It’s the entertainment capital, an international travel hub and an American icon. But news coverage of Los Angeles is facing a crisis. The LAist, LA Weekly, Los Angeles magazine and the Los Angeles Times have either shut down or seen their ranks depleted. KCRW’s Warren Olney leads a panel discussion with L.A. media leaders to discuss why this is happening and what we can do about it.


  • Warren Olney, Host, KCRW’s To the Point and Olney in L.A. 


  • Daniel Hernandez, Journalist and Editor, LA Taco
  • Gabriel Kahn, Professor of Professional Practice of Journalism, USC Annenberg
  • Julia Wick, Former Editor, LAist
  • Erin Aubry Kaplan, Author and L.A. Times Op-Ed Contributor

Lunch will be provided.
