Your Call: Reporting on key issues facing California


On the January 22nd edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of California Governor Jerry Brown’s State of the State address and his 2016-17 budget proposal.

We often hear that California is in the middle of an economic boom, but what about the 9 million people who live in poverty? Who is reporting on the social and economic issues facing marginalized communities? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with me, Rose Aguilar and you.
