Zócalo Public Square Gives California Editor Joe Mathews a Weekly Column

While the future of KCETLink’s SoCal Connected is very much up in the air, another namesake is about to be launched. Beginning Thursday April 4, Zócalo Public Square California editor Joe Mathews (pictured) will be writing a weekly column titled “Connecting California.” It’s the site’s first such regular feature.

In a brief teaser, Zócalo promise that Mathews will avoid the habit of many other Golden State commentators by focusing on the future rather than the past:

Each week, Mathews will offer new narratives for California – stories that show readers how life is here today, who Californians are now and how 21st-century California communities work — and don’t work. He’ll challenge media assumptions — that California’s people are a collection of competing demographic groups, that the good old days are behind us and that our politicians are always to blame for all our problems—by offering stories from all over the state.

Mathews’ column will also be distributed to the site’s syndication partners. This group includes the Orange County Register, Los Angeles Daily News, U-T San Diego and San Francisco Chronicle.
