Local Radio Fans Try to Replace LARadio.com

Mt. San Antonio College professor Tammy Trujillo and student Alan Bailey are trying to fill the radio news void left after LARadio.com came to an end following a 15-year run.

The two started Southern California Radio People, a Facebook group dedicated to providing local radio news.

“I have encouraged my students to look at the real world, and that in radio would be LARadio.com,” Trujillo told Gary Lycan of the Orange County Register. “When Don Barrett announced he was ending it, I talked to my students and one of my superstars, Alan, who is also program director at 90.1 FM Mt. Rock and www.audio8ball.com. I threw him the challenge to start Southern California Radio People.”

The 22-year-old Bailey took up Trujillo’s challenge. “It’s a void not having LARadio.com,” Bailey told Lycan. “But a lot of my generation has Facebook pages. People need to understand it is a hellacious tool for marketing.”

For all of you radio fans, head over to Southern California Radio People and give them a like.
