A Progressive Forum: Orange Coast Voice

Our show airing Monday August 7 focused on the absence of a progressive publication covering Orange County, and why that will change in September 2006.
We speak with labor organizer John Earl, who is starting a new publication, Orange Coast Voice, offering a forum to viewpoints and people ignored by mainstream and so-called alternative media in Orange County. The paper will be a community paper, with 15-20,000 copies distributed in Costa Mesa and Huntington Beach.

Earl, a former KUCI program host ("The News Gap") and publisher of Orange County Organizer (, will discuss his plans for the paper, which will be distributed free around the county.

See press release for more information.
