FROM THIS EPISODE

The owner of the LA-area culture and news site LAist.com abruptly shut it down on Thursday, along with several other sister publications across the country.  The decision comes a week after employees of the site's parent company voted to unionize. Kevin Roderick of LA Observed joins KCRW's Steve Chiotakis to chat about what this means for the LA-area news scene.
