We joined our partners at KPCC 89.3 FM again this week for the Orange County Journalists Roundtable on AirTalk with host Larry Mantle.

This week’s segment, which aired at 11:40 a.m. Thursday, featured Orange County Register reporter Teri Sforza, KPCC reporter Ben Bergman and Voice of OC reporter Nick Gerda.

The topics included:

  • Monday’s deadly car accident in Newport Beach that killed five high-schoolers.
  • The Disneyland employee who allegedly dropped a dry-ice “bomb” into a trash can.
  • The ongoing controversy over a mass layoff at the Honda Center.
  • Sen. Barbara Boxer’s call for a federal criminal investigation of management at the San Onofre nuclear plant.
  • Air quality regulators’ proposal to ban beach bonfires in Orange and Los Angeles counties.
