Main Topic Some Big Changes in LA's Journalistic Landscape 12 MIN, 15 SEC

The Tribune Company says it's ready to consider offers for the Los Angeles Times.  The so-called "alternative" LA Weekly has already been bought out by New Times Media, a chain which once tried--and failed--to compete with the Weekly. Yesterday, it was announced that Jill Stewart, a principal writer for New Times LA, will be the Weekly's Deputy Editor of News under Laurie Ochoa, who continues as Editor. We talk about changes in place and what might be to come.

Guests:
Laurie Ochoa, Co-editor and Co-founder, Slake magazine
Kevin Roderick, Editor and Publisher of LA Observed

Reporter's Notebook Griffith Observatory Reopens 13 MIN, 12 SEC

The Griffith Observatory has been closed for five years.  After a week of private advance showings it will open again to the public tomorrow. Admission to the observatory is still free, but reservations will be required for a while, and there's no parking at the top of the hill. There will be a charge for shuttle rides from Hollywood and Highland, the LA Zoo parking lot and the Botanical Gardens. 

Guests:
Edward Krupp, Griffith Observatory (@GriffithNews)
