Olney is the executive producer and host of KCRW’s Which Way, L.A.? and To The Point. Morrison is a columnist at the Los Angeles Times and the host of the Patt Morrison show on KPCC.

The Bill Stout Memorial Award was created by the Community Advocates, Inc., a non-profit in the human relations field led by David A. Lehrer and Joe R. Hicks, and chaired by Richard J. Riordan.
