FROM THIS EPISODE

Is Donald Sterling preparing to sell the Los Angeles Clippers? We’ll catch up on the latest reports. Next, we hear from a journalist who went for a month without using soap. Instead, she sprayed a special bacteria on her skin. In our weekly film segment, we catch up on this week’s big releases. Then we catch up with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti about his first year in office, a milestone he hit this week. Finally, we look at another big city that elected a new leader about a year ago -- New York -- and examine how Garcetti compares to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.
