The Ridiculously Rapid Rise of Angels Weekly Host Alex Curry

There are many memorable tidbits in the easyreadernews.com profile of Alex Curry, the 24-year-old Manhattan Beach resident who debuted this month as host of the Friday Fox Sports West show Angels Weekly. But we were particularly struck by the following details:

Sullivan said that the Times’ system prevents duplications. “The Los Angeles Times Media Group does utilize the United States Post Service (USPS) to deliver Local Values in Redondo Beach and we are gravely concerned about what this photo appears to depict,” Sullivan said in a statement. “The Times will be working with the USPS to understand the circumstances and their plans to remedy the situation if necessary, and will join with the producers of the other mailers apparently disposed of to gain a full understanding.”
