Check out KOCE’s Real Orange program tonight at 6:30 and 11:00 for a chat about the first several weeks of Voice of OC’s life and the election night event we’re doing with KOCE.

I’ll be on with Ed Arnold and Ann Pulice talking about our early triumphs and challenges as well as giving folks a sense of what to expect from us in the run-up to the June 8 primary.

Be sure to tune in, and don’t hesitate to e-mail me with feedback at
