Tune in to PBS SoCal at 1 p.m. today to catch Voice of OC reporter Nick Gerda chat with SoCal Insider’s Rick Reiff about the recent issues at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.

A minor leak in January has forced the shutdown of San Onofre while the cause is investigated and has generated concern from several residents, environmental organizations and elected officials.

Also appearing on the SoCal Insider show are Richard McPherson, an executive with energy and defense contractor DownRange Global Solutions, and Gary Headrick, founder of the environmental group San Clemente Green.

The broadcast repeats Friday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 11:30 a.m. A channel lineup for PBS SoCal (KOCE-TV) can be found here.
