host) and Reiff has put together a talented production team – including co-producer Scott Hays, editor Richard Garippo and director David Marquez.
