KOCT, Your Community Channel, was acknowledged by the Chamber of Commerce and the City of Oceanside for our community service and our 29 years as an organizational chamber member. It was a nice change of pace to be in front of the cameras instead of behind them! KOCT is proud of our long relationship with a progressive Oceanside Chamber of Commerce and we appreciate the recognition.
Shown here Left to Right are KOCT’s Station Manager Jake Rush, KOCT Board members Debbie Allen, Liz Rhea, Margret Merlock, KOCT Executive Director Tom Reeser, Chamber CEO David Nydegger and KOCT Board member and OUSD Trustee Robert “Camo” Gleisberg.

Don’t miss next weeks JOURNALIST ROUNDTABLE program! We have a great list of topics and guests:
California State Assemblyman Rock Chavez (District 76)
We’ll ask Rocky about this year’s budget, the state of California politics, and about his run for a U.S. Senate seat.
Our second guest will be former San Diego City Councilmember Carl DeMaio—he and former San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed are proposing a Pension Reform Initiative for the November 2016 ballot. His goal is to give voters the final say on compensation and pension benefits for state and local government employees
Our third guest is Jose Aponte—the Library Director for San Diego County. We’ll ask Jose about the new partnership that the County Library is entering into with the Regional Task Force on the Homeless. We’ll ask Jose why our libraries have a unique perspective on the homeless and about some of the valuable service they often provide that can help the homeless to find jobs and housing.
Our final guest will be Oceanside Councilmember Ester Sanchez. She will discuss the tragic death of a young bicyclist on South Coast Highway in October 2015 and the changes that are coming to Coast Highway in an effort to make the street safer for bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists.
The show airs ‘live’ on KOCT’s Community Channel 18 at 6 pm on Cox Cable and AT&T’s U-Verse OR you can watch the program ‘Stream’ via koct.org on your smart phone, tablet or computer!
