FROM THIS EPISODE

The NFL says the St. Louis Rams are coming to Inglewood — back to the massive Los Angeles TV market they left 21 years ago. Skeptics say team owners can't be trusted, but boosters insist this time is different. What will it mean for the taxpayers of Inglewood — if it doesn't turn out to be another broken promise?

Also tonight, after a national search for a new leader, the LA School Board went with a local veteran. We talk with Michelle King, the new Superintendent.

If the Rams Are Really Coming, Will Inglewood Win or Lose? 15 MIN, 11 SEC

Since the Rams and the Raiders left 21 years ago, NFL team owners have threatened smaller market cities: if they don't come up with big money, their teams will move to LA. Yesterday, the owners voted to move the Rams from St. Louis, Missouri to Inglewood. Is it for real? Andrew Hogan is founder of Bring Back the Los Angeles Rams which claims 47,000 members.

LA Unified Selects a District Insider as New Superintendent 11 MIN, 23 SEC

In the search for a new Superintendent, LA's elected school board paid a head-hunting firm to search the nation. Now the search is over — and the winner is Michelle King. She started out as a student aide at LAUSD, became a teacher, a principal — and finally the chief deputy to the last two superintendents. All seven board members made the choice unanimous.
