LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 8, 2009) - TOWN HALL Los Angeles' weekly radio magazine "TOWN HALL Journal" is now in its fifth week on 89.3 FM KPCC - Southern California Public Radio - airing Sunday evenings at 9:00 PM. An informative half-hour news magazine, "TOWN HALL Journal" takes an in-depth look into issues important to Angelenos. Hosted by veteran ABC News Correspondent, Judy Muller, the show draws upon TOWN HALL's speakers, both past and present.

Listener comments have been favorable. "Town Hall Los Angeles and KPCC together, Wow! My two favorite places to get in-depth information from people who understand and promote thoughtful discourse." And, "I have heard great things about Town Hall Los Angeles, and, having never been to one of their events, I greatly enjoyed having the opportunity to listen to this program. Judy Muller did a great job of covering this topic in a balanced way!"

Upcoming TOWN HALL Journal episodes are on October 11, "Creating a Healthy City: The San Francisco Model for Health Care Reform" featuring Gavin Newsom, Mayor of the City and County of San Francisco; October 18, "Hand Washing, Not Hand-Wringing: Preparing for H1N1"; October 25, "Banking Bounces Back?

The "Journal" enhances TOWN HALL's events by further investigating the critical issues facing Los Angeles -- a city often called the Ellis Island of the 21st century.

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.
