Second Season of TOWN HALL Journal on 89.3 FM KPCC Begins February 14

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 11, 2010) - TOWN HALL Los Angeles' weekly radio magazine "TOWN HALL Journal" begins its second season on 89.3 FM KPCC -- Southern California Public Radio -- broadcasting Sundays at 9:00 PM. An informative half-hour news magazine, "TOWN HALL Journal" takes an in-depth look at issues important to Angelenos. Host Judy Muller brings her independent eye to exploring the city's accelerating transformation. The broadcast shares the best ideas of recent TOWN HALL speakers and dips into the "Vault of Speakers-Past," providing insight into the city's history.

The "Journal" furthers the mission of TOWN HALL Los Angeles by bringing open public discussion to a larger audience of engaged citizens. Response to the pilot season was enthusiastic. "Great reporting on legalizing these drugs' use in California. Congratulations to the panel and Judy Muller for reporting this," posted one listener in response to the episode "Marijuana - Economic Wonder Drug?" After the episode "Breaking the Gang Cycle," a listener wrote, "It's amazing that we put so many resources into incarceration and prosecuting those addicted to drugs and little into gang prevention."

The new season begins on February 14 with the episode "Top 10 Risks of the 21st Century," featuring Willis Group Holdings Chairman and CEO Joseph Plumeri. Upcoming TOWN HALL Journal episodes include "The Pursuit of Innovation" with John Lechleiter, Chairman, President & CEO of Eli Lilly and Company; and "The Daring Young Men and Women of the US Military," with a look at the Berlin airlift, featuring award-winning author, Richard Reeves. Initial second season underwriters are the James and Sally Thomas Family Foundation and Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP.
