GAVIN NEWSOM ON 'INSIDE OC' – KDOC
AIRING – FIVEPOINT RENEWS AS SPONSOR
Laguna Beach, CA (Sept. 21, 2016) – California Lt. Gov. and former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, considered an early favorite in the 2018 race for governor, is making two appearances on "Inside OC with Rick Reiff."
The first episode is a wide-ranging 1-on-1 interview before a studio audience. The second episode features Newsom on a panel discussing the looming marijuana boom in California; polls show heavy voter support for Prop 64, the pot legalization measure that Newsom is championing.
As it did with the recent interview of Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson, commercial station KDOC-TV is joining PBS SoCal and Cox in airing the shows. KDOC plans to air the 1-on-1 interview with Newsom Saturday, Oct. 1 at 7:30 PM and the pot show at the same time the following Saturday, Oct. 8.
PBS SoCal Plus has also added a special airing of the 1-on-1 interview on Oct. 4 at 6:30 PM. All of those airings are in addition to the regular airings on PBS SoCal and Cox that begin next Tuesday, Sept. 27 for the interview and Tuesday, Oct. 4 for the pot show.
Meanwhile, FivePoint, developer of the Great Park neighborhhoods, has re-upped for another season as Inside OC's Gold Sponsor.
"When it comes to supporting this show and OC community programming, Emile Haddad and his FivePoint team are the gold standard," Reiff said.
