LA Goes for the Gold Again

Hosted by  • 

Los Angeles has a lot going for it as the potential host of the 2024 Summer Games. The city hosted the Games back in 1984 and there are stadiums already built for another summer games event. US Olympic officials say there is plenty of local support in the city’s bid to host the Games. But is the fact that taxpayers will be stuck with unexpected costs causing the Olympic flame to dim? KCRW's Steve Chiotakis spoke to Mike Gorrell, a reporter at the Salt Lake Tribune who covered the 2002 Salt Lake Games, and Alan Abrahamson, founder and columnist of “3 Wire Sports,” a blog about the Olympic movement and international sports.
