I am Public Affairs Director for KXLU Los Angeles, 88.9 FM. I produce and host “Echo in the Sense,” a weekly hour-long radio show featuring long form interview, lectures, and magazine-like feature pieces. The program has been on-air since 1994.
At the 48TH Southern California Journalism Awards, I scored this hat-trick:
Winner in 3 categories:
- Best Website of a Native Internet Publication (i-8) (for www.echointhesense.com)
- Best Design and Layout in the Online Category (i-3) **Beating LAtimes.com and Variety.com**
- Designer of the Year (a-8)
