CLEAR CHANNEL LOS ANGELES ANNOUNCES “DIVERSE LA”
Clear Channel Los Angeles announces “Diverse LA,” a new three week series of special broadcasts airing every weekday from 9AM to Noon on KTLK AM 1150, starting March 12. Greg Ashlock, Los Angeles Market Manager said, “These 45 hours of prime programming will feature local hosts and guests discussing a wide variety of issues associated with the spectrum of experience of all Angelenos.” Individual shows will examine issues of special concern to African American, Latino, Asian American and other communities.
The Executive Producer of the series is Clear Channel’s Morris O’Kelly, longtime radio producer and political commentator. O’Kelly reports, “This is about Los Angeles hearing voices and viewpoints less often heard while also addressing communities historically underserved. “Diverse LA” will highlight new personalities and newsmakers for the KTLK audience, but more importantly provide a platform for inclusive, substantive dialogue in the public square.”
To be sure the series reaches the widest possible audience, other Clear Channel Los Angeles radio stations will help promote the series and link to it on their websites. This newest project is part of our ongoing commitment to create unique programming that addresses issues important to our diverse communities. We are already seeking hosts andguests for these shows. We invite community members to contact DiverseLA@ClearChannel.com with ideas and input.
According to KFI/KTLK Program Director Robin Bertolucci, “This will be a launching pad for iscovering talent for future opportunities. This is a great way to hear potential talk show hosts and guests in a live environment.” Shows will be archived online after each broadcast at KTLKAM1150.com.
