Deadline L.A. with Barbara Osborn & Howard Blume on KPFK 90.7 FM | http://bit.ly/1qwCV4Q
Deadline LA Mondays, 3:00 PM (pst)
CO-HOSTS: Barbara Osborn and Howard Blume, Producer: Laurie Kaufman
DESCRIPTION: Deadline L.A. is KPFK's roving eye on the media. We praise and pummel the news media for how it is - or isn't - covering stories.
- BIO AND OTHER INFO:
Host Barbara Osborn is a communications consultant at Wow The Crowd. She consults on strategy, storytelling and style for nonprofit leaders. She also teaches a doctoral seminar at USC Annenberg in community based participatory research.
For 15 years, she was strategic communications director at Liberty Hill Foundation, one of the country's leading social change foundations. She also has an extensive background as a print reporter, and radio and TV documentary producer. She has conducted several studies of the local L.A. news media in conjunction with Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting. In them, she revealed that our most cynical suspicions about the local tv news are true: If it bleeds it leads and surfing dogs do get more airtime than public officials. Shortly after its debut in spring 1997, Deadline LA, was hailed as L.A.'s "best new radio program" by New Times L.A.
- Co-host Howard Blume is an education reporter at The L.A. Times. Prior to joining The Times, he was managing editor at The Jewish Journal and an award-winning reporter at The L.A. Weekly. He joined Deadline L.A. in November 2004.
