Tune to Larry Mantle’s AirTalk on KPCC, 89.3 FM, (one of LA’s NPR affiliates) Thursday morning between 11:30 and noon  to hear Voice of OC’s Norberto Santana Jr. chat about the week’s top stories in Orange County.

Norberto will be on the air with the Orange County Register’s Teri Sforza and OC Weekly’s Gustavo Arellano as part of a revived, biweekly AirTalk segment on Orange County news.
