On the Docket This Weekend at Occidental College: The Future of the LA Times

It should be a most interesting Saturday afternoon in Eagle Rock thanks to the 6th Annual LA Media Reform Summit. There are always pockets of LA media that could use a little reform, but for this edition, organizers are focusing on an outlet that could will be looking at major changes: the LA Times.

Former FCC commissioner Michael Copps will kick things off at 1 p.m. with a keynote address. Then, at 2 p.m., KPFK-FM Background Briefing host Ian Masters will moderate a discussion of the imminent Tribune Co/LAT hand-off. Joining him will be Huffington Post LA reporter Kathleen Miles, Media Matters for America vp Angelo Carusone and former LAT columnist Tim Rutten. The other panel will look at how LA media news coverage can be improved.

Admission to the event, including a 5 p.m. reception, is $20.00 general and $10.00 for students and seniors. If you’re interested in RSVP-ing in advance, you can do so here.
